Every Day Is A Gift

I stand at a crossroads each morning.
We all do.
I choose to make the most of the day
or let the day get the most of me.

Many days I just let the current of life take me.
The problem in doing so often leaves me floundering, drowning.

I was recently challenged by three questions.
So simple, yet profound.

1. What do I need to SEE today?
I often walk blindly through my day.
Do you?

2. Is there a hurt I need to identify?
Who needs the love of Christ today?

3. If I could change one thing to make my sphere of influence (today) a better place, what would it be?
My answer to that question changes each day.  Sometimes I need to offer forgiveness.  Sometimes I need to offer physical help.  
Sometimes I need to be still.
These three questions were offered as a way 
to seek God's direction for my day.  
What if I asked them from a spiritual standpoint?
What if I asked  as a wife?
What if I asked as a mother?
What if I asked as a friend?

I don't think the tide would carry me if I would intentionally begin my day seeking His direction.

What a great way to start the day! So much better to have Him in the boat rather than being washed away by the tide. . . .

I am sitting at my desk about to begin the day with my 5th grade students. I am so glad the Lord directed me to this post. I will write these down. I so often flounder or walk aimlessly through the day.. Thanks for the good word.
