I made a DECISION almost 30 years ago
that has changed my life.
At times this DECISION has caused such conflict
with those who haven't made the same DECISION.
Was it the RIGHT DECISION?
I wonder if JESUS ever questioned whether HE made the right
DECISION the moment HE was born
in a stinky stable & swaddled in rags.
I know JESUS is JESUS & HE did what HE did
because HE is JESUS,
but JESUS did feel every emotion common to man.
HE knows rejection.
HE knows temptation.
HE knows hurt & pain.
HE knows crucifixion.
But the moment HE hung on the cross
with the blood dripping on HIS brows
HE uttered the words
"IT IS FINISHED"~
there was no turning back for HIM
which meant that there is no turning back
for me & you & everyone else who
claims the name of JESUS for our very own.
Oh conflicts arise.
But I will never question my DECISION that I made that one moment in time
that has changed my life forever & ever & ever & beyond that.
For at the moment JESUS rose from the dead
HE DID what HE DID
so we will never ever ever ever
have to take the cruel punishment & payment
that JESUS took on the cross
the moment HE became all of our sin
& crucified it all
so that we can live forever & ever & ever & ever & beyond that
with HIM in PERFECT eternity.
Even though some disagree with me & maybe some disagree with you
about the choice you made to
conflicts will continue,
but there will be no conflict
when we come before our
when this life here is finished
welcome us with open arms
and then REAL LIFE will begin
as it was intended to be in the first place.
"And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
'Look! GOD'S dwelling place is now among the people, and HE will dwell with them.
They will be HIS people, and GOD HIMSELF will be with them and be their GOD.
‘HE will wipe every tear from their eyes.
There will be no more death
or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.'
HE who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!'"*
Oh because what HE says is so TRUE~
"HE said to me: 'It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.
Those who are victorious will inherit all this,
and I will be their GOD and they will be MY children"* (Revelation 21)
