A Poem by Ronald Whitwam
"Which Master?"

"Hurry up little one, there is not much time left for you to make your Big Choice! No, you cannot possibly hold onto both at the same time. Either you will hate the one, and love the other; or else you will hold to the one, and despise the other. (Mt. 6:24)

You may either keep the one you took for yourself and continue trying to make it work, or you must choose to exchange it for the one I planned for you to have in the first place!

Yes, it does mean letting go of the old familiar one, but that one has given you nothing but grief and never has met your needs. In fact, it is what has kept you from fulfilling your purpose all along and has pulled you in the direction of calamity.

When will you see that the evil one, who convinced you to take it, has lied to you about it being good for you? Why do you cling to it so and not chose the one I offer now, when I promise I will make it work for you?

Look little one; I have already done everything for you. I made the Plan for you. I paid the very high cost for you. I offer the choice to you. Now it is your Big Choice to make, to submit your will to me and have life anew."

John 10:10 I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Revelation 22:17 And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
