Natural disasters. Civil unrest. In challenging times fear can be widespread. To help shift fear to faith, Silent Unity is inviting the world community to unite in prayer for 30 days by affirming the following prayer: The healing, harmonizing spirit of God is present in my life and all life. Peace, order, harmony, and well-being are restored.
One Day at a Time
By Joseph Wolpert
It seems that not a week goes by without us hearing the phrase "one day at a time." We see bumper stickers with this slogan. There is even a best-selling and award-winning gospel song that has a title using these words.
Because "one day at a time" expresses an invaluable and powerful spiritual principle—a principle that, when applied, brings a new freedom to people who have experienced much emotional pain.
There are two thieves that frequently rob us of today's joy, happiness, and peace—past hurts and future fears.
That is why living "one day at a time" is so important. When this is done, problems connected with the past and the future are put to rest. We enjoy a new freedom.
Jesus put words to this principle when He said: "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof ... " (Mt. 6:34 KJV).
Once we begin to live according to this God-given principle, our entire lives take on new meaning. We realize there is indeed a purpose to our lives and all which has brought us to this present moment in time is to be viewed not with regret, but with appreciation and gratitude.
When you wake up each morning, simply ask God to be with you throughout the day—strengthening, encouraging, and guiding you. Then, if old memories or future fears pop up, simply remind yourself that you are a new person choosing to live life in a new and divinely-ordained way. The past and the future no longer have a negative hold on you, because God is traveling the road with you. When you go to bed at night, simply say, "Thank you, God, for being with me another 24 hours."
