Psalm 40:5 – Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
Dearest Friends – We all have but one life to live, how will we live it? The choice is ours each day. We can get up with anticipation of a glorious day or have a defeated attitude before our feet even touch the floor. We can speak with positive words, encouraging words, and share the love of God, or we can flood our atmosphere with negative energy simply by choosing to speak discouraging words born of negative thoughts. It is my prayer that these words of inspiration will motivate you this day to determine to have a glorious life and be all you can be through faith in Jesus. May these inspiration words be a light shining on every reader, perhaps my own soul glow, showing that God is love and life can truly be beautiful but it does not happen without right choices, ordering our conversation aright, and above all right thinking.
Scripture says in Psalms 118:24 – This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Beloved, if it is a day the Lord made, it must be good, how can we not but rejoice? Yes, another day to see the sunshine again, another day to help our brother or save a lost soul, is a day to rejoice and be glad. Even in sorrow and turmoil, with God’s help, we will be able to see the bright side and rejoice. Be joyful for the opportunity to seek the Lord, to serve Him and to share His love today. We are not promised tomorrow, dear ones, life is to be lived to the fullest today. What you leave behind is not what is engraved on a stone monument, but what is woven into the lives of others. Have a positive affect on someone’s life today (Timothy Davis).
A recent Facebook post by Timothy Davis also stated “You’ve got a lot of choices in life to pick from. If getting out of bed in the morning with a frown on your face is one of them, pick again!! No worries!!” Yes, a beautiful day or a beautiful life is not found in the abundance of material goods we acquire, the success we achieve, or worldly fame. A beautiful day and a positive outlook are blossoms of the budding good attitude we chose this morning on arising. The blessings in life that carry us through are the blessings we find in serving others. There is just something about giving of ourselves to help others, putting others’ needs before our own, that creates in us a feeling of satisfaction, an overwhelming feeling of peace and serenity. The quality of each precious day we are given depends largely on how we allow our light to shine before men. The light we allow to shine before men is the essence of who we are, it is a soul glow if you will. This light can show not only the path you are on but can beckon the way to others that have perhaps gotten disoriented in their darkness or distress. Thus, your light is a priceless treasure, my friends, when used to edify others.
Scripture says in Psalms 107:8 & 9 – Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. If you get up in the morning counting your blessings you will be amazed at the difference it makes. If you arise with a song of praise on your lips, a prayer in your heart, a thankful attitude coupled with a grateful spirit, you will bless all you meet. Your life will be as a beacon shining on a hilltop, a lighthouse in troubled seas. People around you will see the glow of the Spirit on your face, the love of Jesus will permeate every aspect of your life, and they will want this for their own lives. The joy of the Lord will be your strength and each day will be seen as another opportunity to walk in faith and victory, to do all as unto the Lord.
In His Love,
