“This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24.
“We have no other time in which to live. The past is gone; the future has not arrived; we will never have any time but now. So do not wait until your experience has ripened into maturity before you attempt to serve God.” From Truth For Life Devotional by Alistair Begg
Today may seem like an ordinary day. The rush of Thanksgiving is over! We’ve all indulged more than we should have and our memories may consist of the delicious homemade pecan pie we were able to enjoy. And other things!
Thanksgiving memories aside, this morning, hubby and I decided we’d eat breakfast out. It’s his favorite meal of the day and my least. But.. I know it makes him happy, so we go. For the record, I do manage to eat! 😃
We drove to Georgetown to our favorite restaurant, only to be told that the wait was very long due to a shortage of workers. Tried going to a second restaurant to no avail. By this time we were at Plan C, so we drove back to Round Rock. On the third try, we settled for waiting—same scenario—short staffed! It’s just the craziest thing!! Worth the wait. Breakfast was good.
Maybe your day didn’t begin like ours and you’re one of those Black Friday shoppers looking for great deals on consumer goods. I tried that ONCE! Right now, I don’t think there’s anything worth the effort of fighting the crowds in that type of chaotic atmosphere. Besides, it’s cold outside!! You know for us Texans—when the temperature is below 50 degrees, we go running for our heavy coats!! 😉😃 These days, I’m opting for online shopping mostly. It’s so easy to click “PLACE ORDER.” Real easy!!
So aside from Black Friday, which I guess you’ve figured out that I dislike very much, God sees this day as one that we have each been given to make a difference in the lives of others. We do not know what tomorrow will bring. We have this moment in time and God will use us in some way if we let Him. Be on the lookout for your opportunity to serve God and others. Then, carry it through with all your might. Have a great day, everyone.
