Today, we will do something together!!! Let’s stop for a moment, and take a deep breath in; now, breathe out. Did you feel that? I did; that breath signifies that we are alive. You may be asking what is the significance of the exercise, so I will tell you. It may be that we seldom give deep thought to the air we breathe, especially because it is so natural for us to inhale and exhale; we do not even think about it After all it is how we stay alive.
I sincerely hope that we will develop a new appreciation for the breaths we take at every moment. Let us be realistic for a minute; there were several persons who did not wake up this morning; for whatever the reason, at some time last night they took their last breath.
Some years ago I learned the value of “Every Moment“. As far as I knew, I was getting older every year, but to be honest, my life wasn’t making much progress. As I got to know the Lord, and learned to better understand the reason that God gave me life, I wanted to learn to use my time better. So, like my dear sister, Stormie Omartian, the Author of : The Power of the Praying Woman taught me so well, I prayed.
Overtime, the Holy Spirit helped me to learn how to make Every Moment Matters. It began with writing down the things I desired to do each day and committing them to God. I would ask Him to direct me throughout the day to get my tasks done. Believe it or not, some days some of my most important tasks never got done.
And why? There were several reasons; sometimes, I procrastinated, at other times they were not yet necessary, at other times they were not the best choice for me and other reasons too. I felt as if my life was a construction project; some parts were being demolished, and some parts were being built up.
All these lessons I was learning were to help me to master the art of Living on Schedule. I soon understood that the pursuit of the QUEEN LIFE involves using time wisely, and making Every Moment Matters. As I adhered to God’s direction I found that my life was taking shape in a way that made sense; the plans He had for me were being revealed and manifested.
I know now that God’s invitation to us to be Daddy’s Little Girls wise so that His plans for us can be fulfilled on schedule. When we give careful thought to how we spend every moment we learn to be wise and do that which builds up our lives, and gets us closer to the goal- the mark of the higher call in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14)
My QUEEN SISTER, the walk of faith is not easy, but it is worth it because within having the courage to trust God with your whole life is a budding plan of good – a plan to give you hope and a bright future. So truly; Every Moment Matters because every action and thought is achieving one of two goals; either building your life, or tearing it down.
A wise woman builds, so she makes Every Moment Matters and works for her good always. As you strive to do the will of God and honour Him with your life you will do well to fulfill the purpose for which you were born. It is written:
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind”.Ecclesiastes 12:13
Living your every moment seeking to do God’s will gives pleasure to your KING. I know all too well that is your definite intention.
- What does my “every moment” look like?
- Does my actions build or tear down my life
- What positive actions can I celebrate in making moments matter to improve my life?
MY PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I am truly blessed to be on a journey that will take me to a wonderful place. As I take care to make Every Moment Matters I am confident that my effort will reap great reward. Please help me to understand how to best use my time for Your glory and my benefit. Reveal the schedule you have for my life, so that I can do all that will build my life so that it reflects Your glory.
Living the QUEEN LIFE is my goal, I ask You to continue to teach me each day how to achieve this goal.
In Jesus’s Name I pray – Amen
