It’s Your Choice
I wanted to share a poem that I recently read in a book. It’s a simple but brilliant piece of poetry that I encourage us all to take personally.
You can walk in the valleys, but I’m not coming with you. Because I want you to be out there climbing mountains, where you can see the view.
You can look through an atlas, and see the world from afar. But I would rather you be out there reaching to catch a shooting star.
You can lie there watching the best of your life go by. But wouldn’t you rather be out there dancing on a hill where eagles fly?
You can sit in the shadows, wishing you could see. But wouldn’t you rather be out there achieving, what ever you want to be?
And if you want the secret of how to win or lose, then listen and I’ll tell you – all you do is choose!
– Keith Abraham CSP, Living Your Passion, 2004
Choose to make the difference in your life!
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12
