One thing is for sure-I’m not used to writing a blogpost every single day. Regardless of that fact, my heart is turning towards gratefulness even when I’ve forgotten to write.
Yesterday was Election Day. I forgot to write but my heart was feeling thankful for freedoms in my life. The freedom to vote, yes, but in general, the freedom to choose given to me by my Creator God.
God could have created me with a predetermined path of only doing what God wanted me to do. Instead, when the Trinity decided to make male and female, they decided to give us free will. God didn’t want mere puppets. God wanted created people to choose to love and follow God. The Creator wanted a relationship with me, with each of us.
So, I’m grateful for choices and freedoms given me to choose. I chose God when I was a child and have made definitive choices to follow Christ and the Spirit several specific times in my life, as well as choosing Love every day as much as I can in my human weaknesses.
I pray I never take all my freedoms for granted.
