I refuse to be overcome by my circumstances or controlled by my emotions.
Instead I choose to live my life fully CONVINCED that God’s character is unchanging, His promises unfailing, and my eternal hope in Jesus will never disappoint.
I refuse to pretend with God.
Instead I choose to be HONEST about my sin, my hurts, my weaknesses and my need for God’s forgiveness, help and healing.
I refuse to be self-sufficient, trusting in my own plans and strength.
Instead I choose to be DEPENDENT on the Lord, trusting Him to meet all my needs and guide my ways.
I refuse to walk in willful disobedience.
Instead I choose to be OBEDIENT to my Lord, surrendering my fear, doubt and worry at the throne of His grace.
I refuse to treat the Word of God as an afterthought.
Instead I choose to be ATTENTIVE to His Word and His voice.
I refuse to ignore God’s work in my world.
Instead I choose to practice a lifestyle of REMEMBERING and celebrating His many acts of faithfulness and love.
I refuse to be held captive by an earthly, temporal perspective.
Instead I choose to have KINGDOM EYES, which look beyond the here and now into glory.
