911th -- Many Wonderful Choices


Each morning that we awake, we are given a fresh 24 hours and it is up to
us how that day will be spent. We are in control of how our day goes. It
can either be positive and upbeat or we can allow our day to be sad and 
depressing. God gives us the choice on how we see our days. The Lord 
directs us to bless our days and see them in the correct manner. The 
Bible declares in Psalm 118:24 “This is the day which the Lord has made; 
we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Seeing our days in a positive light 
and rejoicing in them is a conscious decision that we have to make. We 
have to choose to bless this day and use it for our benefit. (Joel 3:10)

Many times we hear discouraging news and allow that to impact how we see 
ourselves. We allow what's happening externally around us to change 
what's happening internally within us. One thing we should remember is 
that God is still on His throne and has everything under control. Our 
demeanor should be one of constant trust knowing that God is faithful to 
meet our every need and we should do our part to see each day as the 
blessing that it is. The Bible declares in Deuteronomy 30:19 “...I have 
set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life,
that both thou and thy seed may live.” Again, we are told to choose the 
right things and not the wrong things. (Psalm 28:7-8) (Galatians 6:7)

We will have no one else to blame when we find ourselves murmuring and 
complaining about how unfair life is because we are given the choice to 
choose life and blessing. Be encouraged to think on what you're thinking
about. Are you wasting your days or are you blessing your days? See each
new day as an opportunity to do something special for yourself and others.
When you do, you will see life in a whole new light. (Psalm 34:1-8)

I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to bless your days
and start each one with renewed determination that it will be better than 
the one before.


What is life? It is more than just existing. It is more than just 
breathing. It is more than just slowly counting your birthdays while your
body gets older and weaker. It has taken me many years of learning and 
growing, but I think that now I am finally beginning to understand what 
life is and what life isn't.

Life isn't some frantic race towards some distant goal. Life is a 
leisurely walk you take each day seeing all the wonder and beauty around 
you. Life isn't some tightrope balancing act where you must be perfect or
lose everything. Life is a joyful stroll down some old railroad tracks 
where if you fall off you just smile, laugh and jump right back on. Life 
isn't some worrisome counting of every penny you make. Life is smelling 
flowers, smiling at sunrises, playing with laughing children, and 
collecting priceless memories. Life isn't what happens to you. Life is 
rather the many wonderful choices that you make all through the day and 
all through your life.

It is these many wonderful choices that bring you the joy you seek. It is
these many loving choices that bring you the love you need. It is these 
many Heavenly choices that bring you the oneness with God you desire. It 
is these many choices that allow you to smile and forgive instead of 
stewing in your anger when someone hurts you. It is these many choices 
that allow you to laugh and love instead of despair when things go wrong.
It is these many choices that allow you to give joy and goodness to others
instead of always trying to get things from them.

All of life comes down to the many wonderful choices we make each day. 
Let's use them to choose a lifetime of love, joy, peace, happiness, 
goodness, delight, and oneness with God for ourselves. Let's use them to 
bless the world, help others, and bring truth, joy, love, and light to 
everyone we meet.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 34:1-4 “I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall 
continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the
humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and 
let us exalt His name together. I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and 
delivered me from all my fears.”

Isaiah 40:28-29 “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the
everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth
not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding. He 
giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth

Psalm 34:17-19 “The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth 
them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a
broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the 
afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”

Psalm 103:1-5 “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless
His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who 
redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness
and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy
youth is renewed like the eagle's.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
