You are reading this, so I know that God has blessed you with another day. No matter what your circumstance, you have been given the opportunity to:
Have one more day to grow in faith and get to know Jesus in a more intimate way than you knew Him yesterday;
Breathe in the essence of God, allowing His Holy Spirit to envelop your whole being;
Give thanks for the air that you breathe, the feelings that you feel, your senses which allow you to interact with God and the people in your life;
Break free from hanging on to the bitterness and pain that is holding you in bondage…FORGIVE…both yourself and others;
Pray for all the people that the Lord places on your heart, especially including those that make you feel uncomfortable, or those that have hurt you or are living in darkness;
Share Jesus continuously by showing love to those around you…pray for the Holy Spirit to open your eyes and heart, and you will be guided to the people and the ways you can share His Saving Love and Grace with them;
Enjoy and thank God for the goodness and wonder of the blessings in your life…stop and take time to remember and acknowledge as many as you can. Create a never ending mental list of gratitude;
Offer your daily crosses to the Lord – the boredom and struggles of daily life, your pain, frustration, and sufferings…unite them with the suffering of Jesus in atonement for your sins and the whole world.
Enjoy and savor One More Day…for you are One More Day closer to a wondrous and unfathomable eternal life with Your Father.

You are so right! Thanking God always for the “one more day” to enjoy life on earth and yet look forward to receiving my reward in heaven. He’s awesome like that. Love you, Sis!

What a beautiful reminder, AMEN! I am seriously going to start paying attention and listen to the Lord’s whispers during my day. You truly inspire me!

Your posts inspire me and so many…you were specially chosen by the Lord to touch many souls. I know your journey is difficult, and impossible for anyone else to even imagine. However you are being carried and loved by Jesus:-) Sometimes I think that we are allowed to expereince pain for the conversion of souls. You remain in my prayers for the Holy Spirit to heal you, inside and out, and for His spirit of love to envelop your whole being.

I have always felt loved by Jesus. And I’ve always felt that he is carrying me through my chronic pain journey. I’ve never really thought about being chosen by The Lord, however I must confess I love that you brought this to my attention. Ive really thought about this and I believe you are right. Thank you Bernadette from the bottom of my heart! He has indeed chosen me.

Great Post! As I was reading this I was thinking, “There is always so much we can do, which takes no time at all truly.” For some reason, we will ignore it and go on with something else.” Thanks for sharing this and God Bless, SR

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. You’re so right, there is always so much we can do. Imagine how the world would change if we all really listened to the Lord’s whispers during our day:-)
God bless you! Bernadette
