Most of the time, we get carried away by daily life, it’s busyness, the realities of living in current times, and I guess if we’re honest it’s the same for most of us. There are events in life that we just can’t control, that we have to just live through. A close friend has just lost his father unexpectedly, he didn’t want that to happen, in fact it was the last thing he wanted to happen.
The challenge is to choose how to react when living through challenging times.
As humans we do have a God given gift to make choices about ourselves.
Author Stephen Covey says it this way…
“Between stimulus and response is our greatest power – the freedom to choose”
I’m going through a fair amount of change and challenge in my own life at present. I feel myself being swept along, and in some ways, I’m letting it define me. It’s time to remember to choose my response.
So I today and each day I choose to…
…believe that God’s plan for my life is better than the one that I can create for myself.
…be more intentional with my time, energy & resources, to not let life and time fritter away.
…believe the best about the people around me.
right it’s time to get moving.
