Each day I live
I have the opportunity to choose
Will I serve the Lord
Or will I serve myself
Will I yield and bend to the Lord’s will
Or will I be stiff necked and unbending
Will I seek the Lord
Or will I pursue my own interests
Will I love the Lord
Or will I love this world and things which are perishing
Will I invest my time reading God’s Word
Or will I waste time on the foolish things of this world
Will I come boldly before the throne of grace in prayer
Or will I choose to grumble and complain
Do I want to hear God’s commendation
Or do I desire man’s approval
Will I choose to glorify God in all things
Or will I seek to glorify myself
Each day I have the opportunity to choose
Choose this day Whom I will serve
