Just for Today

Just for today, I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful…  Anonymous

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.  Philippians 4:8 

In the circles I travel there is a reading that we often refer to entitled, Just For Today.

Have you heard of it? 
The value of  a Just for Today kinda mindset is that it asks me to practice a form of gratitude that shuns worry and fosters renewed appreciation for all the good things in life that God wants me to enjoy.

The genius of Just for Today is that it asks me to practice this discipline for one day only.

24 lil hours, that’s all!
Eighteen lil hours, if you’re like me and are not planning to be consciously reckoning with your world the whole day/night long.
Here is a lil exercise in Just for Today thinking, for those who want to stretch their faith muscle today.

Just for today: concentrate on what is beautiful.  Instead of worrying, embrace a godly confidence in prayer, and your Lord’s ability to meet your needs.  In addition to his mindset and commitment, provide physical evidence of today’s decision by smiling more, hugging a lil longer, and reaching out to others with stories of faith, strength, and victory!

Just for today: focus on what is right in the world, instead of listening to hours of bad news or discouraging reports.  Believe God is for you!

If you are so inclined, raise holy hands in thanks and praise of Him, caring little about what you lack, if you can even remember that sorta stuff after the blessing you’re gonna receive from putting God first.

Just for today, bask in the joy and assurance you have as God’s son or daughter!  Remember, there are no grandchildren in eternity. Only sons and daughters of the high King of Heaven. That means you have a set at the big kids table at the feast to come.  Praise God for that!

Remember that catchy chorus…

He is with us, He is with us, always, always!

He is with us, He is with us, always, always!
The song goes on to say:Our faith is sealed
Our hope is real
Come what may
We’re not afraidWe can trust our God, always, always
We can trust our God, always, always!!!

Today and every day, let’s celebrate our Lord, and let’s give Him praise!!!!

Just for today…[you fill in the blank, while you listen to the song].
