Choosing God

Just wanted to share a song that I enjoyed at our Friday night home gathering:

“Dearest Lord, I come;
This is now my prayer,
Keep me open to You,
May I always love You.

Lord, I love You more today,
So much more than yesterday;
Lord, I need You, Lord, I love You.
Now that the choice is mine,
Lord, I still choose You;
Though the paths be not marked,
I’m still trusting in You.”

There’s more to the song but I really appreciated what a brother at the gathering shared about verse number 2.

“Now that the choice is mine,
Lord, I still choose You.”
As college students we now have so much freedom and we can make a lot of our own choices. But this verse touched me because I have a choice to make: is God going to be the God of my parents or is God going to be my God? We are free to do anything we want, we are free to make our own choices, and for me, my choice is to choose God. During my college years as I am getting an education, my choice is not for myself but for God.
