It is a choice. . .

June 10, 2008

I came across a great quote sometime ago and it really hit me hard personally – and unfortunately, I could not recall where I got it from.

“Disappointments are inevitable BUT discouragement is a choice.”

How about you? Have you realized that when we are discouraged, we have already made that choice to be as such?

    Hey Jonathan

    Thanks for the visit. Yes in times of disappointments, we need wisdom and understanding.

    God bless.

    kuya weylmer,

    i also read from Rick Warren’s daily PDL devotional the following line:

    I want to say something to you, and it may sound mean, but it isn’t. It’s simply truth, so I say this in love: If you’re discouraged, that’s your choice.

    We make a choice to be discouraged. We make a choice to let discouraging thoughts move freely through our minds. But, we can also make a choice to change our thoughts at any time, taking them captive in the Lord.

    just a thought to share
