So here we are, May already here and the year well on it's way. What a blessing to see the months progressing in stately procession, each following faithfully after the other. And the amazing thing is, we are still alive to see it. Have you ever wondered if you will see another day dawn? I have. There is a scripture that says "His mercies are new every morning." How often have I clung to that scripture when everything around me was darkness, how often have I awoken in the morning with a grateful heart for just one more day. "Oh ye of little faith, do you not know that my love is everlasting and my hand is not unable to save, even you."
The amazing thing about Jesus was his unconquerable positive attitude. Have you ever thought about just how positive his reassurances are? God loves you! Yes he said that. I, for my part, can't think of a more positive statement. If God loves me, then how can I worry about what is to come, things out of my control, things of tomorrow, not today. So let me walk through life dealing with only one day at a time for even the hairs of my head have been counted and God himself will not let me fall to the ground, not without his permission.
Does my testing stretch me to the limit? of course it does, but by carrying on regardless my perseverance will, in time, bring a reward that will be an example to others, those who need encouragement, and there are plenty.
When going through tough times, my motto is, "Lord give me the strength to carry me through one day at a time, for this too shall pass." For the Lord disciplines a favorite son.
Do you believe that God loves you? Do you believe you can control what the future will bring?
