This Tuesday morning Jewish service reminded each student about choices that we make on a daily basis. Even though God puts forth many opportunities for us throughout the day to do the right thing, we don’t always take them. It is our choice to do a nice act for someone or be in a positive mood. We choose to allow the external environment around us effect how we live.
It may be difficult sometimes to realize that God is always there for you. When I am down in the dumps I sometimes lose sight of my faith in a better day and that God has a plan for me. My choice of accepting the fact that God has a plan can affect my whole day. I don’t want another day to go by were I doubt God’s love for me and it starts with making a choice.
“Gracious God, it seems that life is always requiring decisions. Sometimes everything in my life is stable and settled, and then a new opportunity presents itself, and I feel unsteady and unsure of which way to go. At other times I become weary with stability and decide I want a change in my life. Unsettled about making a decision, especially when there is still some haziness in my heart about the course I should take. I do not, after all, want to make the wrong decision. I pray that you will guide my thoughts when I am searching through options for my future. Help me be patient when the process is unfolding more slowly than I would want. Help me trust the spirit of intuition that you have given me as an aid for interpreting the signs that help me move forward. Give me a spirit of risk and the faith to trust, so that I will try something new, speak something new. Remind me that even if I make a faulty decision, your boundless grace will bring goodness to the decision I make. I ask this for the sake of Your love. Amen.”
