Have you noticed that when you wake up in the morning you are just fine until you start to think? The other morning I woke up fine and was pretty much ready to get out of bed without any particular effort and then I began to think. The first thing that came into my mind was the ice cream that I had mixed with peanut butter the night before. Why would I think about that at this time of the morning? It had nothing what so ever to do with breakfast and then I started to think about going to work. My mood was now beginning to develop in my mind, a blue funk was heading in like rain clouds. Then I received a message in my mind that said “did I not save your life twice? Did I not heal you from cancer and have you not enjoyed 20 years without reoccurrence? Two years ago did I not heal your mind and body when you fell 8 feet from the attic and suffered a fractured skull and several subdural hematoms? Each day that you live is a gift. The day is the present that I have allowed you to enjoy. I felt so convicted. Did my life belong now to me or did it belong to God? Do I live to please myself or do I live my life as a thank you note to God for His gift to me? My day was now set before me and I would unwrap my day with delight and pleasure and sharing the contents of my gift with others with a thankful heart.
May God bless your daily gift.
