Today Reminder - 19 June 2012 (Short)

My prayer for you for today is that you will know what you ought to do and that you will have the courage to do it, in Jesus name.

James 4:13-17
Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” Otherwise you are boasting about your own plans, and all such boasting is evil. Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

Short - Your life is like the morning fog… This section in our scripture for today made me think for a little while. I guess you will never realise how short life truly is until you find yourself at the end of it. I believe it is like most things in life, we don’t know what we have until we don’t have it anymore. What really caught my attention is this: What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” Otherwise you are boasting about your own plans, and all such boasting is evil. Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

My dear friend, more now than ever I realise that each day we live is a gift. It is much like a gift all wrapped up, and as the day progresses we unfold and unwrap it. We can choose to see the beauty of it and share what we were given or we can see all the negativity and allow that to change our mood. You are not bound by this world instead you are a child of God, a citizen of heaven on a journey of self-discovering side by side with Jesus. You can do what people do when they are given a gift, you can share the joy…

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus

Cheers
