Choose Ye This Day

Motivational Minute

Quote Of The Day

  

"We are free to choose our paths, but we can't choose the consequences that come with them.” ― Sean Covey The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective Teens

Gods Sovereignty


It is God’s sovereignty that determines so many things about our environment: the culture and period of time in which we’re born and the seemingly random events we experience.  And though God does not control our choices, he may open and close doors of opportunities for our choices.  And God certainly has a way of intervening in our lives in mysterious ways.  We may never know until Heaven just how many times he protected us, disciplined us, worked out circumstances for us, or tugged on our hearts to turn us toward him and his will.
