Number 10 Ftr TSP 55911587Think about a choice you need to make—an important choice. Do you have one in mind? Good. Now take some time to look into the future.

Ten days from now. Try to imagine the impact your choice has on your life and on your relationships at this point. How does your choice make you feel?

Ten months later. The seasons have changed; your life has progressed. What impact has your choice made on your relationships and feelings now? Go deeper into your heart and soul; stay there for a while to observe.

Ten years later. You are in a different phase of your life. You have a stronger personality and more well-defined interests. Has your choice played a role in your life? Has it contributed to positive growth, or has it prevented you from reaching your potential? Has it enabled you to build stronger, long-lasting ties to other people? Has it helped you develop your own honest and colorful personality? Or has it led you down the wrong path?

Now come back to the moment. Be aware that every decision shapes your future. Every choice can be a step forward, a step toward true happiness. Keep the faith that God is mighty within you, and choose wisely.


5-SECOND PRAYER: God, be with us and help us to make good choices. Amen.
