“…Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.” (Joshua 24:15)

I have to choose.
Not my parents.
Not my heritage.
To choose for me.

I have to choose.
Not trapped by yesterday.
Not anxious for tomorrow.
To choose this day.

I have to choose.
Not to be in control.
Not to be the master.
To choose whom I will serve.

I have chosen.

“There is a choice you have to make
in everything you do.
So keep in mind that in the end,
the choice you make makes you.” (John Wooden)

Are you choosing? For yourself? Today? Jesus?
What “you” are your choices making?

    In response to “Choices” –

    There have been times
    when choices I’ve made
    if given the chance
    I would gladly trade

    The path that I took
    was rocky and rough
    and things all around me
    seemed to be tough

    I could have asked Jesus
    to lend me a hand
    to reach down and pull me
    from the sinking sand

    He could have helped me
    to a road that was paved
    but I walked on my own
    before I was saved

    I climbed over
    the brush and the briar
    thinking I could help myself
    from that fire

    When trees fell down
    and blocked my way
    I could have gotten down
    on my knees to pray

    I could have said
    Lord, it’s You that I choose
    please save my life
    before life I lose

    But I was stubborn
    fighting for my goal
    now to the Lord
    I have given my soul

    The path I now travel
    is clear to me
    and any obstruction
    is plain to see

    When I look ahead
    and problems arise
    I pray to the Lord
    and He hears my cries

    He helps me to choose
    a safe way to go
    making my sins
    as white as snow

    Of all of the choices
    that I have made
    I’m glad I made one
    I’m glad I’ve been saved

    Cool – It’s Battle of the Poems!


  8. It’s Your Choice | Craig T. Owens Says:

    […] Choices must be made every day. These choices lead to either blessing or woe.  […]
