In this day that we are living, it's important that we believe in ourselves
as God believes in us and strive forth reaching for the dreams and goals
that we have in our hearts. We should never postpone for tomorrow what
could be done today and it is for this reason that we are to revive our
inner self and go forward with a renewed energy and accomplish all that is
in our hearts. The Bible declares in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the
thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and
not of evil, to give you an expected end.” The Lord is good, and His wish
for us is to prosper and be in health, even as our soul prospers. Be
encouraged to be the warrior that God has created you to be and strive to
reach every goal that is within you, because with God by your side, nothing
shall be impossible to you. (Romans 12:1-5) (3 John 2) (Luke 1:37)
I hope you are inspired and challenged by today's message to use this day
to be a blessing to yourself and to those lucky enough to be around you.
IN THIS DAY...
In this day I choose living not just for the sake of passing time.
I choose to take advantage of the milliseconds between my breath and my sigh.
In this day I will grasp hold of the moments I lost so many times before as
words rolled off my tongue penetrating the ears and hearts of those whom I
wanted to hurt and did.
In this day I will make up for time lost by living between my thoughts and
I will live up to my potential, which through God's Grace is unlimited.
In this day I will help someone else find the greatest secret of all. While
we spend our lives in pursuit of success and happiness, we have all that we
will ever need from the moment of conception until our last breath.
In this day I will acknowledge that I am a magnificent creation capable
of the greatest accomplishments. I am one of a kind. Never before in the
history of human existence and never again will there be another me. I
have a purpose, a mission and with that a responsibility to fulfill those
goals. The key to success is in “knowing” and “believing” that I can,
then purposefully taking action. The “knowing” is the small voice you hear
deep within that gives direction. It sparks the dreams and softens the
indignant blows that life throws at us. It is the spirit of our being
connected to the Great Power. It never goes away although many spend a
lifetime trying to block it out.
“Believing” comes once we have accepted that self esteem is not an ego trip
but a verification that you are a living miracle created by God. Although
we are all capable of grand accomplishments that can change the world, we
all succeed at various levels none less important than the next. Some
listen more intently to the voice and act upon those beliefs. Others
cautiously follow taking life step by step. Even those who do not heed
the call serve a purpose. They often serve as the best friend, the parent,
the neighbor who ignites the spark in others bound for greater goals.
In this day I will celebrate as if it was my birthday and 24 hours was my
gift. I will treasure the sunrise and save the light in my hand for
darkened days. I will fill my lungs to capacity with the sweet smell of
life and consume the colors that surround me like a meal fit for a king.
I will taste the reds and yellows of the flowers and bathe in the blues
and greens of the sky and grass. At the end of the day in the darkest
hours my soul will light the way to rest in the satisfaction of knowing I
did not waste a morsel.
Then in my last day on this earth I will leave filled with joy to a better
place knowing that I have served my purpose and completed my mission. I
will leave behind my energy that will disperse into every rock and tree
and molecule. I will become a part of the color, the light, the breath of
life for others to consume. I will not wither to the ground as failure
and serve as a pathway. I will rise with the sun to bring joy forever to
those who will dream after me. I am important. I am successful. I am
God's creation! I am alive!

Read and meditate on these scriptures:
James 4:13-15 “Come now, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go to such
and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit';
whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life?
It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
Instead you ought to say, If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”
Psalm 34:11-15 “Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the
fear of the LORD. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days,
that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking
guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes
of the LORD are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry.”
Psalm 103:2-5 “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who
redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness
and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy
youth is renewed like the eagle's.”
Psalm 20:6-9 “Now know I that the LORD saveth His anointed; He will hear
him from His Holy Heaven with the saving strength of His right hand. Some
trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of
the LORD our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and
stand upright. Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
