2 Timothy 1:9
I’m grateful for today. Another day I did not deserve, another day that I did not earn, another day that You chose to gift to me. Thank You Father. Before You created me, human life, plants and animals, this planet and galaxies far and near—You already knew what You were going to do and which of Your children You would call to serve, and how they would serve. All of this is too much for me to comprehend and I can accept this. I just want to say thank You Father for everything. Amen.
Looking at the history of the human race, reflect on the ups and downs that God has steered His children through. Think about the leaders that He’s brought to serve and guide us. Be warmed by the thought of our Savior Jesus Christ. We love because God first loved us. We forgive because God forgives us. We trust because Jesus showed us how. We give because we receive. Imagine what else God has planned for us. Live today fully, it’s a gift.
