We all have them; Times when we must choose. A moment where the choice we make defines our future.
For me, it was seven years ago. I had been going about my life and living big. It was good! I had a beach house for the summer. Traveled all over the United States. Searching for “Mr. Right”. Sure I was divorced and raising a child alone, but I was filling that pain with stuff. Places, people….fun.
One regular day, I say regular day because, that is usually how it is. We are just living life and God speaks or in my case intervenes.
I was walking to the kitchen and heard “I AM “ not playing with you anymore, little girl. I want you to allow me into all areas of your life.
I gasped! Aaaah! It stopped me in my tracks. Like when a parent grabs your arm and looks into your eyes and says, “Stop it”.
He got my attention. God speaks however we listen. He had my attention. I knew enough ABOUT God to listen.
If you noticed all the “I’s” above. I had it all figured out. There is a fine line between EGO and pride verses confident in Him. God wants us to have self-confidence. But the “I” needed to be in Him. It’s in Him that I can do all things, with HIS strength, deposited in me. (Eph. 1:4, Phil. 4:13).
That day was a defining moment for my eternity.
We all have it. We choose to be for him or against Him.
Joshua 24:14 says: “choose this day whom you will serve”.
Over the next seven years, I learned the slight difference between “self confidence” and self-confidence in and thru Him.
I have a relationship with my Father today. I don’t just know about Him; I know Him. God has placed eternity in our hearts and nothing under the sun satisfies, BUT GOD!
That defining moment changed my life.
