When your life is to be summarized, it is a collection of what you believed and what you did while you were alive. Your actions and expressed believes are a product of what you have seen, touched, taught, felt, smelled, experienced, heard, etc and all these come through ONE door; YOUR SOUL or rather put as YOUR HEART.
“In the end, that was the choice you made, and it doesn’t matter how hard it was to make it. It matters that you did”…Cassandra Claire
Proverbs 27:19 says …”As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.”
Luke 6:45 says “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
Proverbs 4:23…” Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”
The movies you see
The music you listen to
The advice you take
The friends you keep
Your criteria for relationships
Your response to love
Your response to hate
Your response to hurts
Where you go for fun
Where you go when you feel depressed
How you react to private and public events.
Whilst change can be uncomfortable and sometimes difficult, it is also inevitable. Telling yourself “this is who I am and I cannot change that” is a disfavor to the ever-evolving name of the man as design by God…Proverbs 4:18…”The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day”. You might not be able to stop what/who comes knocking at your door but you can stop what/who enters. You can determine what/who enters and what/who stays in. You can also determine what/who leaves because your life’s story is a direct tale of who/what YOU allowed to enter through your door and stay in. If you don’t like the story of your life, you can positively change that story.
“Life is like a sandwich!, Birth as one slice, and death as the other. What you put in-between the slices is up to you. Is your sandwich tasty or sour?”…. Allan Rufus

“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely…..Roy T. Bennett“
Positive Change is possible if you let Jesus Christ in. In the Old Testament (Exodus 12:7) they needed the blood of the Lamb(Jesus) to save them from the Angel of Death but in Revelations 3:20, the Lamb of God Himself (Jesus) is available and calling out to you to let Him into your life so that He can give you the transformational power to change whatever circumstances in your life to a glorious one in Him.
“There comes a time in your life when you have to choose to turn the page, write another book or simply close it”…Shannon L. Alder
