Happy Hump-day, friends!
I wanted to share something with you that I hope will encourage you like it has encouraged me.
I’ve been feeling really stressed lately with all that we have to do around our house and in life in general. Because of that, I seem to be complaining more than I should.
I am guilty of not “living in the day.”
My boys have the children’s devotional, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, and I loved the devotional for today, April 11th.
This devotional book is written from the point of view of Jesus. (I made a few insertions of my own in red.)
Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
I press on toward the goal to win the prize
for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
I have made this day for you. Be careful not to complain about anything in it ~ not your English test (or unwritten post), not your frizzy hair (or the unwanted pounds you’ve put on), not even the weather ~ because I am the Creator of this day. Instead, decide to be happy today. Open your eyes, and choose to look for all the blessings I have hidden in this day.
Then live today ~ just today. Don’t think about mistakes you’ve made in the past. Don’t worry about what will happen tomorrow. You will only end up wasting today. I want you to enjoy abundant Life in My Presence ~ today!
I pray today, that you and I will look for God’s blessings and enjoy the day that He has created for us.
