You will become the person you decide to be

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is the right thing to do. What happens when you know what you must do but it is the most frightening thing you have ever done? What happens when the right thing is also devastating, overwhelming, frustrating and well, when it just hurts like the dickens?
It is times like these that I am glad I have God covering me because I am not capable of pulling this off alone. Sometimes the “right thing” hurts, sometimes the right thing makes sense, sometimes it doesn’t, sometimes it makes us happy, sometimes not so much. However, in the end, the right thing is something God asks us to do, even when everyone else is doing something else, even when everyone is questioning you or hates you for it, even when it would be much easier to stay in comfortable old ways.
One thing remains clear, the right thing, is always the right thing………. always
but it is not always the easy thing.
It is ok to move forward through the fear, as long as we are moving towards God.
James 4:17”Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him, it is sin.
We often think of sin as doing the wrong thing, but maybe we need to adjust that thinking a bit to include sin as failing to do the right thing? Keep your eyes on the one you are trying to please, is it God or is it man?
Doing what is easy instead of what is right may make life easier and may lead to benefits in the short term but they will inevitably erode our integrity. You may not be applauded and praised for doing what is right, but make no mistake, you will be rewarded.
Through making the tough choices and choosing to trust that God will see you through you will gain strength. Let God help you do what is not easy but what is right.
In the end, the decision is yours ……………..and remember, you will become the person you chose to be.
Hope begins in the dark moments and moves to the dawn.
God’s grace is sufficient to see us through doing the right thing
Am I talking to myself………………you bet I am, but I am listening to God.

    Amen! Doing the right thing is not always doing the easy thing. What a different world we would live in if people would listen to the leadings of the Holy Spirit and have to courage to be obedient. It is easier to go our own way, but we are blessed when we choose to follow the Lord. Be blessed today and find a way to bless someone else.
