“We cannot fully understand the relations of time and choice until we are beyond both.”
Life can be quite funny sometimes when you think of choosing how you want to live your life through your job, your education, what friends you hang out with, who you want to stay away from, or how you will learn from the choices you have made.
Choice has been an obvious word for me these past few weeks. The word I decided to cling to has been mixture of emotions… filled with worry, excitement, love, patience and, most importantly, time.
Time for for me to stop worrying.
Time for me to realize if my choices are fair and just.
Time for me to rejoice in tribulations.
Time for me to understand the choices other people make.
Time for me to accept the issues which heavily concealed my heart.
The list goes on…
In my life I make choices all the time and wishing there was more time in the day, or wishing there was less time for a particular moment.
One of the choices I took a lot of thought over is to understand eternity.
By understanding my choice of praying more for myself and most importantly, for others, brings me closer to God’s immense love and goodness where He blesses me daily. Understanding how much of an impact I can have for others by applying my faith through my actions and words in my everyday routine.
I choose to alternate my purpose by focusing on the light of Jesus Christ. His forgiveness for me on the cross brings me mercy + grace, and learning everyday to be a blessing and sharing the Gospel, the good news to anyone I meet. When you choose to alternate your route in life, it will be quite rewarding in the long run.
God gives us multiple opportunities to share our faith and He plants the mustard seed into someone’s heart. Although our choice to simply say, “Hey! Jesus loves you and died for you!” is a short sentence, however, it is quite rewarding to know when someone accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior, we are steps closer to have God’s warmest hugs wrapped around us and those we love are with us too. God chose to look at our hearts rather than our outside appearance. How refreshing is that?
Aside from our choices of clothing, makeup, what we drive, etc. God looks beyond the material aspect of earthly living, but focuses on the eternity aspect of our hearts loving Jesus, sharing the gospel and being the prime example of discipleship and God’s forgiveness on the cross.
When I think of choice, I immediately think of this Bible verse:
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
