Make the Most out of each Day!

The biggest trap we all fall into is taking a day in our life for granted. We get so used to waking up in the morning, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, that we simply take today for granted expecting that there will be a tomorrow. It is God who will determine when each of us has completed our journey here, and there will be no more tomorrows. 

“We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.” 1 Chronicles 29:15

 

The point of this message is to drive home the fact that tomorrow is not promised to us, even though we often assume it will come. Today, right now, is the only thing we can be assured of. That is why I want to encourage you to make the most of today. Don’t treat it as simply “another day.” The fact is each day is unique unto itself. This day can be as special as you want to make it. I know that many of you are going through some difficult times in your life, have many pressing issues that you are dealing with, fighting tremendous battles. DON’T LET THE DAY-TO-DAY TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF LIFE KEEP YOU FROM MAKING TODAY SPECIAL!

 

How do you make today special? First, you start it in prayer and the Word. Nobody should even get out of bed without talking to the Lord. Talking with Jesus should be the very first thing you do when you wake up. Personally, I don’t get out of bed until I have spent time in prayer, conversing with the Lord, and then spending time in the Word. Before my feet even hit the ground, I have had a good talk with Jesus and spent some time in His Word.

 

You can never imagine the strength, the encouragement, the peace and joy you have when you start your day with Christ and His Word. It helps you focus on the fact that no matter what may be going on in your life, no matter what the day may bring, you are not alone.

 

I pray that you will never take even one day of your life for granted again. EACH DAY IS SPECIAL! When it is over, it is never coming back, so make the most of it. God is going to hold us accountable for how we use the time that He has graciously given to us. Never forget, our purpose in this life is to serve and glorify God with our lives. We can never get so busy with our lives, so focused on what we want to do, that we forget to fulfill our purpose by serving the Lord and bringing glory to His name through our lives each day.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
