Today is a new day of opportunities. I can make connections with my inner self or go on doing the things I always do. What choice do I make today? It’s up to me. Yesterday is gone and today I’m in the moment called now. I have to make the choice to do something purposeful.
So I fire up my Kobo and click on “Jesus Calling” devotional. What I like about this e-book reading is that it opens up to the bookmarked page showing the last day I had been reading it. To my surprise I had missed a month as it showed it was April 24 and the current date was May 24! How could that be? Time had stopped and I missed out somehow. Journaling also brings me to reality when I realize that days had passed and I hadn’t written a word! What were the choices I had made in days past?
The bookmarked date is still there and Jesus is calling but I have not picked up. The still small voice had been there all along so I have no excuse. I will not take any guilt as there is freedom in Christ.
That day I read about ‘Do Not Long for the Absence of Problems’ as my mind seems preoccupied with the stresses of the day. Just what I had been thinking about…I don’t want any more problems! So I make a choice that just for a day I will not worry. I will go on living in pleasures regardless of trouble that may be around the bend. I choose to be happy. How can that be? Troubles will follow as surely as the storm clouds blanket the sky.
I make the choice to ask God to equip me to handle any problems that I may encounter that day. Allow me to bathe in your Presence is what I ask. The pressures of life are still there, but the anguish of my soul is overcome with His peace.
This was one choice I made along the way!
