"Many are the torments of the

In life there are three perspectives of how
we live our lives-- us, the world, and I. What makes each of these
perspectives have a different impact is how we keep God in our lives.
Us. God made each and everyone of us,
but do we still have unity? Do we still trust one another? Do we love each
other anymore? God has given us the tools to use, it is up to
us to use them and make sure we do it with pride knowing that we
are the disciples of God. Jesus sacrificed himself to make our lives
better. We are the ones who persecuted him, yet He still rose to inspire
each and every one of us. Everything that the Lord does is through His
grace. We often lose sight of the One who gave us these
blessings. We overlook everything and move on to the next problem or
desire. The Psalmist says, “ I will confess my transgressions to the
Lord and you forgave me the guilt of my sin”(Psalm 32:5). God removes any
guilt, any paranoia, and any worry away from us. Us is togetherness
and a concrete and compact way of living in our communities. Church is
where this all happens, or should happen, the one place where all the
worries fade away and we are surrounded by people who are empowered with
love for the Almighty.
Next is the world. God gave us
the opportunity of making a difference in this world. We are the ones that
have been granted the responsibility to change the world.
Lastly the I. Who am I? This
is the question we all ask ourselves. We sometimes discover this by how we
deal with temptations. Job was tested by the Devil. He had to endure many
sufferings yet he didn't blame God once. Job only prayed harder, loved
God as much as he could, and put his trust in God. In our own lives we have
many temptations and many times we may not see God's work in our lives.
Who do we trust during those times? What decisions do we make?
Now each one
of these things have an impact. Every single person has an impact. There is
the us-- if we come together, the world -- if we create change, and the “I”
-- if we do the right thing.
O’ Lord, let us make the right
decisions in our lives, ones that embodies Your will, your
commandments. Help us to be enlightened by Your Word and power. Let
the whole world see Your glory. In Jesus name we pray Amen.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
the right decisions with God and all our worries of tomorrow will fade away.
