“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.”
One morning I was incredibly excited about an upcoming visit with a friend, and by midday, I was crying over the news of his death. I was on the phone with my friend Clare, coordinating our schedules to meet with our friends Luca and Carlo. We hadn’t seen them since we met on a trip the year before, and I was looking forward to giving them giant hugs and catching up on life. Not even an hour later, Carlo called to tell me that Luca had died in a car crash the night before. Suddenly, a person whose presence I already missed was gone forever. What would we do if we weren’t sure of waking up another day? Would we depend more on the Holy Spirit for love, joy, peace, and patience?
"TIME IS OUR MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE; HOW ARE WE USING IT?."
LORD, thank you for the time you have given me. Thank you for this day that I am alive and breathing the air you put in my lungs. Please forgive me for taking my life for granted. I can only boast in you. Without you, I would have nothing. Please show me all I have to be grateful for so I can sing your praise every morning.
