Today I Choose…

I know that what we bind on earth is bound in heaven and what we loose on earth is loosed in heaven.  (Matthew 16:19 and Matthew 18:18)  It is my choice, so for today, I choose:

 …joy over sorrow

…laughter over tears

…treasured memories over heartfelt regrets

…full over empty

…brightness over darkness

…skipping and twirling over slowly plodding along

…compliments over criticism

…smiles over frowns

…peace over anxiety

…courage over fear

…faith over doubts

…blessings over hardships

…serenity over chaos

…prayer over worry

…praise over pleading

…patience over pushy

…compassion over intolerance

…forgiving over begrudging

…freedom over bondage

Because today, I choose to follow Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, and I prayerfully request that the love He shares with me daily is reflected in my eyes, in my actions, and in my words.

 

About dorissavanover

Wife, mom, mom-in-law, and grandma, I write stories of everyday blessings - those ordinary moments that become extraordinary when we become aware of being in God's awesome presence. Recently retired, I enjoyed twenty-eight years of employment as an executive assistant to a commercial real estate broker. I'm excited to have more time to write and share the wonders of living an abundantly fulfilling life; a life of having a real relationship with Jesus Christ, our Savior, the Son of our very loving Heavenly Father.
