Welcome to my Monday Blog, my friends. I’m grateful for your time and hope you’ll be blessed in some way by the time you get to the end of my post! I looove Mondays!!
Today is the first day of the rest of our lives and to paraphrase Snoopy, “on all the other days we do not die”, just what will we do with each first day of the rest of our lives? As I’ve gotten older, I’m more aware of my immortality. I find myself making more “to do” lists than ever! Shoot, frankly, when I refer to my list and some of the absolutely must-do stuff, I feel a bit over-whelmed and ask myself, “what the heck have you been doing all this time?!” Then I’m reminded of some great advice I’ll share with you today:
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.”- Matthew 6:34
“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he as said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’.”- Hebrews 13:5
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What have you learned and received and heard and seen in me – practice these things and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
We have many choices my friends and every first day of the rest of our lives can be filled with hope. When we cherish God’s holy words and trust in His promises, not just for today, but for all our days we have left here, our Gift of Life is so much more exciting and fulfilling! WaaaaHoooo!!
My prayer for us all this week is one of faith and hope in Him, so that we are left to live each day with joy, excitement and courage in our hearts and minds. This life is not perfect, but one thing I know to be true above all else, is that He will never forsake us – Never! FAITH in Him is a very big deal.
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
