Every single one of us have been given 24hrs each day. Whether you are the US president, a pastor, a police officer or a patient mother, we all have only 24hrs to fill. What are you doing with your 24hrs?
A lot can be accomplished or very little can be accomplished, it’s all in how you approach each day. Everyday I look for a few key things because I’ve discovered that everyday has something for me to grow in or discover that I wasn’t previously aware of.
Everyday I look for the God encounter. I want to meet with God daily and have him ‘wow’ me again in some area of my life and ministry. I want to live life with an ethos of amazement. I’m intentional about this and so I carve out specific time to meet with him. Out of the overflow of my intimacy with him, he amazes me in both small and great ways throughout the rest of the day.
Everyday I look for something to grow in. Life never ceases to provide opportunities for all of us to grow in some way or another. I want to take something away from each day that adds value to my world and that enhances my personal growth.
Everyday I look for God’s purpose. At the end of my day, I want to know for what purpose did I breathe today. Was it simply to relax and enjoy my family or was it to accomplish something in my ministry? Everyday has purpose written all over it. You just need to stop and reflect on what purpose each day is for.
As you navigate each day with God, you can see God weaving together his master plan in your life and positioning you where he wants you to be and what he wants you to do. Don’t get caught up so much in tomorrow that you miss today. Seize the day you are in and suck as much out of it as God will allow you to.
