Yes, you do have a choice. As I am still learning, no one can MAKE you feel anything. Your response is still your choice.
So what will you choose today?
Will you choose to be bitter and envious?
Will you choose to be angry over every perceived affront and aggravation against you or others?
Will you choose to harbor unforgiveness in your heart?
Or will you choose to be grateful for this one life you get to live here on earth?
Will you choose to be thankful for all the small daily gifts from God?
Will you choose to be excited for the mission God has placed you in?
Will you choose to be happy that one day all the hardships will be over and you will see with your own eyes Jesus fulfilling every last one of His promises?
“So remember: fear the Eternal and serve Him sincerely and faithfully. Put away from you any gods your ancestors served across the Euphrates River or in Egypt, and serve only Him. 15 If you decide that you’re not willing to serve Him, then today is the day for you to choose whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors bowed to in the land beyond the great River, or the gods of the Amorites whose country you possess. But as for me and my family, we will serve the Eternal” (Joshua 24:14-15, The Voice).
