a perfect day for a poem.
“I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do” John 17:4 NIV
In the beginning of the daily devotional book written while I was incarcerated from which the majority of the posts found here are taken is a poem titled, “Today Is”.
I am posting it here today because I think it sums up how precious each new day is, and what those days should be used for.
Today is a gift from God,
A day unlike all the rest.
A brand new opportunity
To bring out our very best.
Today is a wondrous thing,
A day full of life on God’s earth.
A day to invest all our love
To make today something of worth.
Today is a chance to inspire,
To worship, to lead, to teach.
To help others searching for truth,
And to show them how high they can reach.
Have a blessed day, and make it something of worth.
