I struggle with choices. I have learned that the everyday little choices I make are the ones that matter the most. When I get up in the morning, when I decided to take my quiet time. I take the time to schedule out my day countless times but it only takes a two days for something to come up to get off track. I total let the schedule go when these interruptions come. I could choose to pick up where we left off but that never happens. Why do I let myself get defeated I don't know.
I do know that when I choose talk to God in my quite time and all through out the day my days are not smoother but my reactions to the chaos of life are better. In turn my days are better. When I choose to get up before my kids I can get breakfast ready and a few minutes to myself. I struggle daily with both of these things. I feel like I'm in a battle and I want to be victorious but staying strong is hard. When I sleep in or don't take the time to talk with Jesus I beat myself up and get short tempered with my kids and let myself get distracted by other things that don't matter.
I have to then choose not to be so hard on myself and turn to the Word of God for his promises. These are a few I go over everyday.
John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they (Amy) may have life, and have it to the full."
Proverbs 17:22 "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
John 15:11 " I have told you (Amy) this so that my joy may in you (Amy) and that your joy may be complete."
Have a great day and think about the choices you make.
