I CHOOSE GENTLENESS…..

            Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle.
            If I raise my voice, may it be only in praise.
            If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer.
            If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.

I CHOOSE SELF-CONTROL…..
            I am a spiritual being….
            After this body is dead, my spirit will soar.
            I refuse to let what will rot, rule the eternal.
            I choose self-control. I will be drunk only by joy.
            I will be impassioned only by my faith.
            I will be influenced only by God.
            I will be taught only by Christ.
            I choose self-control.

Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness. 
Faithfulness. Gentleness. and Self-Control. 
To these I commit my day.
If I succeed, I will give thanks

If I fail, I will seek His grace.
And then, when this day is done,
I will place my head on my pillow and rest.
