Week 1 Day 5- Dreams and Choices

 

I’ve received a lot of good advice in my life. Near the top of the list is this wise observation from a friend: “Life is not made by the dreams that you dream but by the choices that you make.”

He’s right-your life today is the sum total of all the choices you’ve made up to this point. The apostle Paul gave similar advice in Philippians 1:10\, when he said to “approve the things that are excellent” (1:10). In any given situation, we have a whole continuum of choices-ranging from really rotten choices, to the mediocrity of average choices, to choices that are good, and then to those that are excellent. God wants to move us across the continuum, past our natural impulses, all the way to excellent choices.

Often it’s challenging to make the most excellent choice, especially if there aren’t many others joining us. Sometimes it may feel as if our desires and freedoms have been suppressed. But if you follow Paul’s advice, you’ll notice some really positive outcomes-like being pure and blameless and fruitful (v.11).
Make the choice to live a life filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23). Then revel in the result!

The little choices we must make
Will chart the course of life we take;
We either choose the path of light,
Or wander off in darkest night. -D. De Haan

Take on the Journey, Embrace the Process, Accept the Transition, Remove the Isolation, and Make the right Choices!

My life will never be the SAME!

“For the first time in my life I can honestly look in the mirror and be happy with what I see. I am 46 years old; I truly thought I would have to be satisfied with what I was ‘dealt’ with. I want others to know what I know, that if you win the battle over your mind you do can anything, at any age! What do you have to change your mind about? I continue to be amazed that my Heavenly Father loves me so much that He saw fit for me to be in this program. Like I have said before, MY LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!”  Shari

The gray is going away

“The gray is going away!! God is still peeling back the layers of the onion and revealing His plan for my life. Without Karla’s leadership, prayers and obediently walking in God’s will, I would not have had this SOUL REVELATION! Thank you Karla. You are being used by God in ways that you would have never dreamed!”  Janet
