Make today count

October 19, 2009

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

--Psalm 118:24

If you thought about it, I'm sure you could come up with a list of days that you would call special—birthdays of those you love, anniversaries, etc.

But what about today? Would it make your list of special days? Well, it should!

Today is God's gift to you. What you do with this gift is so important because today is the only day that truly belongs to you!

You see, when you went to bed last night, you said good-bye to yesterday. It's gone forever. And yet, so many people pine away for yesterday and wish they could relive the days that have passed. 

There are others who live only for the future, and for what it might hold. But the Scripture only promises you one day—this day! Today is the only day that is truly yours. And if you live it the way God wants you to, it should be an amazing day.

So let me ask you, "How is your day going? What are you doing with this precious gift from God?"

Don't waste a moment of it. God has given you today to live for him, to know him better, to love him more, to do his will, to be his light in your world. So rejoice and be glad in it!

Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out

Dear Friend,

Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today!  --Jack Graham
