"Today is a gift from God.
How you use it is your gift to Him."
I have this little bookmark I use in my Oswald Chambers devotional "My Utmost for His Highest". It is kind of worn and has teeth markings in it from my cat who always seems to want attention when I am having quiet time. I'm not sure but she might have a little bit of the devil in her:)
Anyway I was reminded again last night why I keep this bookmark. The phrase is something I need to be reminded of daily. It is easy for me to remember that each day is a gift from God but the second part of the phrase is hard for me to grasp most days.
The choices I make each day, the attitude I have towards others, and my actions are all ways for me to glorify and praise my Lord. And no matter what the day brings how I live in it is most important.
