The community I live in consists of several townhouses divided in 4 sections. In order for one to gain access to each section, they must press a code and be buzzed in by the tenant. Once inside, each unit has its own privacy wall and gate which is usually kept locked. For a visitor to gain access to the individual unit, the tenant or occupant of the unit must unlock the gate. The bottom line--we choose who enters or not. Who or what are you letting in?
In life we have choices. Just like with the illustration shared above, we can decide or choose who and what we allow into our lives.
Sometimes while sitting on my patio the thought has come to me "I'm locked in--shut off from the rest of the people there". But then I realize I'm only locked in if I choose to be and only shut off if I choose to be. I have the power to open or close the gate. I have the power to decide who I let into my life as well as what I allow or let into my life. So do you.
So when you start to feel shut off from the rest of the world know that you have the power to choose. We have the power to invite and embrace the right people or things into our lives and to shut the door on the wrong ones. We have so much power that we oftentimes make a conscience decision to choose the wrong ones for whatever reasons. Today is the day to say to you--I choose to embrace all that is good. I choose to have life. I choose to exercise my God-given power.
Verse 20 states..."That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days; that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."
Who and what are you choosing to allow in your life? Who are you letting in? Remember you have so much more power than you think. Choose life! Choose blessings!
