Vacation. Real life. Changes. Choices.
I wish I could say it had gone as I wanted, but nothing came to fruition. It was actually one of the laziest un-healthiest days I have had in a long time. I did step out of my comfort zone a few times, and that's something, but the day was nothing like I thought it would be. Or maybe I should say as I hoped it would be.
And that's what happens. I strive to be steadfast, and I fall on my face. I try hard to make decisions based off of things I know to be true, and sometimes I give in to something else when I make decisions.
Fear. Uncertainty. Pride. Slothfulness. So many things which I give into. I sat there knowing the decision I should make, but not making it. There is no excuse, except I chose badly.
But then comes the morning.
Today I get to start anew. Today I woke up with new mercies, a new chance, and a breath of fresh air. Today things start over and I can have hopes that I may get through it in a way where I incorporate new things, use my time wisely, and choose best. I am fully aware that I may go to sleep with knowledge that I have should have chosen better, but I got to wake up to a day full of hope and grace.
We all get that opportunity. So, my question for you is this: what will you do with the beautiful day which lays in front of you?
Me? I'm going to try to be productive in the morning, get some studying done on my certificate, choose wisely with my food, run, attend bootcamp, and settle in on my Bible study. That's what I'm hoping, and I should go make my list right now to have something to refer back to. But this morning brings me a new chance to do the things God puts in front of me, have the life I choose, and be the person I want to be.
Who's with me?
