The focus of Heart Choices is ...your day to day choices determine what your tomorrows will become. And that impacts body, mind and spirit. I've found that it's good for me to make the choice to participate because it exercises my mind. How's that for burning off calories? Yeah, I wish.
Today we welcome our guest hostess, Jennifer of Scraps and Snippets. Here's Jennifer's choice of quote for this week:
I think it helps to remember who God is. He is sovereign, the creator, knows everything, sees everything (yes, everything), is perfect love, full of grace and is perfectly holy. And I question whether He knows what's best for me?
I believe it comes down to dealing with our flesh. When you become a Christian, your spirit is alive but you still have to deal with your flesh. It doesn't go away this side of eternity. One day but not yet. And in the meantime ...we have moment by moment choices to make.
Satisfy the flesh or live by the Spirit?
When we live by the Spirit and abide in Christ, He leads us to His best for us.
When we satisfy our flesh, we do what feels good or what we want now instead of ...God's best.
It comes down to a matter of trust. Do you believe God has your best interests at heart? Or do you think you know better because who can you really trust?
I encourage you to take the time to link to Scraps and Snippets to find other participating blog posts on this quote.
