Good Morning brothers and sisters. I sat pondering my life. Get up and start the day. I always set my alarm for about 15 minutes before I have to get up. I don't set it so I hit the snooze and go back to sleep, I set it so that it wakes me and I start praising my Lord and Savior. This is not a prayer to ask but just to praise and thank Him for all the blessings that He has done and that He will do. Nothing but praise. Then my alarm goes off again and I know it is time to start the day. I look at my day and going to work, cleaning house, cooking suppers, talking and praying with people. And I count all the things that life throws my way as nothing compared to what Jesus did for me. And I opened my Bible and I read Acts 20:24- But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish MY race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of grace of God. That scripture is the only thing that matters. That I finish the race that Jesus has put me on and no matter how hard that race gets sometimes, I will finish it with JOY! God has called each of us on a race, collectively and individually. But our individual races will coincide with the collective. We are one body serving one Lord and Savior. Finish the race that God has put you in and run that race with all the JOY that God gives. Have a blessed day and rise up children of God, rise up!
