You can have faith and be close to God and go to church and other things that would seem to make you a godly person, but I feel like what does all of that matter if you don't have a heart that goes out to those who need you. To give of yourself to anyone in need- an animal, a stranger, someone sick, someone with heartache- is perhaps the most godly act you could do as you go about each day.
So, when I think about these beautiful words in the sweet photograph above- the reason God gives us a new day of life each day- it makes me feel like I have so much to learn in selflessness. Waking up to a new day tomorrow, I should not look at it as another day to have fun for or experience something joyful for myself. It takes your heart and your faith to a beautiful place to think of each day as a gift to serve others!
If we wake up tomorrow, it is because we have a purpose to help someone who needs us! Your purpose of today may even just be to lift someone up in prayer, or through a kind action, a loving word to a person we may come across, to make a bigger difference in the lives of others because of what we have to give- and even more than that, because we have been given another day to give it.
Have a blessed weekend!
Hope you stay warm and cozy inside♥
