I Choose Christ

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."(Joshua 24:15, NKJV)

Some live for money.
Some live for fame.
Some live with heartache.
Others live in shame.
But I choose Christ.

Some live in mansions.
Some live in shacks.
Some live in leisure.
Others break their backs.
But I choose Christ.

I choose Christ,
for the life he gives.
I choose Christ,
for the freedom to live.
There are many choices in this life,
but I choose Christ.

Some folks are happy.
Some folks are sad.
Some folks are confused.
Other folks are mad.
But I choose Christ.

I choose the joy.
I choose the grace.
I choose the Christ.
I'll see His face.
Yes, I'll see His face!
I choose Christ!

I choose Christ,
for the life he gives.
I choose Christ,
for the freedom to live.
There are many choices in this life,
but I choose Christ.

Visiting from Spiritual Sundays; beautifully written! I choose Christ too! He never disappoints, he never forsakes, he keeps his promise, he keeps his word all the time! A wise choice to choose him indeed!

Once you have tasted of His goodness and experienced His love, there is no other choice, but Christ. He is my all in all, I am so blessed to be His.

Beautiful...

I've chosen Christ, too. And my life is full of joy -- even in hard places there's a quiet joy because of His presence. Awesome poem.

There is no other choice for me now that I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour back in 1975. It doesn't matter what goes on around me, I choose Christ. Thanks for a great post and God bless. Bobbi
