Purposeful Decisions

I took this cover photo picture just a few months after my daughter Ashley passed away December 24, 2013. It’s always been dear to my heart. The Cross stands strong, reminding me of the hope we have in Jesus. The clouds symbolize an angel wing; bringing me peace that my daughter is with our Savior. I’ve been asked by Facebook repeatedly to update my cover photo. I have ignored every request. As I reflect on these facts this morning, I am reminded how purposeful we must be in our daily decision making. The world as we know it, can push us. We must always analyze our actions and our purpose; seeking our Heavenly Father continuously. Every day we are faced with decisions. How are you going about that decision making process? Are you in prayer every morning before you even begin the tasks of the day? Are you taking the time to whisper prayers throughout the day, each time you are faced with a decision that needs processed through? Remember the Cross. Jesus gave us a way to The Father. We have a Savior that walks with us and lives within us. We must recognize the need to seek Him. We must remember that God loves us and wants the best for us. This world is not our permanent home. We are here momentarily. Let’s keep our focus on seeking a more intimate relationship with Jesus, so that we might know His peace. We are blessed to be given that gift. Embrace this day and each day forward, thanking God for His eternal love and peace that surpasses all understanding.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭

God is with us.
