Day to Day, Every Day
Be Strong, Be Well — Wednesday, November 4, 2020
As I begin writing this article for tomorrow, the polls are just opening for the election of our lifetime. By the end of this day, current events will be old news, as you read this on Wednesday.
Our hope and intentions should be to keep the same mindset and attitude we have today, maintained tomorrow—from day to day, every day.
We should saturate our prayers to God with praise and thankfulness. Regardless of what’s in store for us in the outcome of this election, the pandemic, the economy, world affairs, and our health or those we love, we must remember we are the precious and beloved children of the Almighty God and Father in heaven. Nothing that happens today or any other day will ever change this truth.
We have a tendency to get lost in our immediate circumstances and get stuck in our tunnel vision. How thankful we are to know God sees the bigger picture. He’s in control of it. Yes, our present circumstances need our attention and decisions, but may we never forget to draw strength from our Benevolent God, who takes great pleasure in seeing to our needs day to day, every day.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). —Chris
