One Day At A Time

God created us in His own image. He created us for a purpose… to glorify Him. Sounds like a pretty big task. There is really no way to pull that off on our own. First of all we have to have a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus. It’s only then that the Holy Spirit can enter our hearts and make us useful to Him. So many times I’ve heard that God has a unique purpose for each of us to fulfill… something that only ‘we’ as an individual can do. I would often wonder how can I fulfill my purpose in my life… what has God called me to do? I was looking at the ‘big picture’… and it overwhelmed me. But, it’s not my ‘whole’ life that I need to be concerned about; I need to concentrate on today, just today. What is His purpose for me for ‘this’ day?? Every morning I ask Him…”okay, what’s the plan for today”? Do I encourage someone today? Who is hurting, who needs a ‘pick me up’? Who needs a hug, or just a simple smile? Who really needs prayer? Who needs to be understood? Who needs a helping hand? Who needs a little compassion? I don’t have to go in search of opportunities, He always brings them to me. It’s exciting to know there are SO many ways we can fulfill God’s purpose in our life… one day at a time!
