Just For Today

If you're like me, you're already planning the upcoming week. There is much to do, and it seems like less time to do it in. Just for tomorrow, just for Monday, keep this list handy and see how much you can complete. Yes, it means adding some more to our already-busy schedule. But print this out or keep it handy, just for today.

Just for today:

___ As soon as you wake up, say a prayer of thanksgiving to God. He's kept you alive for one more night! Thank Him for His grace and mercy.

___ Get up a little earlier than normal.

___ Spend time early in Bible study and prayer. Take the time to listen and understand God's plans for your day before you speed off.

___ Write one quick note of encouragement to someone you know needs to hear it.

___ Pray for your husband as he heads off for work.

___ Make healthy food a priority of the day. Your body and your mind will thank you.

___ Whether you have a job outside the home, you work from home or you keep your home all day, dedicate one whole day of your service to the Lord.

___ At lunchtime, pray for your husband again.

___ Spend special time with your children after school. Let them know that they're on your prayer list, too.

___ Plan dinner and evening activities.

___Pray for your husband when he's on his way home from work.

___ Make the evening a special time for family. Focus on each other and the events of the day, not the television or the chores.

___ Have some family altar time before everyone heads their separate ways for the night.

___ Get to bed a little early. It will make getting up in the morning that much easier.

___ Close out the day in prayer, thanking the Lord for all His many blessings.

If this works for Monday, try it again on Tuesday. Modify what you need to, add in some of your own wants and needs and let God do the rest.

  1. What a great reminder! I tend to schedule all of the "stuff" in my life, and forget to schedule God time. You have a very nice blog!

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by! I've found in my own life that I use the word "I" too much, when I should be using the word "Him." It's not about me and it's never going to be about me. When I remember that it's His time to use it really makes a difference.
