Choose the right, always

Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God, and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love. 

~ Doctrine and Covenants 6:20 ~

As we continue to stand a little taller in recovery. As we begin to embrace our journey and work toward a healthy lifestyle; we come to realize that choices are placed before us. We want to be true to our convictions. We now understand what is right and what is wrong. We know what we are doing. Recovery is the proper thing that begins to restore us to sanity. We discover our strength to engage in the right cause. Therefore, we want to be diligent, faithful, and true. This only comes when we choose the right, always.

Latter-day saint youth, and adults, sing a beautiful (and simple) song:

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! Choose the Right! let wisdom mark the way before. In it’s light, choose the right! And God will bless you evermore.

The choices we make determine the path we take through recovery. Our decisions either are moving us toward healing, wholeness, and overall wellness; or, it is leading us back toward destruction, addiction, and unhealthy living. We grow in wisdom as we consistently make the right choices. We confide and walk within the light of grace and truth our recovery brings. We find blessings in ways we may never have fathomed.

Today’s Thoughtful Meditation

I am committed to my recovery program by choosing the right always. Recognizing that my decisions have an impact on my life, and the life of those around me. As I progress forward, striving to stand a little taller, I will make a consistent habit of making right choices.
