I only get one chance at today. I know what's required of me to make this a good day: begin with prayer, turn my fears and burdens over to the Lord, go out of my way to help another person, be kind, stay sober, exercise, work to the very best of my ability, and hit my knees whenever I'm feeling distant.
Today is all I have.
"Father, I come to you today broken and confused. Please enter this room and surround me with your presence. I need peace, wisdom, and patience today. Thank you for everything you're doing in my life. I'm learning to trust you completely, so I give you everything today. Thank you for loving me, and thank you for the strength to get through today with a smile. Amen."
