Choose!

A song & video by my brother David Buie.

I am creating a very brief blog post today due to personal reasons and personal obligations. I hope this song reminds you of the time and place you chose Jesus as your Savior. If you have a moment, leave a response and share when you decided to follow Christ.

I made this life changing choice during a youth retreat around age 16. I believe it was the month of June. After several teachers in church and in school as well as parents and a few friends, I made this decision for myself. As a preacher’s kid, I grew up in a Christian home. Knowing about God, The Bible, and Jesus were as common as breathing in my family. ๐Ÿ™‚ This was and is a blessing! But, choosing to make Jesus my own friend and savior was something my parents taught us is something that everyone must decide on their own at some point in life.

Even being over 5o years old now, this is still the greatest choice and the greatest joy in my life. What about you?

  1. I love this. I choose Christ every day. I chose Him when I was young, but after stumbles, have had to consistently reaffirm that choice. Now I strive daily to walk in Him!

  2. I donโ€™t remember the date but it was at Riverside Baptist Church in Windsor Ont. Canada while I was in elementary school. And I have followed Him since. He has never disappointed me. Thanks for helping me remember.

  3. You are welcome Yvonne! ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a great time remembering my own decision to follow Jesus. It’s nice to go back and reflect on chooses we made when we were younger. I think it helps us keep going in the present. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. My story is quite lengthy but in short, I chose to trust and follow Jesus at age 17. I grew up without my father. His absence and neglect drove me to look for love in all the wrong places. It was after a battle with drugs and alcohol, and the feeling of worthless that I found my true Father in Heaven. I have never gone back to that old life. I have grown leaps and blinds in my love and faith in Jesus. I chose him then and I choose him still. Always and forever!
