Choose Life

Yesterday I read a quote that I had seen before and it made me think.
"It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities" - J. K. Rowling
Choices. They affect everything and I think that I get what Ms. Rowling was trying to say. Talent is not the main thing. Our cemeteries are filled with dreams that were never fulfilled because poor choices halted progress. Many talented people fail to accomplish their life purpose.
Today I will make choices. I will choose the conversations I engage in, the foods I will eat and the schedule that I will adhere to among many others. These choices will shape my day, shape my body and shape my mind. You will make some choices too!
So what kind of choices will you make? Will they breathe life into you or suck the air out of your sails? You have before you choices that will lift you up or tear you down. In everything that you do today, choose life!
Deuteronomy 30:19: This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.
