Choose You This Day

By: Jenifer Metzger

Each morning when we wake up we have choices to make. We have those every day choices like what to have for breakfast, to start with coffee or juice, to wear jeans or yoga pants, the easy choices. But we also have big, life altering choices that we must make every single day. The choice of who or what we will serve.

Will we serve our self, our calendar, our job, our anger, our addictions, our loneliness, our pride, our social media accounts, or our God?

Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...
But as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
Joshua 24:15

Every morning, truthfully it is more like every hour, we must make the decision to serve God. When we don't make that conscience, intentional choice to serve God, other things take over. Before we know it, we are serving our calendar. Filling our hours with every thing except God. Or serving our cell phone, bowing down to every little ding notifying us of something that "immediately" needs our attention. Or we fill it self-pity, feeling sorry for ourselves because something isn't going the way we want. Or maybe we fill it with pride, giving ourselves a pat on the back for each and every little thing in our life, instead of thanking God.

Before your feet even hit the floor in the morning, make an intentional decision to serve God. Start your day with praises to Him, with reading the Bible and prayer. Then throughout your day pause for little praise breaks, set an alarm if you need the reminder.

Make your choice right now, Who you will serve today?

  1. Love the thought of making an intentional decision to serve God each morning before even getting out of bed. So true, the decision is made daily. This day.

  2. What a vital reminder. When we don't make conscious choices, we tend to drift, and drifting usually takes us away from where we need to be.

  3. It's so easy to say we will serve God and then get caught up in the world. Thanks for making me slow down and think today.
