Morning Prayer, Thursday, October 28, 2021 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: LIFE IS SHORT
Father God, what I want is to live my life in a way that is pleasing to You, never taking any of Your blessings for granted. Amen
"Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” James 4:14
“Life is short. Laugh, be grateful, help others, be happy, keep your chin up, think positive and keep your promises." As I said on yesterday, we receive blessings everyday. Some big, some small. The thing I have come to learn is that sometimes, we mishandle some of the blessings God send our way. Whether it was that dream job that you carelessly handled and ended up losing, the wonderful spouse that you took for granted one too many times, or the business you wanted but did not put your all into it and suddenly it was gone. Sometimes, because He is so merciful and good, God will send it back around our way and sometimes, when it's gone, it's gone. This life we live is short. True, someone may be in their 20's or 30's thinking, "I have a lot of years ahead of me," but COVID proved that isn't always true. None of us know what tomorrow holds. Adjust your attitude, your thinking and your way of life to live your best life today. Never take a day or a blessing for granted. When we do that, we are throwing away blessings. Be grateful for what you have because someone else out there may have prayed for the exact same thing and never received it. God saw fit to send it your way. That's a blessing. Listen, this life is short. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Do your best to enjoy every blessing that God sends your way.
