How much control do we have with or about our life- What can we actually accomplish in the time we have- Well,,,, we can do anything we set our minds too,,,, but we can only do it one day at a time-
I have read somewhere that God gave us life but he gave it to us as packets,,,, each packet is one day- Each morning is a new beginning as we open a new packet that contains all that day has to offer and at the end of the day that packet is gone !!
There is a song that covers all this pretty well- Its called One Day at a Time Sweet Jesus – Here is a part of that song,,,
“One day at a time sweet Jesus, That’s all I’m asking of you, Just give me the strength, To do every day what I have to do, Yesterday’s gone sweet Jesus, And tomorrow may never be mine, Lord, help me today, show me the way, One day at a time “
So what can we control,,,, Today !!! That is what we have to work with- We can’t change anything that happened yesterday (as in actual yesterday) and we have no control over tomorrow until it becomes today and today is lost to yesterday !!
We can dream about tomorrow, hope for tomorrow, plan for tomorrow, pray for tomorrow and wish for tomorrow,,,, but we can’t do anything with tomorrow until it becomes today !!
Looking at it like this,,,, it should become a high priority to start what we want to accomplish,,, Today,,, because we don’t know or have any control over tomorrow,,, today !!! As the truth in the song says,,,, “Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never to mine ”
With all that is happening all around the world each day, it is becoming painfully apparent that we have very little control of today becoming tomorrow !!!
So the long and short of all this ??? Well, I would suggest that we quit being a,,, “put it off” “wait until tomorrow” “there will be time later” person !!!!
If you want to tell someone you love them,,, do it today !!!- If you want to write a book,, start it today !!! If you want to run a race,,, start training today !!! If you need to tell someone you are sorry,,, do it today !!! If you need to play with your kids,,, play with them today !!! If you are desiring to find out about or seek Jesus for forgiveness and salvation,,, do it today !!!
We only have today that is a bit in our control- I would guess that most of the people that passed on today,,, didn’t think they would pass on yesterday,,, and the people that may pass on tomorrow,,, don’t think they will today
Make Everyday Count for What You Want to Be or Do,,, ONE (EACH) DAY AT A TIME !!!
God Bless !!!!
