Have you ever awakened in the morning and think to yourself that today has to be different? The same old, same old isn’t going to cut it anymore. There’s a freshness in the soul that needs to be satisfied. There’s a longing that just won’t let go of the idea that there has got to be more to this life for me. It’s a stirring that is ready to step beyond the norm of the day to capture the essence of what we can be today.
It is easy to go along with each day fulfilling the status quo. That’s the road most traveled for the majority. But, to dare to journey down another path, walking on the road less traveled – to stretch oneself out of their comfort zone, and decidedly be more than the day before – takes courage that many are not yet ready to wield. “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people . . .” (1 Peter 2:9a, KJV), in other words, you and I are called to live in a special way each and everyday. In a way that will “shew for the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light,” (1 Peter 2:9b, KJV).
There are days when we don’t feel confident, and yet, we can be. There are days when we don’t feel like serving, and yet again, we can. Because of who He is in our life and His indwelling presence residing in each of us, we can be more. We can do more. We can have more. It all starts with today. Day by day, step by step. That’s all it takes. We are not trying to do the impossible, but what we are doing is reclaiming today.
This online devotional seeks to help. Everyday is not the same. Everyday needs its own help to make it through, and prayerfully, by the grace of God, we will make it through. Start today! Take back today! What everybody else is doing is not okay for me. See what God’s “Word For Life Says. . .” to you today and get ready to make a change.
God Bless You!
