Friday is my favorite day. Yes...Friday. Now, now don't get me wrong...I love Saturdays and Sundays too...it's just that I always think the weekend is going to be longer! By the time Sunday rolls around, I realize just how short it really is. Even if it's a three day weekend...it's always too short. So, back to Friday, and the reason it's my favorite day of the week...(Wait for it...wait for it.)...it's the hope and anticipation of the weekend! On Friday, the whole weekend is ahead of us...just like the 80's song...Everybody's Workin' For the Weekend! Just think of all the projects we're gonna get done...yard work...church activities...all the chillin' and grillin'...all of the kickin' back!!! But, alas...it's really only just a couple days. I'm sorry...I didn't mean to burst your bubble. There's a quote that goes something like this; "A man spends his whole life fishing, never realizing it's not the fish he's after". For me, Friday represents the hope of tomorrow...but, at the same time...to be thankful for today. Too many times, we are so looking forward to something in the future...that we forget how to live in the present. If we start every day by asking God, "What do You have for me to do today?"...it might just be the start of something new, that you'd never before dreamed was possible.
If you've been waiting for your "ministry"...or "some day God is going to use me"...I can tell you, that He wants to use you today!
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34
"But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness." Hebrews 3:13
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." Hebrews 10:24
He's given you today...what are you going to do with it?!
