Five Choices That Transform

We learned in my Sunday morning class that, ultimately, your identity is based on your choices. Here are five choices you can make that will help determine your course of life.

Anyone who is joined to Christ is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come” 2 Corinthians 5:17

1. You can choose to get healthier. Instead of being a couch potato, find ways to increase your energy, lower your stress, get more sleep, and have more power.

Psalm 119:73 says, Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.

2. You can choose to deepen relationships. The fear of rejection prevents connection, and the only way to get rid of fear is to do the thing you fear the most.

Learn communication skills, replace bad relationships, and reach out and risk connecting with someone.

3. You can choose to trust God, no matter what happens. I will always thank the Lord; I will never stop praising him. Psalm 34:1 When you get to the point in your life where you can say, I praise the Lord, no matter what happens you are progressing.

4. You can choose what you think about. Throughout the 20th century, scientists believed the adult brain could not be changed. When the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize winner proved that you can rewire your brain, science finally caught up to the Bible:

Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Romans 12:2a

Feed your brain with truth — God’s Word.

5. You can choose Jesus as your Savior. I’m not just talking about Jesus saving you from your sins. I’m talking about letting Jesus be your Savior every day.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, Anyone who is joined to Christ is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come. It is never too late to change.

Pray this prayer today:

Dear God, there are some things you’ve dealt me and life has dealt me and others have dealt me that I don’t like.

Thank you that you made me in your image and that I can make choices. Today, in your power and your strength, I choose to get healthier. I choose to do the things that will give me more energy and a healthier mind, body, and emotions.

Lord, I choose to build healthy relationships. I’m scared to death, but I’m going to risk building new, healthy connections.

God, I choose to trust you, regardless of the circumstances. I will praise you, no matter what happens! I will trust that every detail of my life is being worked out for good. Lord, I choose what I will think about — no more junk. Help me to fill my life with the Word of truth. Most of all, Jesus, I choose you as my Savior. I need your salvation, but I also need you to save me from myself. I need you to help me rewire my body, my heart, my mind, and my relationships so that the rest of my life is the best of my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
