Just a Thought

Something I've been learning lately...

Often we find ourselves trying to choose between "good" and "bad"...but as Christians we should also consider what is "good" and what is "best".  Sometimes although we're on the right path, we need to make sure it's the best path.  God wants the very best for us.  When we only try half-heartedly to be the person that He wants us to be, we might be doing the right things but not with the right attitudes or motives.  We need to choose and long for God's best...this might mean sacrifice and hardship, but God will be with us, holding our hand all the way.

All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.
1 Corinthians 10:23 (NKJV)

Just a short post today...

Don't forget to check out the giveaway (see last post)!  


  1. I agree with this! Great post!

  2. Amen. Thank-You for writing this post. It made me feel a whole lot better. I've been doing some really bad things lately that I know I shouldn't be doing. I've tried to steer away from Satan to God and it's hard to stop something after you've already started. no, i'm not smoking or anything like that, but i'm still saying some bad things. hopefully, my bible camp next week will beat those devil-like words out of me. I hate when I say them, I've just gotten used to hearing them, so, I say them, and mutter them when I'm mad. I know it's wrong, and I know God has forgiven me. But they're things I will never be able to take back. And eventually, I will have to face my consequence. But I'm willing to do that if that means that I'll stay on the best path, not the good path with God. Please trust me that I'll try to make things right again Klarabelle. And please pray for me.

    1. Meena, thank you for opening your heart and sharing your struggles. I will most certainly be praying for you. I understand what you're going through...when I blogged the above post I was thinking about a similar circumstance in my own life that was only recently resolved, and I know how hard it is to get back on the best path even when we know we are forgiven and we know that God will help us do what is right. But I am so thankful God is there for us and will never leave us, and that He has also given us brothers and sisters in Christ to strengthen and uplift us. Anyway, I will be praying for you. Love you.
      In Christ,
      Kara :)
