(The following inspiration is contributed by Celeste Coleman.)
I shall be grateful for the breath of life this day. I shall try to be productive in every possible way. I shall ask for guidance lest my feet or sights should stray. I shall try and find the good in whatever comes my way.
I shall be kind to those that I meet for the kindness that I give, shall one day, come – back to me. I shall follow hard after persistence, tenacity and positiveness. And, I shall try and find comfort and fulfillment in knowing I’ve done my best.
These principles I shall practice until my journey’s end. by Celeste Coleman
Thank you GOD for today, YOU will help me to find YOUR WAY.
I’m already thinking about tomorrow, Hoping it won’t bring pain nor sorrow.
I haven’t yet started today’s run, Getting tomorrow’s anxiety before the setting of the sun.
Now I must get back into focus No need to meddle and discuss What tomorrow might bring O Heavenly Father, for your GRACE to cling Enough temptations and trials this day will bring And pray to YOU and for me to do the right thing!
So I’ll praise GOD and simply say Thank you GOD for today,
YOU will help me to find YOUR WAY.

(My poem was inspired by reading Matthew 6:34 & James 4:14.)
All of GOD’S SERVANTS want a glowing report from HIM about what they have done on earth for the KINGDOM OF GOD. Their thoughts and actions will reflect that they have excelled in one area, to say the least. Maybe they are helping relatives and friends and neighbors. Their care and concern for humanitarian causes, or for animals might not be neglected as well.
Can the people of GOD be caught off guard with the cares of this world? My answer is perhaps.
Moreover, Matthew 24:42-46 implies the intent of one’s alertness to pass the GOOD LORD’S FINAL EXAMINATION.
