This One Life


(Meditating on Psalm 39).

What’s so wonderful with God is that, He gives us new opportunities with each new morning that He ushers in. And in each new day as we seek first His face, He speaks to us. All we need to do is keep still and listen.

Life on earth is fleeting, like a vapor. We are reminded to know the number of our days – the days of our lives, how few they really are! How do we spend each new precious day that we are gifted with? May we apply our hearts to wisdom.

To choose to offer up praise rather than mutter complaints.

To choose to rejoice in the Lord rather than wallow in self-pity.

To choose to give thanks rather than rant.

To choose to love rather than be cold.

To choose to forgive rather than harbor resentment.

To choose to relinquish all burdens to the Lord rather than carry them.

To choose to hand over all woes to the Lord rather than live in fear.

To choose to trust the Lord rather than doubt.

To choose to be gentle rather than be harsh and unkind.

To choose to be patient when provoked.

To choose to reach out rather than withdraw oneself.

To choose to encourage rather than criticize.

To choose to listen more rather than speak more.

To choose to bless rather than envy.

To choose to pray rather than worry.

To choose to give rather than receive.

I encourage you to join in and share what you choose today? Thank you and may we all have a blessed weekend!
