Wouldn’t our lives be better if we woke up every morning and said “This is the first day of the rest of my life. Thank you, Lord, for this day. I will make the most of it and not look back. Thank you for forgiving me and loving me.” If we have the Holy Spirit living in us, our thoughts are always filled with thanks for the small blessings each day. All of us have left a trail of brokenness behind, but we don’t need to dwell there. Every day is an opportunity to change, but we must have a realistic outlook. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but when we stop and ask God for direction instead of relying on ourselves, we begin the journey to healing and a better life. Lifting my cup of tea with a good morning smile and thanks for another day with unending opportunities. You’ll find them if you ask God to direct your footsteps and listen for His answer.
