WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Scripture reminds you that, the power of God…has saved us and called us with a holy calling, but not according to his own purpose and grace…revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ who abolished death and brought life and immorality to light through the gospel…(2 Timothy 1: 9-10; NKLV). You must therefore endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:3).

We all begin each day in search of something because we have hopes and dreams; when we place all of our cares in the master’s hands we will be able to accomplish what is purposed. From the God who cares more than you can even begin to imagine, today is your gift, yesterday is past, tomorrow is a hope, but the moment you’re experiencing now is yours.

Sharing encouragement, spreading laughter and joy nourishes your own spirit and what you release to the universe comes back to you.

For this day, this moment in time, allow it to be well spent in acts of gratitude and thanksgiving because it is a gift.

As you journey, remember that the day is filled with possibilities, take time to explore those areas of life that encourages growth, strength, and courage, determined to fight the good fight of a soldier well trained in godly living and principles that are sure to bring you in line with all possibilities. TODAY IS A GIFT BUT YOU MUST STAY IN THE RACE!

  1. beautiful Post…

      Thank you my friend, I truly appreciate your beautiful thoughts on the work the Lord has provided us to share with His children.

  2. Amen and Amen! Each day on this earth is a gift filled with opportunities to live, love, prosper, labor, and ponder all that we have in blessings from the Lord! And in thanks for this gift, we should use it first and foremost to try to honor our God by doing our best to live according to His word and will.

    Live this way as praise to Him and as an example to others that they may see and perhaps ask about the hope which lies within us. And let us be ready with our answers!

    Good post, Shirley!

      Beautiful words of poetry, sung with the tenderness of love and joy to our God. Glory, Glory, glory, for He is truly worthy of all our praises and my friend you have expressed it in the highest of praises. Thank you so, so very much for sharing you love and joy of the Lord with all of us this day. You and the words the Lord has placed in your heart is a blessing to the Kingdom. Thank you, thank you. We appreciate you and your participation in the work we are doing here. Be Strong and Be of good courage in all that you do.

      • I am always encouraged by your replies, Pastor! The Lord does bring forth a multitude of His love and favor to shower down upon all people, but especially on those who belong to Him!

        We are justified in His sight through the blood of Christ…and that is a blessing worth an eternity of praise! I know we who try to serve Him faithfully understand that.

        May we do all we can to spread that message of “Good News” to everyone we see, both in words and deeds!

        I hope both you and Shirley will enjoy your days today…
