Not Yesterday. Not Tomorrow. Today.

"For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away" (James 4:14).

This is your friendly reminder that life is short, that you've had purpose from conception, and that today matters. Ask God what He would have you do with this day, and how you can be used for His Kingdom purposes today. It matters, friends.

Lord, give us wisdom to submit to your will every day. Give us eyes to see your hand at work, and the discernment to know how You want us to join You. Lord, that we would be putty in your hands. That we would recognize the how temporary our earthly lives are, and how many lost are living temporary lives with no hope. Gives us feet that go, hearts that love, and hands that help. Lord, help us to live lives that glorify You and that are according to Your will. In Jesus precious name, I pray. Amen.

Make it count.

In other (BIG, Wonderful) news, Bethany and Erin (the beauties featured on my side bar) have found a home with their forever family. Read about them here and here. To read the latest visit Rebecca at She Becomes!

Enjoy your DAY!

In His Name,

Jennifer
