Every once in a while one of those little boxes will pop up on the computer screen asking the age old question: "Would you like to make (whatever the case may be) your default browser?"  Mostly the answer is "No....thanks anyway."

It appears the choice is mine. I get to pick my own default browser.Which leads me to think about the choices I make in my life.

I can choose to make gratitude my default or walk through my days fixated on the negative - complaining about my lot in life and telling God how unfair it all is.

I might decide on pride and cast humility aside in a desperate attempt to know and be known.

There are days when giving seems far too costly and selfishness is the default of choice.

I can choose to try to walk in my own strength, turning my back on the default marked grace.

That forgiveness default can be a tough one to live with when I am nursing a grudge that I hold close to my heart.

What about the life default? Will I click on the one that offers me the world, or will I choose the one that compels me to lose my life that I might gain all He has for me?

The one that I have struggled the most with is the trust default. Once clicked I give everything over to Him - all the questions, all the perceived control, all the fears and worries, all the self-sufficiency.

Perhaps it isn't a difficult choice after all.
