We have a choice! In our day we can choose to be grumpy, happy, sad, mad, full of rage, silly, controling, permissive, full of joy... We have a choice!
We have a choice to follow after God, or follow after man. We have a choice! I can allow pressures to overtake me or I can give them over to God. I can sit in self pity or can stand up and say, "today is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it!" I can live in spiritual warfare, oppressed, or I can take my position of authority. I can see others around me as critical but that doesn't mean that they are condemning. I can allow Satan to speak lies or I can soak in the truth.
I am choosing joy. I am choosing truth. I am choosing to love. I am choosing to follow after God, yeilding to the Holy Spirit. I choose to forgive. I choose to move forward. I choose to be a child of the most high God. I choose to listen to His voice over the voice of the world. I purpose, I resolve, I choose!
How about you?
Daniel 1:8 says "But Daniel resolved not to defile himself ..."
Sarah resolved not to defile herself...!
