â€¨â€¨I fail not so much when tragedy happens as I did be fore the happening, by all the little things I might have done, but did not do. I must prepare for the future by doing the right thing at the right time now. If a thing should be done, I should deal with that thing today and get it righted with God before I allow myself to undertake any new duty. I should look upon myself as performing God’s errands and then coming back to Him to tell Him in quiet communion that the message has been delivered or the task done.â€¨
Prayer for the Day
â€¨â€¨I pray that I may seek no credit for the results of what I do. I pray that I may leave the outcome of my actions to God.
Thank you, Dr DJ.Â One of the beauties/curses of “retirement” and the Internet is that we have so many choices in how to structure each day and even each hour. I am not good at constructing or following “to-do” lists, yet feel badly when I fall behind in responding to e-mail, neglecting Bible study or failing to take time for prayer.Â I am grateful for these daily snippets that help me get back on track.
