I choose STRONG!

Maybe you can relate, but the world has a way of dictating your life and your feelings.  It sometimes seems like I have no choice in how I am supposed to act or to feel.  We can let the world rule our choices and sit passively by or we take an active part in deciding.

I realized recently that I DO have a choice! 

I decide every morning what my attitude will be for the day!
I decide what I eat, what I do, where I go, what my day will include, who it will include.

So I decided that I have a decision about my decisions….I could choose to be weak and go at life from that perspective of always being defeated and deflated about what life throws at me OR…

I could choose to be STRONG!

Strong in joy and love
Strong in assurance from the Lord.
Strong in living healthy and fit.

As I build up my physical muscles with lifting weights and crazy lunges/squats, I am reminded that I need to do the same for my emotional and spiritual body.  I am still figuring out what that looks like, but it seems like the more I make decisions to be strong, the easier it get, so perhaps choosing good things builds up those emotional and spiritual muscles.

With strength comes confidence, grace and joy.  It means I stand up straight and walk with confidence because I am a daughter of the king, a woman graced with a joy from within no matter what I look like on the outside.


What does choosing to be strong mean to you?
