Choices

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. (Ps 9:1–2)

Some studies say that we make around 35,000 decisions each day. Perhaps the four most important choices I need to make are listed in the first two verses of Psalm 9. The focus of each choice is the Lord:

Give thanks…to the Lord

Remember…his wonderful deeds

I will be glad…exulting in him

I will sing praise…to his name

If I focus on these four, perhaps the other 34,996 choices I make today might be made differently.

Lord, you make decisions as well. I thank you that you decided to adopt me as your child. You have decided to always be near. You are making decisions for me that I cannot fathom at this time. And, I acknowledge that all your decisions are right for me. No fear.
