Take Charge of Your Life

It’s time to share this week’s Words for the Week … short and sweet.

You can’t control the length of your life, but you can control its width and depth. You can’t control the contour of your face, but you can control its expression. You can’t control the weather, but you can control the atmosphere of your mind. Why worry about things you can’t control when you can keep yourself busy controlling the things that depend on you?

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: There is no rainbow without rain.

  1. I once thought I could control
    my living days’ full arc,
    and could myself in Heaven enroll
    without carrying Jesus’ marque.
    A noble life was paramount,
    but well within my reach,
    and I could thus safe discount
    what the Saviour came to teach.
    And thus did I destroy my soul
    with the fell axe of pride;
    now only broken could I be whole,
    and live only if I died
    And so the road through dark despair
    rises to meet Him in the air.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
