Deciding In Advance

God and I have been doing some wrestling. Apparently, there are some things I still need to learn (go figure!)

I have been thinking lately about a lot of "past things", and He is showing me their relevance to my current life. Some of the things we're looking at took place during that period of my life when I was more focused on the world than on God. Not my best moment in time, but a part of my story none-the-less.

So, I'm thinking, He's teaching and all this STUFF is whirling around in my head. I can ignore it, I know... but it won't be healed until He and I sort through it.... together. So together we walk through my life, thinking, teaching, healing.

"Decide in Advance", the instructor said. I was at my MMA class, and he was explaining discipline and decision making. "Decide in Advance" and then there is no question when the time comes. It can be done with exercise, with food choices, with worldly choices.

His words resonated with me.

I will Decide in Advance.

I will Decide to follow Him.

I will also Decide to accept the grace that He freely offers.
