In Matt and Luke it tells us we choose whom we will serve, the God's of our ancestors (religions) or ourselves or the Lord God. The Lord looks upon the heart of a man or woman and knows the intentions behind their choices.
Isaiah 14 27 For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?
Don't let anyone tell you can't do something, when the Bible clearly says, "I can do all things through Christ!
Who I am in Christ matters more than what I think or what other people tell me about myself.
"start with Jesus, stay with Jesus, end with Jesus." great reminder to remember Jesus throughout the day even when things are tough!
