Today, "I Choose Love"...

I Choose Love
No occasion justifies hatred;
no injustice warrants bitterness'
I chose love.

I Choose Joy
I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance.
I will refuse the temptation to be cynical...
the tool of the lazy thinker.
I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God..
I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God.

I Choose Peace
I will live forgiven. I will forgive, so that I may live.

I Choose Patience
I will overlook the inconveniences of the world.
Instead of cursing the one who takes my place, I'll invite him to do so;
Rather than complain that the wait is to long, I will thank God for a moment to pray.
Instead of clinchinf my fist at new assignments, I will face them with joy and courage.

I Choose Kindness
I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone.
Kind to the rich, for they are afraid.
And kind to the unkind, for such is how God has treated me.

I Chose Goodness
I will go without a dollar before I take a dishonest one.
I will be overlooked before I will boast.
I will confess before I accuse.
I choose goodness.

I Choose Faithfulness
Today I will keep my promises.
My debtors will not regret their trust.
My associates will not question my word.
My wife will not question my love.
And my children will never fear that their father will not come home.

I Choose Gentleness
Nothing is won by force.
I choose to be gentle.
If I raise my voice, may it only be in praise.
If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer.
If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.

I Choose Self Control
I am a spiritual being.
After this body is dead, my spirit will soar.
I refuse to let what will rot, rule the eternal.
I choose self control.
I will be drunk, only by joy.
I will be impassioned only by my faith.
I will be influenced only by God.
I will be taught only by Jesus Christ.
I choose self control.

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.
To these I commit my day.
If I succeed, I will give thanks.
If I fail, I will seek Grace.

And when my day is done, I will place my head on my pillow and rest.


- Max Lucado,
Minister, Christian author,... poet, husband, father, friend... child of God.


What will you choose?

Peace.

The past two years of my life have been damn strange in a bad way. But I think, hope, pray that things are starting to look up. An e-mail and CD's are coming your way soon TC.

And thanks for asking.

Thanks for asking and the warm wishes crzy. The last couple of years have been tough ones, but I keep trying to walk down another street and make things better.
