Change Begins With Me...
What I become in life is a direct result of the choices that I make everyday. If I look around at the current state of my life's health, I get a snapshot of how my decisions have shaped my very existence. My view becomes more precise, and I realize that I am the factor that makes all the difference in my world.
When we make decisions, if we realize it or not, we're plotting a course. Whether the culprit is emotional traps, self-centeredness, or the inability to honor yourself, the desire for more is born when we discover areas of our womanhood that are less desirable. The heightening of that awareness empowers us to make healthier decisions.
As we begin to take action, these new steps create a movement in our lives. Not busy work, but progression in the right direction. The type of progression that brings confidence to my days and peace to my nights. These new actions create change, and better decisions generate a demand on my focus. I am now accountable to myself and, I'm trusting God to make up the difference.
Today, I choose my future. Not just any lot but all the God has for me. I use the power of decisions and the will of God to define the direction of my life. With His guidance, I choose and humbly allow Him to complete the work until the day of Jesus Christ.
Do I love where I am? Am I settling or living a life that reflects authentically?
Where am I headed? Am I honest with myself and others? Am I hurting others?
What do I need to decide? What am I waiting for? Why haven't I made a decision yet? Whose words do I need to take into consideration?
What are the three actions I need to take, but I have been avoiding? What will my next step be?
Psalm 25:12 (NIV)
Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
Psalm 138:8 (NIV)
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
