One Day at a Time...

One day at a time. 
Day after day, time marches on.
Days turning into weeks, into months, and into a lifetime.

While we can (and should) think about the future, plan for it, and constantly readjust for it, we can only live one day at a time.

Mother Teresa said, "Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin."

I can't stop thinking about time. One of the summer messages on Ecclesiastes was on beautiful, burdensome TIME (Ecclesiastes 3:1-17).

The Psalm 90 text tells us to number our days correctly and gain a heart of wisdom.

But never forget, you live one day a time.

When today is done, it goes in the history books. As you fall asleep, this day is over and you don't get a do-over. You do get tomorrow as a fresh chance, a new beginning, and a fresh start.

But here is my question: If you did not carpe diem (seize the day) today, why do you assume you will do it tomorrow? The more you waste time, the easier it is to see the days fly by.

So, the following thought is a good way to live.
Our summer series on wisdom is about helping you live each single day, every single day, and at the end, to know you have lived a lifetime deeply and well.

That is why Jesus came. To give you live--real and eternal, more and better life than you can imagine.

One day at a time to the end of days.

Today is a great day to start living deeply and well.
