I CHOOSE

>> Sunday, March 16, 2008

This is wonderful piece I always hear on the radio (98.7 DZFE). It's really inspiring.

I CHOOSE

The day is coming, in a few moments it will arrive and roar down the track with the rising of the sun. The stillness of the dawn will be exchanged for the noise of the day. The calmness of solitude will be replaced by the pounding pace of the human race. The refuge of the early morning will be invaded by decisions to make and deadlines to meet. It is now I must make a choice, and so .....

I CHOOSE LOVE ...

No occasion justifies hatred; no injustice warrants bitterness. Today I will love God and love what God loves.

I CHOOSE JOY ...

I will invite my God to be the God of my circumstances. I will refuse the temptation to be cynical ... the tool of a lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than the human beings God created. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to allow God to work in my life.

I CHOOSE PEACE ...

I am forgiven, so I will forgive others that we may live in peace.

I CHOOSE PATIENCE ...

I will overlook the inconveniences of the world. Rather than complaining that the wait is too long, I will thank God for a moment to pray. Instead of clinching my fists and gritting my teeth at new assignments, I will face them with joy and with courage.

I CHOOSE KINDNESS ...

I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone; kind to the rich, for they are afraid, and kind to the unkind, for such is how God has treated me.

I CHOOSE GOODNESS ...

I will go without a dollar before I will take a dishonest one. I will see the good in others when it is hard to find. I will confess before I will accuse.

I CHOOSE FAITHFULNESS ...

Today, I will keep my promises. My debtors will not regret their trust. My associates will not question my word. My spouse will not question my love and my children will never fear that I will not come home.

I CHOOSE GENTLENESS ...

Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice, may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.

I CHOOSE SELF-CONTROL ...

I am a spiritual being. After this body is dead, my spirit will soar. I refuse to let what is not of God rule my day.

LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS and SELF CONTROL

TO THESE I COMMIT MY DAY

If I succeed, I will give thanks.
If I fail, I will seek God's face.
And when this day is done,
I will place my head on my pillow and rest.
