Bigger Moving Picture -Freewill

If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.

We have choices to make about everything.

Some have said, “nothing is certain but death and taxes.” Well, if you don’t pay taxes the consequences is imprisonment, if you are caught;  but DEATH, now THAT is another story,  we have absolutely no control over. We are human. We are mortal and we all come to a point a facing death. However, while we are alive each of us have an opportunity to exercise our freewill.

This song is not only a GREAT musical ride but it is the bear honest truth, although some people don’t want to acknowledge this, everyone has their “God given” opportunity to express their own free will.

The Bible is really clear for us on the outcome of living according to our will rather than God’s will but the CHOICE is still ours. He gives us that. He even let’s us decide if we believe Him or not.

God didn’t create us to be puppets on a string. What kind of love and relationship is admirable when one of the parties is made or forced or just created automatically to love the other?

That is pretty much a one sided relationship!

God wants us to choose, and choose wisely…

With that being said, enjoy this old favorite and consider how you are using your freewill:

Here are the lyrics to “Freewill”:

There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance
A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance

A planet of play things
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive
‘The stars aren’t aligned
Or the gods are malign…’
Blame is better to give than receive

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that’s clear
I will choose freewill

There are those who think
That they were dealt a losing hand
The cards were stacked against them
They weren’t born in Lotusland

All preordained
A prisoner in chains
A victim of venomous fate
Kicked in the face
You can’t pray for a place
In heaven’s unearthly estate

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that’s clear
I will choose freewill

Each of us
A cell of awareness
Imperfect and incomplete
Genetic blends
With uncertain ends
On a fortune hunt that’s far too fleet

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that’s clear
I will choose freewill


Pressing On,

    1. Amen! when it comes to evangelism i realized i let Christ shine in me, live for His will and THAT “living proof” of His redemption and regeneration of my life is all Christ asks of me when spreading HIS gospel. His grace is enough, HIS love truly, never fails!
