IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
The days sometimes drag, but the years pass quickly. What you do today matters, so don’t throw it away—don’t waste it. Enter each day with hope and a plan to make an impact. Invite me to lead you through the day; ask me to guide you. Better yet, pray for the courage to follow me. I will always guide you, but I want you to follow. Dare to walk with me, and let’s see what I do in and through you.
Make the most of each day, but when you fail to do so, don’t panic. You will fall short from time to time. Get used to it, but learn to respond with a new commitment to start again. Get comfortable confessing your sin and apologizing to others. Sometimes your honest response to failure can considerably influence others more than your efforts to live a sinless life. Stop trying to be perfect and relax. Follow my lead, and when you don’t, acknowledge you’ve gone the wrong way and get a re-start. You may have consequences to deal with, but I will sustain you. I love you. Let’s see what today brings.
Who in your family heritage inspires you? If that person is alive, contact them today and let them know how you feel about them. If he or she has passed away, follow up with a close family relative of the person. Let them know how valuable their parent or grandparent is to you.
