BELIEVE CHECK-IN | APRIL.
To accept or regard something as truth (from Merriam Webster).
What did April bring in terms of believing? Well, lots of moments that I didn't believe, really.
It's easy to believe when life is easy and good. But it's more than 10 times harder when life is tough.
And it's in those moments, that I come to a point where I can either believe or I can doubt.
That "can" part implies an option. And this month I realized that faith is completely a choice. I can choose to believe and choose to doubt. I can choose to grow or I can choose to stand still and let my emotions get the best of me. And I can choose Jesus or I can choose sin.
This month, many of my choices were made in times of weakness, and in those moments, I chose sin over Jesus. I chose negativity instead of hope. And I chose doubt over belief.
Which is why I'm so grateful for second chances. And the chance to re-do my choices. And today, I choose Him.
What did/do you believe this month? Do you still think about your word for the year and/or resolutions for 2015?
