Just for today Lord

Just for today Lord

I will love through the next 12 hours and not try to tackle all of life’s problems at once.

I will improve my mind. I will learn something useful. I will learn something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

I will be agreeable. I will look my best, speak in a well-modulated voice, be courteous and considerate.

I will not find fault with friend, relative or colleague. I will not try to change or improve anyone by myself.

I will have a program. I might not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two enemies….hurry and indecision.

I will do a good turn and keep it secret. If anyone finds out, it won’t count.

I will do two things I don’t want to do, just for the exercise.

I will believe in myself. I will give my best to the world and feel confident that the world will give it’s best to me.

I was given that bookmark 16 years ago. Tonight as I searched for answers, for strength in the Word of God- it’s tattered little rectangle fell out in front of me. I was given this bookmark by a man of God- when I felt all hope was gone. When I was questioning everything, and had not a clue of my life’s direction. Finding it today reminded me afresh to inhale deeply. Inhale Him. He has all answers.

To lay back and breathe Him in. Rest in his shelter, in his arms, and in His love. If I seek him- his face. I shall find HIM. When I find HIM. I find strength

Keep giving your best to the world, even when the world fails to give its best to you.
