Are you having a bad day? Are you feeling discouraged and "down in the dumps"? If so, I want you to stop... take a brief moment to look around you, because this "span of time" will never come again and if you are dismayed... you are wasting the precious time that is rapidly slipping away!
Isaiah is clearly telling us that although there will be times when we are wearisome and dismayed, we don't have to linger there! These are the times to "look around" and accept the blessings of life and feel the warm embrace of our Lord.
Celebrate God! Because, He has not only given us these hours, He is in these times and places. Oh, how sweet is the light of day and how wonderful it feels to have the warm sunshine pamper us with a delicate caress.
When we train our minds to trust, to rest in God, we can take delight in each light-filled hour. And, when the dark days do come our way... they will dissipate and vanish like smoke in the air as we give them to God!
Lord, teach us how to cherish every moment you give us here on earth. Help us to recognize your blessings and the gift of the present time we have!
Let us learn that in this minute... in this hour... and at this very moment... We can stand firm, free from anxiety simply because we are in the presence of our Savior, Lord and King!!
What will you do with, "this moment of time...??"
