Who is influencing your choices today?
There is a voice telling you:
- You’re not good enough.
- Don’t take the risk.
- It’s too late.
At the same time, another Voice is saying:
- You are sufficient through My sufficiency.
- You can do all things that I have called you to do.
- I will strengthen & empower you to fulfill My purpose.
- You are ready for anything & equal to anything through Me.

You have the power to choose life!
