Life and Its Choices


Whether we realise it or not, everyday we get up we are presented with a menu of choices.

To eat or not to eat – it’s a choice

To live a life as God intended – it’s a choice

To go to work or not – it’s a choice

To forgive or not to forgive – it’s a choice

To be happy or sad – it’s a choice

To let go of the past and our pain bodies – it’s a choice

To be rich or to be poor – it’s a choice

To succeed or to fail – it’s a choice

And the list goes on.

Everyday I get up, I have to make the choice whether or not to make life and other personal challenges get the better of me…

Everyday, I MUST face my own demons – whether I want to or not.

They just don’t seem to be going away.  As soon as I conquer one, another shows its ugly head.  I accepted awhile now that that’s just the nature of life – it is what it is.

It is important to ask the right questions.  So instead of asking:

“Why me Lord, why?!?!”

Perhaps we could ask:

“What’s the lesson here Lord?  How can I turn this situation into yet another opportunity to learn?”

Now, don’t get it twisted – I don’t always achieve taking this ‘higher ground’ approach.  Yes, there are numerous occasions that I want to sit and cry and bathe in self-pity, self-doubt, etc, etc – but this too is a choice.

I came across three short stories written by Robert Kiyosaki for his fans.  One of which is entitled “Story # 3 – Get the Loser Out of You”.  After reading this story, I thought to myself – “well if Robert has to be challenging his own demons – mi nah gwaan too bad.  There’s hope for me yet!!!”

Remember always – if the Lord brought you to it, He’ll bring you through it (regardless of how big or small your IT is).

I’m choosing life, what will your choice be?

  1. It’s interesting to note that we make choices sometimes without even knowing it! A person who is given the option of either going to work on a weekend or spending that time visiting his parents but eventually decides to do neither, has made a choice despite the fact that he/she didn’t act on the two obvious options…

    I’ve made a choice to write this comment even though not doing so wouldn’t have made your post any less relevant to my life… I’m sure that was a good choice.
