We often try to group days, weeks and even years in a bunch. By doing that “bunching” together we feel as if we have accomplished so much but in all actuality we have only completed the task at hand. We run around doing errands, cleaning our homes, getting our children off to school, driving down the highway like speeds of lightning, rushing to and from work, trying to hurry up and make dinner, walk the dog, wash, dry and fold laundry, rush to bathe and dive into bed to hurry up and go to sleep. Oftentimes we try to be super hero’s to complete all the above only to rise in the morning and do it all over again.
In 2 Peter 3:8, it is written: (8) But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
I don’t think anyone could have spoken it more eloquently. When we are with the Lord, it is He that gives us strength to complete one task at a time, one day at a time, one year at a time. So you see, all the hustle and bustle we create during the day should be taken in stride not as if a whirlwind came. It is God’s day all day and He loved us so much that He gives us this one day as our daily bread. Let’s not waste it.
When I was going to chemotherapy, it was one day at a time. That was something that could not be bunched together. It is a constant reminder that if we ask God to give us this one day, then allow it to be His one day. Today is a day a decision must be made that as we continue to walk with God, it is only one day.
