My Decision

Welcome to another inspiring guest post by my hubby, Grandpa.  You can also download his latest book, Will I Be in Heaven,  in PDF form for FREE!  Enjoy.

I must share with you that I have been a Christian for many years, but like many of you, I haven’t always been the best example of a Christian. For many years, although saved, I chose to do things my way and the world’s way which led to being frustrated and unfulfilled – sound familiar?  A few years ago the Lord brought that to my attention, and I was face to face with Him. It was so real. I had a decision to make – the same one many of you need to make. My decision was  either I was going to make Jesus Lord of my life, or I wasn’t.

I believe there are many Christians in the same boat I was in – saved but not committed and as such, not content. But, thank God I chose to not only have Jesus as my Savior but make Him Lord of my life. Since then I have experienced the peace and joy and contentment that I and everyone else desires. Friend, that is the answer to get to where you want to be from wherever you are.

Just wanted to share my favorite versus with you.

My Decision

As time goes on I hope to share with you how the Lord is working in my life, and how He can work in yours as well.

Today I want to introduce you to two people that have taught me more from God’s word in the last four or five years than I learned in the previous sixty years, although I was in church. They are both on television and on several of the Christian networks.

The first is Joseph Prince who is the pastor of New Creation church in Singapore. What I have learned from him mostly is who I am in Christ, a clear understanding of living by grace and not the law, and keeping my focus on Jesus rather than myself.

The second is Les Feldick who is a layman farmer and rancher who teaches the Bible in a very easy to understand way. What he has helped me with the most, other than a more clear overall understanding of God’s word, is how to rightly divide the word as in 2 Timothy 2:15, and how to not pour all of God’s word into a blender and pour it out. Listen to them both and let me know what you think – I know you will be blessed.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth – Timothy 2:15

Do you have someone or  a pastor you follow and love to learn from?  Has the Lord worked in your life?

Blessings to all,

Will I Be In Heaven


  1. I think you’re right. Many of us spend too many years saved but not living the abundant life promised to us. It’s our own disobedience that is the barrier. God is waiting for us to make Him Lord. Thank you for the reminder to daily pick up the cross of Jesus and follow Him. He is worth it! Abundance is worth it!

    1. Thanks Kim for those kind words. I just wish that I had made Jesus Lord earlier in my life and given Him those more productive years. But I do know that God can use us regardless of what age we surrender to His “Lordship.” God bless you and your family. Grandpa

  2. This was such a refreshing article. It is amazing how when the gospel is presented in love, truth and grace, it can totally transform our lives. I love Joseph Prince. He is such a dynamic and insightful teacher. I have not heard of Les but will now look him up. Have you heard of Bill Johnson from Bethel Church in Redding California? He is another great preacher of the gospel. Thank you for sharing your insight and testimony. Blessings to you.

    1. Blessings to you too Carmen. I am so glad that this article touched you in some way. Sharing with each other is a wonderful way to grow in the Lord. As you well know Joseph Prince is a topical pastor/teacher and Les Feldick, as you will see, is an expository teacher with a classroom setting. Grandpa

  3. I must admit to being in this area now. There are certain parts of life where it was easy to give everything to Jesus and there are other areas that I need to give Him again and again, because I sometimes think I can do better then He can What a sad thought! I think as I age I learn how much easier it is to trust Him with everything. It is a process though.

    1. You are so right Rebekah! It is a process of growing as Christians and it doesn’t happen overnight. When we give it all up to Him, and stop trying to do things from the flesh (works), we will be amazed at how much we change (grow). I hope you will download my free book offer that is in this post, WILL I BE IN HEAVEN. Let me also suggest that you get my book WEAR THE WOOL, SHINE THE SHOES. This book really goes into detail about the very things you are talking about. You can find the link in my author bio above. If you would like more information please use the contact form at the top of the page.
      God bless you, Grandpa

  4. Thank you for sharing & you are right, we aren’t always the best example. We must get back on the right path. Thank goodness He is forgiving! We attend church at LifeChurch & they are also online.
    Pinning. Thanks for linking up at the Bloggers Brags Weekly Pinterest Party

  5. I have definitely had pastors who have impacted my life. In college, our associate youth pastor really helped me by including me in a youth Bible study he and his wife hosted at their house. I appreciated the inspirational words!

    1. Thanks for the kind words. The only way we can know we are fed the truth is by knowing the word according to 2 Timothy 2:15. God Bless You

  6. You know I have been in the same path. The last two years God has shown me so much more. I was missing. I was listening and was deceived. I learned the truth when I dug in and read the Bible on my own and not waited to be given fast food from the pulpit. Thanks for linking at Pintastic Pinteresting Party!

    1. I just loved your phrase, “fast food from the pulpit.” Thats why it is so important that we learn the word ourselves and not from others – 2 Timothy 2:15. You sound like me, not wanting the word put in a blender and poured out. Thanks for sharing, Grandpa

  7. What a great article and testimony. It is so true, there are so many sitting in church each week who believe in Christ, but do not follow Him. The second part is so essential!! I pray you have a blessed Easter. Thank you for stopping by this week to comment.

    1. You are so right. The Christian life isn’t once a week on Sunday. It’s everyday. It isn’t a part of our life. It is our life. Thanks for sharing, grandpa

  8. This is great, such truth and encouragement for others who are looking for some support from other believers

    Thank you for sharing with Salt & Light this week


    1. Great words. We are to encourage each other, lift each other up, share our burdens, etc. Sounds like we’ve read the same “BOOK“. God bless, Grandpa

  9. Thanks Grandpa for sharing these wise reminders to remember our faith. As a mom of 3 young boys, they quickly remind me to lead by example, especially when I see one of my habits reflected in them. Happy Easter to you and Tammy and thanks for sharing with #smallvictoriessunday.

    1. Thank you for the comment. We do have to be careful of what we do, because our children will do much more of what we do and much less of what we say! I say Happy Easter to you too even though this is the day after. We as Christians can actually celebrate Easter everyday. Praise the Lord. Grandpa
