LIVE: Nurture by the Spirit — The Choice is Yours

The Choice is Yours

As I reflected on the concept of nurture, I kept being drawn to the words educate and train.  The process of being educated and trained can happen over a long period of time or occur in an intense rapid manner. Sometimes it seems that we are moving through life gaining a little bit of information at a time, while other times it seems like life is coming at us so fast that we can’t take everything in.  It is during these times that I feel like I hear people say, “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle”.  My usual response to this statement is… “You have a say in what you can and cannot handle.  The Choice is Yours.”

I read something a while ago and the essence of it was “you are the manager of your life, and you are given things in life (i.e. life events, stressors, opportunities, people, etc.) and it is your responsibility to manage them”.  I remember thinking “Wow, it is my life!  And I have a say in what I want in life, what I want my life to look like, who I want in my life, etc.”  Just like a manager makes sure everything is running smoothly and successfully in a business, I am the manager of my life and I must do the same for me.  The reality is…life is going to keep living and situations are going to keep coming at you but how you handle the events that arise is up to you…The Choice is Yours.

So it seems that one of the roles that life is teaching…one of the positions that Spirit is nurturing, educating, and training you to be is a manager…a manager of your life. The question is what type of manager will you be?  The Choice is Yours.

During this month of being Nurtured By the Spirit, I encourage you to reflect on how you are managing your life.  If you are living your Greatest life, keep it up!  If you realize that some changes NEED to be made, I encourage you to make those changes because with Spirit you are powerful and empowered to manage your life.  Remember, The Choice is Yours.

God Bless and continue to Live By the Spirit.
