Look Before You Leap

Although it’s an awesome responsibility (and I have no idea what God was thinking when He gave us choice) but our privilege to choose makes it our decision to rejoice, or not to rejoice. To celebrate, or not to celebrate. To pout, to indulge in self-pity, to walk in anger, or to walk in the hurt someone else has caused, to walk in love, or disappointment, or frustration, to walk in resentment, or peace, or to walk with purpose. To respond to God, or not to - these are all our choices to make. We can’t not make a decision. We decide if we get up and do something, or if we rest. We decide if we go to work today or if we play hooky. We decide to take a class, read a book, go for a walk, to eat, to call a friend, play a game, write a letter, sleep, or go exploring. We decide whether or not we want to invite God to share in our day -or our life. But whether we choose to have Him present with us or not - He is there. He gave us a lot of power when He allowed us to choose............
