This is the day that the Lord has made,
let us be glad and rejoice in it.
Just for today, I will enjoy each moment to the fullest and try not to tackle my whole life’s problems at once.
Just for today, I will try to improve my mind by learning more than I know; I will read God’s Word faithfully for it is my source of wisdom and strength. I will be particularly sensitive to those Scriptures that require personal obedience, corrective action, and greater commitment.
Just for today, I will be agreeable, try to look my best and make sure my words are ’seasoned with grace.’
Just for today, I will not find fault or try to change or improve anyone – except myself.
Just for today, I will have a plan and a goal. I might not follow them exactly but I will have them nonetheless. By doing that I will save myself from two enemies – hurry and indecision!
Just today, I will develop my character. I will do someone a good turn and keep it secret; if anyone finds out it will not count.
Just for today, I will do something I don’t naturally want to do, thereby train my spirit to rule my flesh and my will to rule my emotions.
Just for today, I will not be afraid to love or to risk; I will take steps of faith that stretch me beyond my present comfort level, try to enjoy all God’s blessings, and believe that every seed I sow in His Kingdom will be multiplied back to me many times over.
