Commit Yourself Today to the Lord

As I listen to some wonderful gospel music and do my daily reading, I am reminded of the words of Joshua. 

There comes a time in our lives that we need to reaffirm our faith and commit ourselves to serving the Lord wholeheartedly. Sometimes we get sidetracked and start worshiping worldly things. They become our gods and we move away from the one true, living, loving God who gave us His son as our atonement sacrifice to wash away our sins.
Joshua 24:14-15 New Living Translation (NLT)
14 “So fear the Lord and serve him wholeheartedly. Put away forever the idols your ancestors worshiped when they lived beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord alone. 15 But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”

No matter what happens to me, I will continue to serve the Lord. He is my rock, my fortress and my shield. As I face the unknown, I shall not cower in fear.
