Response to 'Thought for Reflection'
Lest I have given any of my much loved FW friends the wrong impression with this article, let me clarify why I wrote it.
My husband was going through some of my deceased father's things last night and he came across a tiny book. This phrase was contained within, and I haven't been able to stop thinking of it.
We believe in Jesus Christ. I do. You do. Perfection will never be ours. I realize this more than you know. Yet this phrase reminded me that there are things I CAN do in relation to living out what I believe. I am with the Apostle Paul completely. The things I don't want to do, I do, the things I should, I don't.
I simply want to live my life in a manner that pleases Our Father. I don't want to deliberately do things I am able to avoid doing because I failed to listen and study the principles in the Bible. I undoubtably will never reach this goal of totally being able to live out what I believe, Jesus will probably never be able to fulfill his total plan for me because of ME. But this little phrase pointed out to me that I have to keep on truckin', so to speak.
I want my life to reflect more of Him, and less of me. That's all I was stating. I want to keep trying to live out what I believe, no matter how many times I trip and fall.
I am in control of whether I chose to listen and obey, and I am choosing to actively listen and obey more.
Thank you for your comments and keep them coming! I love all you people!
