Do You Say, "Good Morning, God" or, "Good God, Its Morning?"

Some people live for the weekends. That means that most of their lives are spent in drudgery. They work five days that are hardly appreciated for two days which are totally appreciated. That makes for a dismal life.

Maybe part of the reason they work for the weekends is because they have no time to do what they want during the week. They take their kids to school, work and run their kids from activity to activity. The weekend allows for some time to be spent doing just what they want to do.

Do they not like what they do during the week? Did they choose a job rather than a career? Do they have a calling or are they simply working  for money? Herein my lie the trouble. Money is never enough to satisfy. It will only cry, "More, more!"

I personally love Sundays more than any other day of the week. It is the day I get to preach the word of God to the church. I spend a good portion of the week preparing this message. I love to prepare and to deliver these messages. Each day the Lord uses His Word to change me. I am amazed at what He is doing in my life.

Each day I read the Bible and pray. Each day is a gift from God. My days on the earth are numbered. I may not die today but I will die someday (unless Jesus returns first). I have 365 days to be the age I am right now. I have so many more days behind me than I have in front of me. Each day is new for God speaks something new into my life.

Each day I see new people. These are a gift from God. Not every one of these people are pleasant but each one is a gift. Sometimes I need to minister to those who aren't so pleasant. Sometimes I need to learn from them. Even learning how not to act is learning.

Every day comes with new opportunities. I simply run into them. My engagement in those opportunities makes them worthwhile.They change me too. They make me more like Jesus.

Today is a great day. Tomorrow will be even better.

Psalm 118:24 (NIV)
24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Conoscendo perfettamente bene che non sono le nostre prediche che convertono la gente, ma Dio. Con tutto ciĆ² Dio, nella Sua suprema saggezza, ha decretato che le nostre pietose prediche del Vangelo siano parte integrale nel portare i Suoi eletti alla salvezza attraverso il Suo meraviglioso dono della Fede. E' TUTTO DA DIO.
