I choose LIFE.

Every Friday, I join an online Christian writing community, Five Minute Friday. We are given a one-word prompt and write – unscripted, unedited, pure free-write – for 5 minutes. The prompt this week is: CHOOSE.

Actually, I do read through my script afterwards to correct my mistakes, underlined in red; to check scripture references and to find an appropriate image to illustrate the topic.

journal with caption saying ‘Today I will choose life’

Deuteronomy 30:19

Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!

Choose life. This is the call of my heart. It is a daily choice, a daily plea – to choose life.

What does it mean to you?

Choosing to awaken and breathe.

Choosing to stand and to walk.

Choosing to see, listen, smell and taste.

Choosing to touch and hold.

Choosing to speak and create.

Choosing to dream and hope.

Choosing to trust and to risk.

Choosing to give and receive.

Choosing to open the heart.

Choosing to love…

Choosing to embrace life!

It is a daily choice. Tonight I chose, against my lethargy to go out and go to an AA meeting – to give and receive. In AA we say we are to choose ‘to do the next right thing’. It helps; it heals, but only I can make that choice. It is my privilege.

It is the highest and most exciting privilege.

The devil seeks to destroy, kill and steal our life, steal our spirit, our hope, joy, motivation, energy and faith.

Jesus came to restore our spirit, hope and heart and give us life to the full; abundant, bouncing, thriving life.

Heaven and earth witness the choice you make – curse or blessing, death or life.

Which will you choose this morning, and this afternoon, and this evening?

He is a gentleman – He stands at the door and knocks.

Will you invite Him in?

Will you choose life? Glorious, abundant life?
