One Day at a Time

I had a very old song that I haven’t heard in I don’t know how long, pop into my head this morning.  Actually it was just two lines from the chorus that I heard as I climbed out of bed this morning.  “Just give me the strength, To do everyday what I have to do.”   And shouldn’t that be our prayer everyday?  Just the strength for today Lord.  No amount of strength can change yesterday and who knows if we will even have tomorrow, today is what I need to concentrate on. 

I’m only human, I’m just a woman.
Help me believe in what I could be
And all that I am.
Show me the stairway, I have to climb.
Lord for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time.

Chorus:
One day at a time sweet Jesus
That’s all I’m asking from you.
Just give me the strength
To do everyday what I have to do.
Yesterday’s gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today, show me the way
One day at a time.

Do you remember, when you walked among men?
Well Jesus you know if you’re looking below
It’s worse now, than then.
Cheating and stealing, violence and crime
So for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time.

“Help me believe in what I could be And all that I am. Show me the stairway, I have to climb.”  As I read through the words this jumped out at me.  There is so much talk about self-esteem these days, however, I don’t want my self-esteem, I want to know how God views me.  What I think of my self is probably off kilter, only God’s view is completely honest.  If we really get a revelation of exactly what HE thinks of us, I think we’d be blown away.  Both in where He sees we need improvement and in where we fit in the kingdom.  We are joint heirs with Christ!

Lord, help me believe I am capable of doing all that You have called me to do with Your help, and show me an honest picture of all that I am in You.
