So Many Choices! Your Delight is in the Lord!

While at Bikes Blues and BBQ we discovered a new love! It’s a magnificent yogurt place! You walk in and find fountain after fountain of flavors in the wall, all lined up.  Grab a paper cup and begin creating your concoction. After you have picked all the flavors you might want, you head towards the checkout where you will find add-ons galore! From Flavor buds to candy pieces to bites of other confectionary, it’s amazing! Of course at the checkout, if you’re not careful, as we were NOT, it might cost you $12.00 for two small containers of the amazing elixir.

Life is a lot like walking into an ice cream store - so much to choose from, so many ways to go and so many combinations to life. If we’re not careful we will over spend for that which does not satisfy. We consume all our hearts’ desire and then can still be left only with an empty pocketbook and an empty heart.  Although it seemed so good at the time, it may not have been what we wanted at all.

Oh beloved, are you wondering where your life has gone? Are you reeling from all the choices you made without consulting the One Who gave you life? There’s still time to look to the Lord. He says to you today, I love you! And because I love you I have a plan for your life. And because I have a plan for your life I will guide you and direct you the best way. If you will trust Me and give the everyday things to Me, I can make a beautiful creation out of it all.   Your life covered by My Spirit will always be worth the cost of letting Me lead you, for you will always end up where you need to be, making right choices, living right living and returning the love I have for you.

Go ahead and step into the store of His treasures – The Word of God! Nothing is held back from you beloved! Nothing is too expensive for you to procure for it is free to the one who seeks, free to the one who asks. God loves you and because of that He loves you give you every good and perfect gift! He’s for you and because of that He will watch over you all the days of your life. Now that’s something to live for!

Proverbs 2:11  Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.
Isaiah 55:1-3 “Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength?  Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen to me, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food.  “Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David.

James 1:17  Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.

Psalm 27:4  The one thing I ask of the LORD— the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in His Temple.

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Psalm 103:5  He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!


Psalm 16:5  LORD, You alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.

Psalm 23:5  You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.
