An Incredible Power

Following is a quote about choice and the incredible power it has; the incredible difference it can make in our lives as we exercise it. Let’s read and then ask ourselves the questions: “Which choices will take us toward our dreams? Which choices will take us further from our dreams? Which do I choose?

The Power of Choice

“Here again , the GREATEST POWER man possesses . . . THE POWER TO CHOOSE . . . plays a most important part .

Stop to think about it . . . you can choose to be friendly , or you can choose to be unfriendly .

You can choose to be helpful , or you can choose to refuse to help .

You can choose to be cooperative , or you can choose to be stubborn .

You can choose to get excited , or you can choose to be calm .

You can choose to lose your temper , or you can choose to overlook the matter which would ordinarily cause you to be upset .

You can choose to be lovable , or you can choose to be bitter .

You can choose to smile , or you can choose to walk around with a long face .

You can choose to be trusting , or you can choose to distrust everyone you meet .

You can choose to believe that “ everybody is against you , ” or you can choose to believe that everybody likes you .

You can choose to be neat and clean , or you can choose to be careless and slovenly .

You can choose to be lazy , or you can choose to be ambitious.”

(found in Your Greatest Power by J. Martin Kohe)

The Gift of Choice

This power of choice was given to us by God when He created us. It’s a great gift but also a dangerous one if we use it foolishly.

How we use it will determine whether or not our dreams are fulfilled or left in ashes.

May we each ask our Creator for the wisdom, grace, strength, and power to choose wisely.
