The ONE THING for today

You don’t have to top that today

  • “If what you did yesterday still looks big to you, you haven’t done much today.” _Elbert Hubbard

You can be right but not accurate. Mr. Hubbard’s above quotation is a good example.

Every day can’t be Christmas.

Every day will not be and does not have to be a last-game-of-the-World-series-everything-is-on-the-line kind of day.

We were created to be God’s children, not his champions—He’s the Champion.

Ordinary is not bad. Matter of fact, it is the building blocks of great things; string together enough wisely lived ordinary days and you will indeed achieve many great things.  However…

The relentless pressure of always topping yesterday is a recipe for burnout and failure. Somewhere, there has to be a season of rest; a season where we can say, “I’ve done enough for a while.”

The Bible calls it Sabbath. Maybe another expression for it is: “The Holidays.”

Whatever…enjoy these few days at the end of the year.

I pray they are ordinary, restful, and restorative for you.

Happy dreaming while you’re sipping that cup of coffee…

The ONE THING today: Dream about a better future while you’re enjoying today.


“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

(I Corinthians 2:9, NKJV)
