One Day At A Time....

Psalm 31:1-3, 24 In You, O LORD, I put my trust, Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness. Bow down Your ear to me, Deliver me speedily; Be my rock of refuge, A fortress of defense to save me. For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name's sake, Lead me and guide me.

Psalm 37:3-6 Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.

Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

I have decided that every day I am going to read the above verses and try my hardest to use it as my daily motto. I want to lead by example and not exception. I want to be the kind of person that God uses to do good and not harm. I want my family (especially my nieces and nephew) to want to mimic the life I live, not because it's something to be envious of, but because they see Jesus through me and the blessings he bestows upon me.

I want to truly learn to live "One Day At A Time" trusting in Jesus that I am living the life he chose for me. One day at a time is enough...don't look back & grieve the past, it's gone...don't be troubled about the future, it has not come in the present & make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering!

In today's world influences of the devil are all around us and often temptation is like the wind blowing throughout. Our youth of today are our leaders of our tomorrow. I want to be an influence on them. I want them to trust in Jesus and learn that there is nothing wrong with standing up for Jesus, but that there is mercy and grace abundantly in taking that stand!
My prayer today: One day at a time, help me believe in what I can be and all that I am. Show me the stairway I have to climb and give me the strength with every step required. Lord, for my sake, teach me to take life one day at a time living in your will!
