What Path are You Taking?

The path of least resistance.  That's all I knew...until "googling" to find out more.  Per H.G. Wells:  "The path of least resistance is the path of the loser."  I certainly don't want to be one of those!  And that path would have consisted of wallowing in a pity party.

One of my go-to books is "Utmost for His Highest" by Oswald Chambers.  Mr. Chambers often nails me it! 

We have to take ourselves by the scruff of the neck and shake ourselves, and we will find that we can do what we said
we could not. The curse with most of us is that we won’t. The Christian life is one of incarnate spiritual pluck.

I've mentioned before how helpful it's been for me to praise even at times when it's nearly impossible.  Strong Christian friends, friends of The Most Positive Aura spout "eyes up" - rewallpaper your mind, ya da ya da ya da.

Well, Mr. Chambers is telling me the very same.  I took heed this morning and got outside, which got ME outside myself.  No pity party today!

It's really crazy how singing loudly, reading an uplifting page or two, a bit of exercise transforms me.  What is the Rx for your soul?

You are an inspiration my dear! Sorry I missed your call. Today has been a good one for us. I thank God for this and pray there will be more days like this. xoxo

I'm challenging myself to take "the road less travelled." And it is a challenge for me who tends to like the "path of least resistance" as well. xoxo Gretchen
