The Thought, Meditation and Prayer for Today



October

Thought for Today
I have learned to live one day at a time. I have finally realized the great fact that all I have is now. This sweeps away all vain regret and it makes my thoughts of the future free of fear. Now is mine. I can do what I want with it. I own it, for better or worse. What I do now, in this present moment, is what makes up my life. My whole life is only a succession of nows. I will take this moment, which has been given to me by the grace of God, and I will do something with it. What I do with each now, will make me or break me. Am I living in the now?

Today's Meditation
We should work at overcoming ourselves, our selfish desires and our self-centeredness. This can never be fully accomplished. We can never become entirely unselfish. But we can come to realize that we are not at the center of the universe and that everything does not revolve around us at the center. I am only one cell in a vast network of human cells. I can at least make the effort to conquer the self-life and seek daily to obtain more and more of this self-life and seek daily to obtain more and more of this self-conquest. “He that overcomes himself is greater than he who conquers a city.”

Prayer for Today
I pray that I may strive to overcome my selfishness. I pray that I may achieve the right perspective of my position in the world.



Have a better day than yesterday and may you find God in your own special way.

Thank You for taking the Time Have a better day!

March 06, 2000 someone left from their home never to return. They died on Buford Highway at about 6:00 AM. My sorrow for the family.

Remember when you hear the traffic reports and they speak of a fatality they could be somebody you know. Also that they are usually leaving others behind. Their spouse and even children said goodbye for the last time that morning. It breaks my heart. Take a moment and pray for them and the family that will be left behind. Thanks! I Love You!
