A CHOICE IS POWERFUL
One day I woke up and realized that where I am today is a result of every choice I’ve made thus far. As I pondered on this thought, I recognized how powerful a choice is. It can either make or break a person, cause shame or esteem honor, delay or propel destiny, cause pain or bring joy, foster success or failure, promote good or bad health, be a catalyst to wealth or poverty, be the difference between staying married or getting divorced, saying no or becoming addicted to something, and so much more. A person’s choice also affects his or her family, friends, and everything connected to him or her. Undoubtedly, it is truly a life and blessing or death and destruction matter.
Most people could say that if I could go back in time and do it all over again, I wouldn’t make the same mistake(s) or I would do this or that. What they are saying is I would make another choice. Even the adage hindsight is 20/20 has a connotation of knowing what I know now, I would make a different/better choice.
Oftentimes, I advise family, friends, and even strangers to exegesis their choices because I have learned to approach decision-making gingerly. I don’t allow others to force or precipitate my choice because I have discovered the value of it. Know that a person is never too old or young, and it is never too late to start making the right/good choice because it affects his or her future and life.
As we embark on this new season, let’s make choices based on righteous principles and not emotions. Let’s not overlook or ignore obvious deal breaker behaviors, words, habits, lies, and red flags. Let’s approach our decisions with much prayer and caution. Let’s listen to wise counsel and don’t dismiss it. Let’s focus on making choices that will leave a positive, prosperous, noble, and valuable legacy.
YOUR CHOICE IS POWERFUL, so make powerful choices…
