What do you do with the moments that make up your day? Do you try to do the right thing or do you try to do things that may not be in the up and up? Each moment that makes up your day is an opportunity for you to live according to the will of God by treating others the way, you would like to be treated. It is an opportunity for you to try your best, to be patient with those you find annoying while being thankful for the blessings you have received in your life. In short, you can make yourself a winner by making God the winner through out the moments that make up your day.
However, we all know that this is easier said than done. This is because sometimes we get carried away by our emotions, our desires or our need to justify our actions or decisions.Sometimes this means we take the easy way out, we choose to look for a quick fix, like lying, corruption, stealing , lashing out in anger, drugs or sex, instead of trying to do the right thing.
We sometimes do the wrong thing because it is easier to do. Like David in the bible, we sometimes find it easier to look lustfully at others than to look away. This is especially true, if we rely on ourselves. This will lead us to the path of falling into temptation,doing harm to ourselves, to our families and to others.However, if we admit that we are weak and ask God to help us, we can look at others the way, we would like them to look at us. We can look at them with love.Doing this will help us become winners.
If you truly want to become a winner throughout the moments that make up your day, then you must be prepared to look at each moment of the day as an opportunity for you to transform into abundance, just like the merchant sees every moment or an encounter with a customer as an opportunity to make profit. We can do this praying to win through out the day.
Through prayers, we remove the burden from ourselves, because we acknowledge that we cannot do anything by ourselves, without the help of God. Through prayers, we infuse the moments that make up our days with the transformational power of grace. This will help us to make the right decisions and take the right action, in the different situations and circumstances, we find ourselves in, throughout the day.
How can we do this consistently?
By praying to win every day.
By being thankful to God.
By planning ahead.
By avoiding occasions of sin.
By watching what we read and what we watch.
By taking daily action to help us become more financially independent.
By becoming more forgiving.
By becoming more kind and more generous with our time and possessions.
Finally, we simply ask so that we shall receive. May God continue to bless you and transform you into a winner throughout the moments that make up your day.
