Pulled from a daily devotional:Sometimes we come to an unhappy place in our lives. If we examine ourselves on those days, we will most likely discover that the things that make us unhappy are the fruit of the choices that we made earlier.
Today can be a new start. I think God gave us twenty-four-hour days because He knew that was all we could handle. His mercies are new every morning (see Lamentations 3:22-23). You can start over this morning and live today for the Lord. Determine to follow wherever God leads you, and do whatever He tells you to do. You can expect better tomorrows when you live right today.
One thing I’ve kind of lost track of in the last two weeks is living each day to the fullest. Before this point, I would often send simple messages to people (often random friends) stating Happy Monday or Tuesday or whatever day it was. I would typically get a response back like “Thanks!”, but on occasion I would get someone asking why I sent them that. To those people I would tell them that each day we wake, we should take full advantage of the opportunities the Lord has given us. He chose to give us more time to impact others lives. We should celebrate these opportunities. As I rebuild my faith in the Lord, I think this outlook will grow exponentially. I’m thankful for what I have today.
