I choose to live by choice not by chance;
To make changes not excuses;
To be motivated not manipulated;
To be useful not be used;
To excel not compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice not the random opinion of others.”
And what kind of life standard do we use? This one might be just what you need.
But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you]. But if anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does not belong to Christ, is not truly a child of God]. (Romans 8:9, AMP)
Prayer- Lord, thank you for your Holy Spirit who indwells us when we ask Christ into our life. Amen.
