Today is the Day


Today is a day we have awesome choices available to us. Life with choices is amazing, don’t you think? We could be relegated to duties and tasks from the time that we wake up to the time that we lie down and even have those times dictated or assigned to us.


Glory hallelujah to God, the Creator of this universe, who holds all power in His hands. In His infinite wisdom, He did not feel the need to take away our ability to choose. He created us to be free-will agents, made with purpose and privilege I might add. Now that’s some serious creating.


So how will you spend your day of free choice? Will you be a loud gong or a clanging cymbal? Will you walk through your day as a valueless individual, second-guessing yourself all along the way? Will you walk in some faith and a little bit of hope? Heaven forbid.


I encourage you today to exist in the absolute truth that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God, created with a good plan for your life. So choose today to serve Him by walking in your value and divine purpose of loving others and representing Him everywhere your feet are standing.   While you’re at it, enjoy your day!
