Length of Days - Search for Freedom

Monday, September 16, 2013


"This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118: 24 (New American Standard Bible)

"I am so bored!" How many times have you heard that? If you have teens in your house - a lot. How can anyone be bored when there is so much to do and so much to experience?

What if this were your last day? - last day at home before moving; last day before a new job; last day before a spouse, parent, or sibling passed on to Glory; or the last day for many other turning points in our lives.

What if this were the first day of your teen years? - the first day of retirement; the first day on a new job; the first day of joy with the Lord; the first day of living free from guilt.

What if this were simply September 16 and you chose to make it special? - a tea party with a child or grandchild; a game of catch with a son or daughter; a quiet talk with your spouse; a day made special by visiting a friend.

Choose to make every day of your life a special day. Only YOU can do that for yourself. Only YOU can make you happy. Only you can truly validate your accomplishments because only you have been obedient to the Lord and fulfilled His desires for your life.

What is so special about today? Are you kidding me? To live your life in the footsteps of the Lord - isn’t just special? It’s miraculous! Now - go out and live the life God has given you. He’ll point out the guideposts along the way and you will see the God-sightings from time to time. This is a very special day! Live it like you know it is! Let us pray:

"Holy Father, Love of the world, how very precious is your name. May your kingdom come to earth and find room for even me. May your will be done in my life, that I may see your love displayed in all I do. For this day, may I catch a glimpse of Glory and see you everywhere, in the face of someone I help, in the work I do to your glory, in the eyes of someone I let help me, in my all in all. Forgive me for the days I did not see as special, when I lived for me and not for you. May I help you draw near to someone because I was willing to be the vessel of your love. On this very day, keep my eyes open to your spirit, my ears open to your word, may hands and feet open to minister to others in your name and my heart open to your love. In the name of Jesus, who showed me how thus to live, I pray. Amen"
"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine."
