Dealing with the issues that are peculiar to our life is difficult.  The things over which we have no control from heredity, environment, choices of others, demonic attacks, and even our own good and bad choices have brought us to this good moment.  These influences are not the final things that shape us.  We deal with what has been dealt us by the grace of God and by the choices we now make.  Lord grant us Your wisdom and help!

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants.” Deuteronomy 30:19 (NASB).
