Half-hearted = Half-satisfied=Dissatisfied!


Half-hearted anything is almost always dissatisfying!  The stories of discontent and disappointment that are the result of a divided heart or unresolved commitment are numerous.  It’s important to make up your mind about which direction you’re going to go – which road you’re going to take – how you’re going to live your life.

That’s especially true when it comes to your relationship to God!  I had to face it one day – was I going to live for the Lord with all my heart and follow His word or divide up my loyalties between self, sin and parttime Christianity?  Would I be a follower of Jesus and try to live my own way at the same time?  Would I follow the teaching of Scripture or the latest, ego-driven, self-satisfying, self-help manual.  I had to decide… and I’m glad I did!

I thought about that today as I read these words from Psalm 119 during “coffee with the Lord” …

“I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me.  I cling to your testimonies, O Lord.  Let me not be put to shame!” (from Psalm 119:30-31)

I remember the day I decided!  I told the Lord and myself, “Here goes!  I am going to live for God with all my heart!  No turning back!  ‘Let me not be put to shame!’”

It’s been worth it!  One of the best and wisest decisions I ever made.  No regrets!
