Everyday, we make choices. We wake up and we look at what lies ahead as the sun creeps out of the night and brightens our landscapes.
We face so many roads; so many paths; so many directions. We could take any one of them, but we stay still. Our souls are frozen. Our minds are locked in time. We can’t decide where to go. We can’t decide.
I have had many mornings like this, haven’t you? My first response has been to lie back down and bury my head in my covers. I am not going to face any of the problems that are knocking on my door today, clambering to get in and war with me. I am not going to deal with them today. I yell, “Go away.” I have a private pity party.
Another response could be anger and disbelief at my situations and crisis. Why me again? My tub will not drain properly. My house is a mess. My life even worse. I have no friends. I have no money. I won’t do this. I need this, but we had to pay that bill that was fair because of this situation. Why, why, why? I am going to get even. That is what I am going to do. My life is so terrible, I am going to make it worse by lashing out and hurting others.

Acts 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
