What Will You Own Today?

We don’t have to look far to find things that complicate our day.
A restless night of sleep disturbed with constant nightmares can set our whole morning off track; like little fingers jabbing at the center of our joy.
Those few tense days awaiting that call from the doctor with your test results; how the “future” dangles by the phone lines.
Deadlines, pressures and that pile of bills awaiting your attention and how the numbers in your checking account just don’t add up.
All the things to be figured out and tough decisions to be made. How they tug at your time and your energy.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9
We can attach ourselves to hope today….or to fear.
We can attach our peace to faith in God or give in to uncertainty created by the one who smiles on our defeat and laughs at our nightmares.
It’s a choice, really. What we “own”.
We’re free to either choose the Word of God and His promises to us or we can be a slave to the evil one.
Faith doesn’t come alive – I mean truly come alive until it’s lived out!
Wouldn’t you agree that what we own deep down in our spirit is what we will offer the world today?

1 Corinthians 10:31 
“So, whether you eat or drink, 
or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (ESV)
1 Corinthians 6:20 
“you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” (NIV)

  1. Oh Debbie, I just got this in my inbox. What timing. The dream I'd been working so hard on, hit a terrible snag and this morning it's been hard to even think clearly. But all that means is now is the time - today - for what is deep down in my spirit to come out! Thank you, thank you!
