Each Day is a Gift

Lord, everyday we wake up is a gift from You.Help us to see it as that. And to not spend so much time complaining, and moaning and groaning about the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s.
We are blessed and either don’t realize it or we take it for granted.
Most of us, got out of bed without any assistance.
We have the activity of our limbs. We have use of our five senses.
We have breath in our bodies.
But we complain.
This isn’t happening. Or why hasn’t this happened?
I thought I would be in this place by now. Or why am I in this place?
Where is the man or woman of my dreams? My dream job, career, house, family?
We get so busy complaining, that we don’t see, appreciate or use the blessings that we have.
I just read an article about an 18 year old who died of liver cancer after going to her prom.
That article really struck me. Don’t take life for granted.
Don’t take time or tomorrow for granted. It’s not promised us.
Make the most out of today. Don’t let your time go by being filled with anger, hurt or complacency.
God has us where we are for a reason or a season. Live the life that God has destined for you.
Filled with His love, hope and promise.
We may not be where we want to be, but we serve an almighty God who can do it all!
