Just for today

What would happen if we could focus our attention on today?  Whether it is a diet or a desire to share our faith, what if we asked God to help us, just for the next 24 hours?  Isn’t a lifetime of discipline just a collection of successful days?  Isn’t it the focus on outcomes that usually become so overwhelming that we give up?  I do not think that Jesus was thinking about diet or discipline when He taught us to pray “Give us this day our daily bread”.  I do think that He knew the human heart and what it takes to move successfully through life.  Maybe He was teaching us to start with small victories and then to string them together like pearls.   What would happen if we asked God to give us what we needed for life . . .just for today?

  1. Thank you for today’s message. To focus on “one day at a time” is a battle I deal with daily. I love the daily blog and the messages that you are sending to your family. God bless you Pastor Don.
