Father says... CHOOSE THIS DAY WHO

My day has been hectic so far.. not bad, just wild.  It's not unusual.  I operate in that realm and deal with stress pretty well... for the most part.

Yet, in having to navigate some difficult things this morning a half dozen times a choice had to be made.  Not a bad choice, a choice.  It would have been easier to leave it alone, let it mature and make a choice later.  Except that doesn't solve anything.

I was reminded of this truth:

Your life is a result of the choices you make If you don't like your life, it's time to start making better choices

This is not condemnation, but many people who struggle in life do so because of choices they make or let be made for them by default.  That is not God's best for any of us.  He wants us to hear from Him and choose. Choose to do what is right not only in your own eyes but in the eyes of the one who made you.  Much harm comes to the one who makes choices for evil.  

There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.  Proverbs 14:12

If confusion exists about what is the right thing to do, then ask the question, "How shall we then live"?  It's a critical question and one that requires an excellent answer.  Here are a few choices I am faced with and try to do right.

  • IF I am able to leverage money in places other than what was agreed, is that a blessing or a bad choice?

  • If I am in a place at a time where frankly I know no good thing is likely to happen, is that a choice of privilege or is that a bad decision?

  • If I can get by with doing less, and I choose to, and get let go.. was that a good choice?

Once more with a little more insight:

Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.

Robert Foster Bennett

Maybe that's why I heard so clearly, CHOOSE THIS DAY.. who will you serve?
