Options and Choices

These words popped up in my spirit strongly this morning after listening to a message that i had to check the meaning and found they both had each other as synonyms. .. interesting.. I have found out that the world we live in has given us many options to living life.. everything has options , little wonder our generation is faced with a lot of battle of choices.. Many people have the choice of doing marriage the cultural way, the modern way or biblical way.. We have this options in how we relate with ourselves, do life , parenting and many other things we do.. I have come to realise that those days.. things were either in black and white so you have to choose between black or white.. good or evil. . You choose one or the other but now.. you have white, black , grey, off white, off black, whity-grey and yet to be discovered mix of both colours and we wonder why people find it hard to make choices.. Today I want us to sit and think through our lives.. what options do you have and what choices are you making in ;

1. Your life; spiritually, physically, intellectually, financially, health wise etc.

2. Marriage; are you intentional about enjoying your marriage? Are you doing marriage your way? Are you doing marriage culturally? Biblically or the modern way?

3. Parenting; How are you doing this? Culturally? Modern or biblically?

4. Relationship with others? What are your options.. are you a blessing to others in every way or a pain to them? Or you are in between? Lol I saw this interesting message in God's words and decided to add it here to buttress my points on the options we have and choices to make.. "GOD'S WORD® Translation I call on heaven and earth as witnesses today that I have offered you life or death, blessings or curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants will live" .. So many areas of our lives that we are faced with options and need to make choices .. I pray today you will choose options that will help you make progress in every area of your life.. Here are choices in various areas with all the options I have considered.... I Bridget Elesin have chosen to live for God and Him alone.. I have the options to follow other gods but I choose to follow God through Jesus Christ. I have chosen to have the mind of Christ, so I live life like Christ. I have chosen to do marriage God's way which is the biblical way of male and female loving and living life to the glory of God that instituted marriage. I have chosen to do marriage as a team and enjoy my marriage more than I will endure it.. If there is need for endurance, we will endure and make progress together.. I have chosen to raise godly seeds that will live according to the dictate of God's words.. children that are made for signs and wonders according to God's words I have chosen to learn and invest in my knowledge in every way.. I have chosen to ensure I work on my character daily and live a progressive life in every way.. I have chosen to inspire, encourage and help people to live their best life always.. I have chosen to see good in others and help them connect with those that can help them live that "best life " they desire I have chosen to pray people up than tear them down.. I have chosen to show people kindness in every way and will do my best to love the unlovable just like Christ did.. yes.. I have chosen not to cast my pearls before swines as well.. I have the wisdom of God to discern and I have chosen to use that wisdom to know that not everyone is around me to do me good and so I must love and help wisely. I have chosen to live, love and do life God's way.. So what options do you have and what choices will you make today and the remaining days of your life .. remember to choose the option that will bring life and not death. Selah!!! @BridgetElesin
