Lord,

I know every single day of life is a gift. But I also know I don’t always act like it. In fact, too often I take Your gift of life for granted by wasting time, wasting opportunities and wasting Your grace.

I don’t want to do that again today.  So I’m going to make sure I give thanks to You, spend time with You, act humbly, love with abandon, serve extravagantly and expect the miraculous every moment.

I know it’s a big order, Lord. But I also know I don’t have to do it alone. Thank You for embracing me, molding and shaping me, and filling me with Your Holy Spirit.

I do all of this in the strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
