Choosing choices worth celebrating

Some choices morph into regrets. Some produce reasons to celebrate. (Even if your past choices weren’t worth celebrating, your future ones can be.)

The choices you choose to make will make or break you. Put the brakes on harmful choices and give the gas to helpful ones.

To let a thought say in your mind, is to choose it. Not to choose is to choose the status quo. If you don’t choose your choices, life will make them for you. To wait until it’s too late is to make a choice by default.

When you look back on your life, it can be said: “You had your choices.” Even when you think that you had no choice, you choose what you thought, what you said, and what you did. You may think that you didn’t choose where you are, but look back and you can see that a trail of choices brought you there.

Sometimes we choose to ignore a lie because it’s easier than telling insecure people the truth and experiencing their hostility. If you don’t choose to be really good, you’ll never know how hard it is to be even a little bit good.

People say, “You don’t choose your life.” That’s not true. You don’t choose your birth, but you are fee to choose your life.

Choose to mind your own conscience. The first step is to listen to it. Wrong choices aren’t always accidents.

Choose to read, watch, and listen to things that will make you mindful, not mindless. Before you choose other people’s choices, examine your own. Your own choices may be better.

I’ve chosen to pray so much that it has become a habit. Now I frequently find myself praying all day.

Choice Words

Every choice
Has a consequence.
They accumulate
And create your life

And even when you don’t
Make the right choice
You can still choose
To make it right.

Life is full of intersections,
Where you can change direction
Or stay your course.
Each one impacts your destination.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
