Joy vs. Heartache, Pain and Disillusionment

It's our choice which path to take. Every day, it's a choice.  I've got a great devotional prayer book I'm reading this year and I've been really blessed by some of the insights in this book.  In particular, the words in a prayer last week made quite an impact on me.  It gives us a very clear perspective on choices.  Johnny Hunt of Woodstock Georgia writes this prayer: "Remind me of the joy that has always been mine when I have chosen to follow You.  Let me never forget the heartache, pain and disillusionment that come from my disobedience."  Can it be said any better than that?  It's the choices we make daily to walk in God's path or in our own.  What do you want today? Joy, or Heartache, pain and Disillusionment?  Seems to be a pretty clear choice!  Psalm 119:35 says, "Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it."  God knows that we will find joy, delight and peace when we walk in His will.  Make the right choice today!
