Life is a continual process of making choices . . . daily and moment by moment. The choices we make are influenced by so many things . . . family background . . . financial abilities/inabilities . . . pop culture / media inputs . . . crisis points in life . . . etc. Many "solutions" to life challenges and "'things" that will make us happy are offered from all directions. You and I can find Jesus @ the center of those choices that are most important . . . Only He can provide the "assured" way to "life that works . . . life that lasts"
We have the opportunity to see God @ work in people all around us . . . in our neighborhood . . . at work . . . family relationships . . . Jesus gave us insight when He said, "My Father is always at his work, to this very day, and I too am working." He showed His disciples how to Look . . . Listen . . . & Join the Father in His constant working all around us. Hear the "today" stories and practical ways where we can . . . Look & see Him @ work around us . . . Listen for those indicators in those around us &. . . Join our Father in what He is doing . . . drawing people to HImself
Life includes many opportunities for uncertainty . . . but we have the opportunity to embrace the reality of God's work in our lives. He is working even when we don't see it at the time. Terry shared some powerful examples in her life of how God showed Himself active in her life and in the people she ministers to. The Love of God that overcomes barriers when sharing Jesus with Muslims . . . our "Good Good Father" and His Love overcomes all fears because we are . . . His children.
Life is full of choices . . . we live in the outcomes of our personal choices. Will we make our choices based on "pop culture" norms . . . what society says is right . . . popular . . . acceptable? Will fear of man . . . fear of the unknown . . . fear of failure . . . drive our choices? Jesus shows us . . . the way forward is always better when our choices are made in light of God's ways . . . His purpose for our life. We are made for His ways . . . not this worlds ways. Wise choices lead to life that lasts . . . life that "works"!!!
