138. The Choice that Defines Us
Has all the things you have gone through define who you are? Has your past abuse shaped you to be abusive to others? Pastor Rick Warren stated in his blog on January 6, 2020 "what happens to you is not nearly as important as the way you choose to respond."
This is a difficult blog to write as I have struggled with the same choice. Deuteronomy 30:15-16 states "Today I am giving you a choice. You can choose life and success or death and disaster." Intellectually the choice always is life. What does it mean to choose life? I found out God gives me choices on a continual basis. What I do with those choices determines my character and who I am in Him.
If you can imagine two people facing the same difficulty, you may see one who will succeed and the other miss success and face a different outcome. The second one will be shaped by the consequences of their chosen outcome.
The same is absolutely true for you. How you choose will determine the person you are and what you become.
You are loved, in and through Him, your Father. Blessings, warrior bride!
