My ex-father-in-law just died. I have so many emotions. I have been praying. I was married in that family some odd 13 years. The man is the grandpa of my kids.
In my lazy, sideways communicating with people, I want to “friend” my ex and his family, on Facebook, and give condolences. This well educated man influenced his children and mine. He was active, ran marathons, and even wrote (and published) some books.
Coming from my Christ-centered thoughts, and there are many, I’m quoting Deuteronomy 30: 15-20. “See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to Him, and to keep His commands, decrees, and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day, that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to His voice, and hold fast to Him. For the Lord is your life, and He will give you many years in the land He swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
Choose life. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.Choose to follow Him and have life more abundantly. (John 10;10)
I care about you, my followers……..
