TODAY… an encouragement to the simple soul.

Dear Friend,

The surest foundation you can build for yourself today is a personal walk with Christ. When you have a consistent personal relationship with God, He makes available to you His path to life. Understanding your bearing and direction through the compass of the Word leads you to godliness and excellence in life.

Our lives should not just be composed of a monotonous routine called everyday. If every second is spent in pursuit of God’s purpose, life will be much more interesting.

I agree with Eleanor Roosevelt when He said Yesterday is history, the future is a mystery, but today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the present. Each day is God’s gift to us. It is given to us so that we can discover more of Him: unravel purpose a little more and walk a step further in the light of the truth while gazing ahead at fulfillment.

A day lived without at least a crawl forward or a commendable leap ahead is real bad. That’s why there has to be a plan in the morning and a critical evaluation before sleep at night. The purpose of this evaluation is for amendment. Walk wisely in the light of this truth. Most people look ahead to a brighter tomorrow, forgetting that tomorrow’s result is a product of today’s decisions.

In the Olympic athletic games, the recorder waits behind the finish line, with a wreath for the athlete that makes if to the finish line. A pack of glorious crowns await you at the end of life’s journey, if you dare to make it to the finish line and breast the tape.

But God is different from the athletic official in that He doesn’t just wait at the finish line, leaving you all alone to run the race. He runs alongside you, helping you along the way, giving you strength when you are weak, encouragement in trying times and wisdom for everyday decisions, both small and big. He works to get you back on track when you trail off.

But it depends on you to obey him moment by moment.

So please do obey. And you’ll finish strong, for you are made for his glory (Ephesians 5:15. Psalms 32:8).
