The Power of Choice
Scriptures is filled with examples of persons who found their greatest success after experiencing severe crises or traumas. You always have a choice. You can choose to travel the road of self-destruction with a rerun of the past and end up with an emotional or mental breakdown. Or, you can choose to sing with the psalmist, "This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24). You may not feel glad about your past or even your present circumstances. But you can be glad that God has given you the ability to use this day for good. When you do, you'll be rejoicing even in the midst of trials!
