I Choose...

My summer job has ended.  I do not have anything lined up for the Fall.  People keep asking me about it.  Nothing but subbing in sight.

I choose to trust the Lord.  I choose to trust that He has a plan for me...and that He will provide for me and my family.  I choose joy..and not complaining.  I choose to be a blessing to others...by pouring out the blessings that He has given to me.  I choose to believe and not to despair.  I choose to trust the Lord.

I choose to be thankful because the Lord has taken care of me.  I have never had to go hungry.  Our bills have always been paid.  I choose to be grateful because Jesus loves me...even when I am far from lovable.  I choose to see the positive.  I choose to look around me and see all the good that comes from His hand.  I choose to smile and count my blessings.

That is great! I wish my attitude was that good. I will work on it because you are right. The Lord is good. He does take care of us.

Actually Kristina, I must be honest. This is a battle for me. I wasn't necessarily feeling it when I started the post. But I decided consciously that I wasn't going down the negative path. By the second paragraph...I was feeling better. By the end...I was feeling pretty darned good.

I know that this is a battle that I need to fight daily.

I want you to know that this was an encouragement to me today. Each day is new, and each day we must choose again to trust in Him.

Good choices. I choose to trust Him also.
