In the past two weeks, my mom’s health took a critical turn. It was an intense experience. Birthday plans were postponed to attend to my mom’s health. It consists of long sleepless nights of worrying and prayer. By the grace of God, she made a tremendous turnaround. I have embraced every moment of her recovery as a blessing from God. She has decided to adopt a healthier lifestyle. I pray she will cooperate with the work God wants her to do in the heart.
What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:14-15
The verse says life is precious and delicate. Our life is an example of a mist. We can be here today and gone tomorrow. Do not be concerned about the affairs of tomorrow. Focus on the present, the joy of living for today. In the morning, when we rise, as breath feeds into our lungs, let us sing praises for what we have witnessed. Our eyes have seen a new brand day.
Even though it was a difficult situation, God has used this experience to change our hearts. I will continue to cover my family in prayer and seek after the Lord.
We cannot rewrite the past. Nor can we predict the future. We can unwrap the gift of today—the gift of being present as God has prepared.
“Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a Gift. That is why it is called the Present.”
Reflect & Pray:
Lord, Thank you for breath in my body. Thank you for every opportunity to testify of a new day. Grant me access to Your plans of the day. I do not know what to expect, but I know You can guide me through this day. Teach me to take advantage of the time to fulfill Your plans. In Jesus Name, Amen
Where can you see the presence of God in this moment? What has God placed on your heart?
