The Word is: CHOICES

Life is full of choices. Sometimes the right decisions are obvious, and sometimes they can be more difficult and complex. But still, there is always truth and truth is always constant. Truth does not contradict truth. God has promised that to us. We must always seek for the truth, even when it's hard. The following was written by Joseph L. Townsend (1849-1942). I have found great solace in these words at many times in my life. Now is one of those times.

Choose the right when a choice is placed before you. 
In the right the Holy Spirit guides.
And its light is forever shining o'er you
when in the right your heart confides.

Choose the right. Let no spirit of digression 
overcome you in the evil hour.
There's the right and the wrong to every question;
Be safe through inspiration's power.

Choose the right — there is peace in righteous doing.
Choose the right — there's safety for the soul.
Choose the right in all labors you're pursuing;
Let God and heaven be your goal.

Choose the right — let wisdom mark the way before.
Choose the right — and God will bless you ever more.
