it's a new day for great choices


Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak about his mysterious plan concerning Christ.

Every day has endless opportunities for you and for me.  Often the question we have to answer is who we will focus on.  It really is easy to focus on meeting our own needs or seeking our own pleasure, but that is not what God says is best for us.  Think about it…

It is a new day.
Opportunities will abound.
Missing each is very easy.
Seizing them, doing something isn’t easy.
Whether the sky is bright or grey,
Plenty of chances await our action.

It is a new day.
Faces all around.
Seeing each takes but a minute.
Looking in to each heart is very hard.
Whether a smile or a frown,
Embrace each child of God.

It is a new day.
Focusing on self makes us go down.
Sadness, depression are plentiful.
Pushing past takes huge effort.
Whether forward or back,
The choice is ours to make.

It is a new day.
To our great God belong many crowns.
Giving Him glory adds to life much joy.
We can widen the road for many to join.
Whether a word or an action,
May our lives point much to Him.

I know, it is not a great poem, but I hope you get what I am trying to say.  Today there are lots of choices, yet I challenge us to see the faces that come with those challenges.

One may need a kind word.  Another may need some time or someone to help carry a box.  One might be ready to hear what is on your mind.  Another might be in need of your silence.

The opportunities are ahead of us.  Make great choices today and make a difference!
