How do I choose life?

Is it a daily choice like choosing not to drink too much Mtn. Dew?

Or is it a moment-by-moment choice?

Or is it a once-and-for-all choice?

We are drawn to individuals who are "full of life."  What does this really mean?  Is this how I'm living?

I've wasted too much time trying to learn how to live for God.  Instead, I could have been living to learn God.

It's not too late.

I choose life.

I'll figure out the rest as I go.


  1. We are drawn to individuals who are "full of life"...Amen! I am reminded of a few people that I look to as "joy mentors" and "gratitude mentors". I try to hang around them whenever I get the opportunity, because they remind me and teach me to be joyful and grateful and to choose life.

  2. I think being full of life is a choice. Sure it comes easier to some, but it's driven by how we frame our life and its environment. Doesn't mean escaping pain and loss. Or denying it. Just means mustering up the strength to fight harder using joy as a weapon.

    What a blessing to have "joy mentors" and "gratitude mentors" in our lives!
