It’s amazing how our life can change just 24 hours, sometimes for the good and other times for the not so good. I want to dwell on the good. In the past 24 hours it seems like we’re going from winter to spring… yesterday I played nine holes of golf, got a little sun and today we have thunderstorms mixed with spring showers. Today we adjust our clocks forward by one hour so we have more sun light in the evening to enjoy the outdoors. We went from winter storms to thunderstorms almost overnight.
We experience good things every day but we all know some days are extremely challenging and stressful squashing anything and everything good. The good news is 24 hours later our world and many of our circumstances change. What stressed you and I last week in many cases are gone, fixed or evaporated and no longer exist to aggravate us! Thank God!
It’s remarkable how prayer, a good night’s rest, food and talking with the right person can improve most difficult situations. The sequence of the above doesn’t matter however; the mix is a great recipe for success for the next 24 hours.
Praying is good any time and when you mix it in your day morning, noon and night the challenges aren’t so big. They’re still very real and very much something you must deal with it’s just much easier when you call on God because you’re sharing the burden with your heavenly father. A good night’s rest is critical if you expect any form of success in the next 24 hours. Some people require more than others and you surely know what your body needs, so get your rest! Food is another necessity and I’m not talking about a whopper, french fries and a chocolate shake, no I mean a good balanced meal full of good nutrients. The last ingredient for a successful next 24 hours is to talk to someone you trust and who will give you honest positive encouragement. The appropriate words spoken at the right moment by a good friend can be so uplifting!
The next 24 hours… tomorrow is a brand new day full of decisions. Start your tomorrow today with a good night’s rest and prayer. You do your part and anticipate God’s help and he will do his part. Oh what the next 24 hours can unfold great successes and joy because God is on your side!
