A New Day Dawning
Choose today whom you will serve . . . but as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.(Joshua 24:15)
When we rise, we must each choose the day’s direction.
Choice 1: It’s 5:36 a.m. and the alarm is sounding . . . already. The day’s burdens seem overwhelming and I am defeated before my feet even hit the floor. I don’t see the beautiful sunrise—I only perceive obstacles and problems. Today will be a hard day. . . .
Choice 2: It’s 5:36 a.m. and the alarm is ringing. As I awake, I am aware of how much I have to be thankful for. God is present and in control, and I choose to trust God’s love. I see the beautiful sunrise, and focus on the new day and its possibilities. Many responsibilities vie for my attention, so I begin the day with prayer, telling God my concerns and asking for his peace, joy, and guidance.
God’s plan is for us to live fully and abundantly, freed by his love. Will you serve God and receive his gift of life, or go it alone in your own limited strength? Choose life today!
Celebrate the precious gift of life!
