For Today

I look back upon this day, Lord, and I thank You for being with me. When I awoke this morning, I felt You near, urging me to be positive and look for the good in things. Through the day, You reminded me to seize the moments and use them to do Your will. When weariness set in, thank You for helping me press forward, be responsible, and not put things off. Someone crossed my path. He needed an encouraging word and a prayer offered up for help. Thank You for urging me to be alert and tuned to hear and recognize Your voice. Later today, You calmed my heart when hard feelings could have brewed. You sealed my lips and changed my stubborn ways to patience and kindness. Thank you for helping me love and forgive. Thank you for the patience that you give each and every moment that my children is not behaving well, but You reminded me of teaching them in Your Word and I cannot do it without You. It's evening now. I cannot take this day back, it is gone forever. The good and the bad, Lord. Thank You for it all. I look toward a new day tomorrow in You, Let me seize it for Your glory.

In Jesus name, Amen.

This is the day which the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 (KJV)

hi joy.
amen to that. i am always on my toes when i know that someone has insulted me or has said a few words that i dont really like. what i do most of the time is to just keep quiet and not act at that moment of time. some people think that i dont know how to stand up for myself, but i believe that what comes around goes around and that person will be dealt with by God.
I praise God for this gift of patience. without it i dont think i would become who i am today. i would not know who am i if i just let turbulence and impatience control me.
with this i give Him praise and glory.
