What Will You Choose?

What are you choosing today? Are you choosing life, or are you choosing death? Are you choosing joy, or are you choosing sorrow? Are you choosing peace, or are you choosing chaos?

You might say, “Well, you don’t know my circumstances. I can’t choose anything! I am a victim.” Yet, I have to disagree. You may not have control of your circumstances, but you do have control of YOU! You can choose how you handle those circumstances, and you can choose how you react to whatever you are facing.

Just as you cannot control or change the wind and the storms that come, you may not be able to control or change bad things from happening around you or even to you. However, you have complete control over your emotions and your actions. You can decide, right now, how you will react to those bad things. Will you “flip out,” refusing to be consoled or comforted? Will you become angry, lashing out in anger? Or will you take a deep breath, step back and assess the damages, and approach the situation with peace and wisdom? Will you handle the chaos with the kind of strength and grace that helps someone else along the way?

You have the ability to choose today. Choose life. Choose peace. Choose joy. Your choices not only impact those in that present situation, but they can impact others for generations to come.

What will your choices leave behind?

  1. Very True The Wheat and Tares, God tells us to choose to Love our enemies and even to do good to them but how many choose to hold onto bitterness and resentment and even seek revenge and so they are mixing poison for their enemy but drinking it themselves, it’s like Cancer it eats away all the goodness in them.

    With Halloween approaching we see even Christians choosing to celebrate evil when God tells us not to focus on the things of the Occult and He tells us this so we won’t be hurt not to squash our fun, we reap what we sow good and evil. Isaiah 5:20-21

    I very much appreciate The Wheat and Tares the Scripture below and it confirms the Truth in your Message.

    Philippians 4 ( 8- 9 ) Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do and the God of peace will be with you.

    Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.
