“Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” I know this is a cliche that we’ve heard so many times, but honestly, my Friends – Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
The next 24 hours can be used purposefully and beneficially, or it can be wasted. You can use it to learn something new, to meditate on God’s Word, or to do that “four letter word” – WORK! Few people today consider “working” to be an honor. They do everything they can to get out of working. How about you? Would others say that you’re a hard worker? Will you lay your head on your pillow tonight in sweet rest, knowing that you had a profitable day? Or are you guilty (I know I am!) of wasting time. Do you spend more time on social media or playing games than you do in God’s Word? Will the things that you’ll do today make you a better person? Will you be a blessing to others or will you selfishly spend today on yourself?
Today, you have a choice. Today can be the start of something amazing – something wonderful! You have such great power for you’ve been given today, and today is the first day of the rest of your life. Simply blessed, Courtney
