It’s time for us to do something.
If not now then when?”-Matthew West from the song DO SOMETHING.
So many times I find myself putting of the things I could do today and saying I will do them “later”. Then, that “later” ends up never coming. Who am I to say that I can do ANYTHING tomorrow? Only God knows the future. I should be focusing more on making the best of today and leave tomorrow to him. “What can I do to glorify God today?” -I should be asking myself this question every morning. Yet I choose to waste my time and be idle. The time we have here is so precious. We only get one shot at each day; after today passes there is now way for me to rewind and make more of it. So why don’t I treasure it?
"Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit’ - yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.’ As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin."- James 4:13-17
Thank you for giving me today. Help me be more focused on today and guide me through every second of it. Put a fire in my heart so intense that the moment people see me they see You. Please help me fight the temptation to be lazy and any other temptation I run into throughout the day. Thank you for my family, friends, and all the blessings you pour out for me everyday. I love you.
I say these things in your name,
