Moments Of The Day

Updated on July 9, 2011
Source

Every day that we wake up, we have a lot to be thankful for. The gift of a new day before us to enjoy. Moments to take hold of and savor. We should be mindful to take time during these moments ~ morning, noon and night to:

  • In the morning, think about and reflect upon the gift we have been given of the new day that is before us. Make a promise to yourself that you will make life better not only for yourself, but for others as well.
  • At noontime, offer up a prayer to God asking for strength to those who are struggling at that very moment, even if it is you. Also, for God's love and protection.
  • At nighttime, thank God before you go to sleep for all of the blessings you have in life. Your blessings will always outweigh all of life's challenges.

Make two different lists. The first one is all of the challenge's life is presenting to you. The second one is all of the blessings you have. Compare the two lists and you will see all that you have to be thankful for.

Take a moment of the day. You will be glad you did!

      Hi Hyphenbird thank you for your great comments! I love the picture too. To be there in person would be breathtaking! My blessings from God are too many to list as well. He's been so good to me providing everything I need. I'm so glad you enjoy reading this and you are welcome! Happy to do it!

      Hi Jokylu! Thank you for commenting and your kind words, much appreciated! I remember singing that as a child. A great song indeed to remind us of the many blessings we have in life to be thankful for. Have a great day! :-)

      Thankyou Field of Flowers, and what a beautiful message. It reminds me of the childrens chorus we used to sing: Count your blessings name them one by one, count your blessings see what God has done, Count your blessings, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

      Bless you and keep writing
