Josh 24:15. “…then choose today whom you will serve…as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”

Life is full of choices. What to wear, what to eat, where to go. Careers. Education. Spouse. Who to vote for. And so on. The most important choice I ever made, by far, was to follow Jesus. But there were consequential choices that followed – I was working at that time for a “defence” contracting company, programming computers to teach British Army gunners how to shoot, with the different types of ordnance available to them. The Holy Spirit started to nudge me, saying that perhaps this was not the ideal job for a new Christian! So I made a choice. To move on to a new job. And I believe that as I have made choices since then, God has been behind me, continuing to “nudge” me, keeping me on the right road, gently correcting steering malfunctions on the way! I don’t know what the future holds, but I can look back with deep gratitude to a father Who cares for me, trusting that He will continue to direct my paths, step by step, for the rest of my days.
