Always a Price

There is always a price for everything we do. And, it's a different price for different souls, at different times.
Sometimes the "cost" isn't made clear until years down the road. But one thing is clear, the power of choice 
now rests with us. As we walk with The Lord and desire more of His presence we become sensitized to The 
Holy Spirit. We become keenly aware of things that are harmful to spiritual life. It becomes important to rightly
choose what we "see" and "hear" because we literally take it into our being.  Our eyes are truly the 
windows to our souls, and likewise our ears.  What we choose to see and listen to, ends up residing 
within us and will ultimately find some type of expression. 

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Prov. 4.24)

"For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light. (Luke 8:17

The things of the world are as weights that keep us from running the race of The High Calling in Christ.
There is a day dawning when everything will be revealed. Ultimately what resides within our hearts
will be known. We can fill that place with things from this life or we can surrender all to The Lord
and become an expression of His Life. In Revelations the overcomer is as a "sea of glass". A life that
has become a transparent expression of His Life. Guard your heart each day with all diligence.
It is from the abundance (what we allow in) of the heart that the mouth speaks. It is the very essence
of who we are. All that is of eternal value flows from within our spirit as love that can fill our hearts
with His Life. All that the enemy would seek to do comes from without. We choose each day to fill
our hearts with things of the spirit realm or things of the natural realm. Temporary things or Eternal things. 
Light or darkness....Life or death.....May we choose Life…

Matthew 6:22-23
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.                                                        23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness,
how great is that darkness!
