I came across the following essay recently. I do not know the author. As we begin the New Year
2015, I challenge you to take this article, put it in the front of your Bible, and begin each day by reading
these wise and timely words:
Today is here. I will start with a smile and resolve to be agreeable. I will not criticize. I refuse to waste my valuable time.
Today has one thing in which I know I am equal with others-Time. All of us draw the same salary in seconds, minutes, hours.
Today I will not waste my time because the minutes I wasted yesterday are as lost as vanished thought.
Today I refuse to spend time worrying about what might happen-it usually doesn’t. I’m going to spend time making things happen.
Today I am determined to study to improve myself, for tomorrow I may be wanted, and I must not be found lacking.
Today I am determined to do things I should do. I firmly determine to stop doing the things I should not do.
Today I begin by doing and not wasting my time. In one week I will be miles beyond the person I am today.
Today I will not imagine what I would do if things were different. They are not different.
I will make success with what material I have.
Today I will stop saying, “If I had time-.” I know I never will “find time” for anything. If I want time,
I must make it.
Today I will act toward other people as though this might be my last day on earth.
I will not wait for tomorrow.
God Bless you and I pray that 2015 will be a happy and healthy year for you and yours!
Your friend and pastor,
