You Inspire Me
First of all I want to thank each of you who receive, welcome, and read my Charli-zines. I appreciate you all so much.
Beginning an Ezine was a step of faith. To be assured that it is God’s will, and then to believe that others will read it and be blessed by it is a little like walking on water.
I have had many wonderful responses from women who have shared their feelings and testimonies with me. So it has given me joy and encouragement to know that I am moving in the right direction.
Inspiration for You
I cannot believe that the effects of fall are already beginning to come into view. Summer seemed to breeze in and out so quickly. It reminds me of Ps. 90:12:
“So, teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” NKJ
This scripture has been such a constant reminder to me of the brevity of our lives here on earth. So many times we are looking back or looking forward, never realizing the joys of today and this present moment. The Lord states in Ps. 68:19:
“Blessed be the Lord,
If we constantly look back it can cause us to regret or become full of sorrow due to our mistakes. If we constantly look forward, fear and worry can overwhelm us concerning what might happen in the future.
This is the reason that God said that He is the “I AM.” [Gen. 26:24] He said that “Now is the accepted time,” that “today is the day of salvation.” [II Cor. 6:2] NKJ
If we can learn to live our lives one day at a time, then we will be able to enjoy all the benefits the Lord has for us each and every day. I don’t want to miss even one. Let’s embrace today and let God take care of tomorrow. Besides, we get more benefits tomorrow! Wow! What a deal our Heavenly Father has given us!
