today i chose peace.....

today i had my intro to government class again.....

i've been trying the past week or so to say each morning, "Father, today i DECIDE to walk in love toward others." i gotta say, a lot of those days, it just didn't work. so again today i said it again and went on with my day....

as time approached for the class, GOD gave me the insight i needed to finally by successful at it. the reason, for me personally, that i'd been failing at it before was twofold....

one....after saying it in the morning i often forgot it and didn't remember it again until AFTER i'd walked way out of love with someone. so since the Bible tells we should meditate on the word, that translates in this case to reminding myself throughout the day to stay in the walk, rather than just letting circumstances hit me in the face before i remember my mission for that day.

second....if you know you're heading into a situation that might be difficult to stay in that love walk, then take a few extra seconds to pray and remind yourself again what the real agenda is. then you won't be caught off guard and misstep.

so today i CHOSE peace, and not without a small stumble or two, i stayed in it and liked it a whole bunch MORE than the alternative! blessings...

Great choice!!!! It's definitely not always easy, especially in a group of people you may not agree with. I'm working on this too!! Thanks for the reminder.

Oh, and I didn't know you were on a low-carb thing... LOL

I second what Tab said...it isn't easy but it is worth it!
