Each day, we have a choice to renew our minds. It is a new day with new beginnings and new chances to heal.
Our minds change a little at a time and we find ourselves exercising some form of power in our lives.
God’s power helps us as every new day there are new temptations. Temptations are attractive. As we walk out our journey, we find ourselves in moments where we put ourselves in a place of weakness where we know temptation will meet us. We know the answer, yet, we still must make the choice. The mind may try to counter-argue: “Just one last time. I’ll do it. It’s fine. I’ll start again tomorrow.”
If we fall in this moment, we can blame the circumstances, but it was still our choice.
Good and bad opportunities will come. We can see these moments as tests, and like tests, we need to pass them; otherwise, the same test returns.
