Have you ever had to make a life or death decision? It only takes seconds to cause the best or the worst of circumstances to happen. In my story, “Choose Life” from the book Trilogy of Hope, the main character, Angie Grier, is faced with tough decisions as a wife, mother, and friend. Each decision has the power to change her life. Though not everything is as simple as black and white, according to the Bible there are only two choices, life and death: “I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your children shall live” (Deuteronomy 30:19). Without giving away all of the story, Angie comes to a point where her choice will either strengthen her family or de-stroy it: life or death. She could follow her lust (death) or her truth (life).
My friend, you, like Angie, possess the greatest power on earth: the power to choose. People use this power for the good of others or to ruin lives, including their own. Who is responsible for handing us such control? God in His incomprehensible wisdom, decided to give us such power and we could choose to accept or reject Him. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were the first humans to use it. With their choice came the most profound change in the history of the uni-verse: the crushing Fall of mankind. They chose death for all of us.
Our loving Creator does not leave us there. He came in the form of a man to make a way back to life through His death on the Cross. We are still faced with only two choices: Death (separation from God forever) or Life (eternal union with God). I have chosen to spend now and eternity living with my God. The power is in your hands, not only for your life here on earth, but for your eternity.
If you need help with these truths, don’t hesitate to write me. I live to serve.
