Every morning they rise and make me choose… faith or fear.
Faith stands tall with a light… calling. Quietly.
Fear rolls at my feet like an under current, longing to pull me down.
They both ask me to believe in something I cannot see.
Today I choose faith. Again, and again, and again.
When the difficult rises today, Lord… I trust you.
When the ugly words come… help me speak peace.
For the ones in pain today… I believe you heal.
And as loved ones travel home… guide them with your light.

Oh, yes! We are challenged every day to choose faith. As a family member sets out onto the snowy highway today… as more family tackles the roads to come here on Saturday… I want to trust in His promises. I love Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Great scripture, Carol. Safe travels for your family… one of mind heading across country tomorrow. Clear roads and safety 🙂
Good perspective – to be aware of making the choice. Not as a helpless stand-by, but a participant.
We have family here, with more coming and going over the weekend. Busy days, but fun! Have a wonderful holiday, full of blessings.
