Following a rather mixed weekend, I have gotten up today thinking so much about my life.
I owe eveything to my Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ and I hope my life radiates at least a portion of that gratefulness to Him without sounding boastful and haughty!
I am learning to ask God to grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.
Not such an easy lesson at times of hardship and struggle, be that inner or physical. However, I must always look to him for my measure of grace for the day ahead and nothing more or less. God only gives enough for that day. Remember the Israelites? Manna in the desert was given for that day only!!
Having been through a difficult weekend of tooth pain and a cancelled anniversary celebration , I came to see how easy it is for the enemy to throw ugly horrendous darts at me, lies that can accumulate quickly, masses of deception bombarding my grey matter , as when am not prayed up I am an easy target…as are most of us am sure…but God will not be mocked. As I turned in my lowest hour to Him, he restored me and I drew strength from His grace and mercy.
As you enter each new day, ask God to strengthen and use you. You can be sure that as you look back on your day, you’ll praise and glorify the Lord as you realize what He has enabled you to do.
( I ) can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. —Philippians 4:13
Lord, give me strength for this day’s task,
Not for tomorrow would I ask;
At twilight hour, oh, may I say,
“The Lord has been my guide today.” —Nillingham
