Make the Choice

Not one person bullied me into accepting God into my heart. It was a choice I made all on my own.

For years I lived life knowing God but never having a relationship with Him, never fully grasping all the amazing gifts He has to offer.

Can you imagine if everyday for all those years God bullied me for not making the choice to accept His gifts? If he wrote on my social media post calling me an idiot for not choosing Him, or if He text me at 1am telling me how big of a mistake I was making with my life.

Thankfully I serve an all loving God who has NEVER hurt me for not always making the choices in life that He wanted for me.

Instead He continued to pour out His love, compassion and forgiveness for me. And patiently wait for my acceptance.

There’s a HUGE lesson in this. How many of you have witnessed “Karen” on social media this year? Or how many have accidentally slumped to “Karen’s” level this year? Whoops!

People are CONSTANTLY attacking each other on SM these days for making different choices then they ‘feel’ they should be making in life.

Listen up!!!! Saying horrible, disgusting things to someone you don’t agree with will NEVER EVER change that person’s mind. EVER!

By doing this you are only giving that person more reason to push your ideas and opinions away.

So next time you are placed in the position to put a little more hate out into an already hateful world I ask you to PLEASE stop, and behave more like the example God shows us every single day.

He has never hated you or I  for not choosing Him, he’s only continued to show us love and acceptance. Even when we don’t make the choices He wants for us.

If you truly want to change someones mind just continue on living your life! Then maybe just maybe one day they’ll come to you tired and miserable and ask “what are you doing differently?” And you’ll be waiting for that day with open arms ready to help.

Hello and Welcome to my page! My name is Ashley, I am a stay at home mom of two beautiful littles Rylee and Kreed. My husband and I started Our Love Story all the way back in the 4th grade. It was a messy ride at times until about 3 years ago. After going through troubled waters we decided to rebuild our entire life on the foundation of Christ. Since then we have been created a beautiful life together. We enjoy working on our little farm house, traveling and camping with our kids and coming up with unique ways to keep on dating all these years later. We have built this life by simply accepting God's grace. I can't wait to share our story with you.
