The Word of God

We Always Have A Choice


Reflection on Mass Reading for July 21, 2021

Theme for July 2021: Why Does God Test Me?

“This is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat.” Some researchers have discovered that the average person makes up to over 200 different food choices every day. This would include the types of foods, the time it is eaten, and the company’s places. With so many opportunities to nourish ourselves physically, is it no wonder that there are equally as many –if not more- opportunities to feed our souls? The answer is an astounding YES!

“But some seed fell on rich soil, and produced fruit, a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold. Whoever has ears ought to hear.” One of the more elusive tests that we must endure in this earthly pilgrimage is that of selecting thoughts and ideas that we allow to take up space in our lives. We eventually become the result of all the choices we make. When we choose God, we choose life, not just a level of peace and understanding in this earthly life but also a great shot at eternity.

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control the way you think about all the events. You always have a choice. You can choose to face them with a positive mental attitude.” Roy T. Bennett
