The Gift Of Today


Certainly, The Lord has been good to each of us. The Lord has allowed us to see another day, a day that was not promised to us, but a day that The Lord has given to us by His grace and mercy. Every morning that we arise is a blessing from The Lord. When we went to sleep last night, we may have expected to wake up this morning, but it was only by God’s grace that we see another day. The Scripture reminds us, I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me. I encourage you today to give God praise for allowing you to see another day. You laid down last night and The Lord kept you while you were sleeping. You do not know what The Lord kept you from while you were sleeping, but He had His hand of love and protection was over you as you rested, and you should thank Him for keeping you through the night. All the ups and downs of yesterday are gone, and The Lord has given you new hope, joy, and peace of this day. Praise God for today and remember that just as He sustained you through the night, The Lord will sustain you through this day. I am grateful that The Lord watched over me as I slept last night, and I am grateful that He has given me a brand new day filled with His grace and mercy. Since I will praise The Lord for the gift of today, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”



Thank you Lord for waking me us this morning. Thank you for giving me another chance and another day. Thank you for watching over me as I slept last night, and thank you for sustaining me. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
