“…it’s important to remember that while we don’t always get what we want, we always get what we choose.” ~John Maxwell in The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth
We all have the power of choice. We get to choose our actions, our responses, our attitudes, and in most cases, our direction and which dreams we will follow.
There are big choices in life. You can choose to stay in debt or budget your money to get out of debt. You can choose to change jobs or continue in your current employment. From a move to another city to how to educate your children to which church to attend, you get to choose.
Maybe the choices you face today are not as life changing as those mentioned above, yet you still get to make many choices.
You can choose…
…a grateful or complaining spirit
…to “stop and smell the roses” or rush through the day
…love and respect for your husband or apathy and disrespect
…to give your children a smile or a weary sigh
…an act of generosity or a selfish heart
…to seize the moments of the day or let them waste away
…to live in the power of Christ or struggle through on your own
What will you choose today?
