Turning Your "One Days" into Todays

What of your, "one day," is for years from now?
What of it is for "tomorrow?"
And what of it was made to turn into "today?"

Most people will find themselves saying or thinking, "One day I'm going to..."  or "One day it's gonna be like this..."  And while it is totally true that there are "one days," as in things that haven't happened yet, that maybe can't even happen until a pattern of events transpire...I don't want to get caught up in ONLY looking ahead for the completion of those "one day" sentences.

I've really felt the Lord telling me today that there's some of those things that aren't for far off in the future, or even for tomorrow, but that they are readily available to me today.  That this He has for me now.  And that I don't want to have something, even the simplest of things, pass me because I was so busy waiting on the "one day" it would arrive.

What am I talking about?  Well, to be honest, the simple things were the focus of today.  "One day I'm gonna have daily schedule."  "One day I'm gonna be more mature in area of my personality."  "One day I'm gonna have the habit of cleaning the kitchen after every meal."  "One day we're gonna have great communication."  But then there are the bigger things too, such as:  "One day we're both gonna attend and finish college."  "One day we're gonna be in paid full-time youth and worship ministry in a church."  "One day ministry is gonna just blow up (in a good way) and we'll begin to see the visions God has given us for youth conferences, missions, and camps begin to come to fruition."  "One day we will be truly living in the definition of a new testament follower of Christ, witnessing and performing miracles in His name."  "One day..."

Don't let your heart's desires go undone because you never took a first step.  "All things big were once things small," someone dear to me once said.  Everything has to start somewhere, why not today?  =)

Philippians 4:13 (Amplified Bible)  "I have strength for ALL things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything & equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me: I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]!"
