We make many choices every day. Some choices are made for us.

There are choices that weigh heavy on me. Did I make the right decision? Did I set the course for my son for him to choose poorly or will he choose well? (and who am I to decide?)

Sometimes love is a choice. It doesn’t matter if it is in marriage, parenting, or friendships. Sometimes, we can’t let emotions be our guide. We have to choose love. We have to choose truth.

Life isn’t always fair. In our work, sometimes people with authority make choices for us.

There are times when I don’t want to be obedient, but I choose to be.

There are times when I must choose joy. When I must choose happiness. When I choose to make time for those I love instead of what I want to do.

We choose how we spend our time. I don’t choose wisely since I am selfish, but I pray God fills in the gaps of my failures.

Be blessed:)

  1. I’m stopping by from Five-Minute Friday, and I love your comment that love is a choice. When we expect to just feel love all the time, I think we set ourselves up for being disappointed- sometimes it’s harder than that! Thanks for sharing your reflections – blessings to you and your family.
