Guatemala is filled with old world beauty giving off a sense of charm, unique to its surroundings. The door pictured here at our hotel is one of several in the city. Weathered, ponder worthy of the stories it could tell of the people that passed through or the events witnessed throughout the years. Our choose daily theme brings us a reminder that our choices can be like picking a door to walk through. You may not know what’s on the other side or what kind of turn your life could take when we are careless with our choices. With a step to go on this side of a door / a choice, our journey can take us around a dangerous corner, or a road filled with consequences of regret. However, with Jesus leading the way our decision making is deferred. The living and active Christ in us, through the power of the Spirit, leaves the daily decisions we need to make in His hands. Jesus said in Revelation 3:20 He is standing at the door awaiting our knock, inviting us beyond the door into a life-long friendship with Him. That is a door always available but only accessible when we make the daily wise choice to enter.
Our team had another amazing day doing VBS outreach in two neighborhoods. We’ve been teaching foundations of the gospel and reinforcing those concepts with a braided wrist band craft representing the coming of Jesus, the death of Jesus and the return of Jesus. Adios for today!
