ONE DAY AT A TIME

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.”
Corrie Ten Boom

As each day passes, I have come to realize that every one of them is a blessing from above.  Not because tomorrow will be any better or worse than today, but because it’s another time of God’s grace for me to share His wonderful message.  Our purpose in life is to serve God and others and each new day will make that possible.

God tells us not to worry about tomorrow – that tomorrow will take care of itself.  If we adopt that truth, we’re opening doors to more and more of those occasions.  God has already determined what will happen today and tomorrow and the rest of our lives.  He’s drawn the blueprint for every person that ever walks the earth. He knows us so intimately that He is aware of our thoughts, our words and what we do.  That shouldn’t frighten us, but give us a solid hope that He is our greatest supporter.  He walks with us all the way through eternity.

Yet, even as easy as it seems, we continue to worry.  It’s in our human nature to do so.  We have been blessed with minds that try to reason things out, to make decisions, to solve problems. The world tells us that we should use those talents to build our portfolios, our work record, our successes in life.  God wants us to use our gifts as well, but with hearts that are not self serving.

Each day is a gift – especially when we grow old – but also throughout our lives.  From the first breath we take until the last, we have a future planned by God.   Today why not join me in taking each day as a wonderful gift from Him.  Thank Him for your life.  Praise Him for His intervention in it.  Trust that He has made it possible for you to live in paradise with Him.  Have faith that He never breaks His promises and His plans for your future are always for your good.

 

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. I find it difficult to take one day at a time, but I’m getting better at it. 🙂

      I think we’re all guilty, but the sooner we realize that God had our back, the easier it gets. You will continue to get better at it.❤️❤️

    Thank you for your daily dose of wisdom. As our son is struggling with returning psychological problems in TN – just maintaining his employment for the present, I have been cut to the core in my latest readings, seeing how I fall short. But your post today, at least this one, has added some clarity for my own personal growth. I need to be more structured in my prayer and Bible study – cutting out the excuses of busyness, and that means that each day I have to set aside more time, not fit God in when I have a moment. Maybe that’s why our brother Wally backed away from the blog for a while, but I believe that I have the time, just not using it effectively. Starting Friday afternoon, expect a large dose of George Muller and Charles Spurgeon, but at this point, I haven’t organized it.
