What is Our Choice Going to Be?
What is our choice going to be?...
We are confronted daily with many situations calling for us to make a choice.
What roads to take to get to our destination, what to eat, what to wear, how to respond to questions, and so on.
Most of the time we know the choice to make based on our experience and knowledge, so it does not require much thought or extra effort on our part.
But what about those times when we must make a choice between what’s in our head versus what’s in our heart?
You know, those times when the temptation of the moment attempts to entice you into going against what you know to be right.
3 plus years ago the comfortable and familiar temptation to gorge myself on sugary and carb based food I should not be eating caused me to have to make some major life changes.
Those were the choices that required not only thoughts to think it through, but also help from the Holy Spirit living within us, as well as the 12 Step actions necessary to form new habits and behaviors.
How are you dealing with those times?..
Remember, isolation only fuels the temptation…
Check your experience…
“If tempted, we recoil from it as if from a hot flame.” Big Book pg 84
Lord, let us look temptation square in the eye and know that You will show us the way around it and away from it, AMEN.
"The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure." 1 Corinthians 10:13
Have a blessed day y’all!
