I make dozens of decisions every day. Some are small and seem inconsequential. Other decisions are more important and seem to have greater impact and value. What I so often forget is that the decisions I make either draws me closer in my walk with Jesus or takes me a step further away from Him. I can chose to love God and love others as described in, or I can chose to make my desires my first priority. I can decide to speak words of love or words of frustration. I ultimately decide how I am going to spend my time, and how many time-wasting rabbit trails that I am going to pursue in any given day. I can decide that negativity stops here. By the power of the Holy Spirit, I can show love and grace even when I don’t feel like it. I get to decide. I pray that I make decisions that positively impact my little corner of the world.
This post is a part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up. My friends and I gather over at Kate’s blog Heading Home to write for five minutes on the topic of the week.
