Day One Devotion - Don't Miss It

I read a story from a woman who shared with me about the strained relationship with her and her dad. He’d made one poor choice after the other and as a result they rarely ever spoke. But at the age of 80 he found himself in the final days of his life.

She wrote to me and said she went to be with him in the hospital because that’s what daughters do. While she was standing by his bedside at one point, he looked up to her and he said, “I missed it, didn’t I? I absolutely missed it?”

That day a grown woman had the chance to hold her father’s hand and pray with him as he asked Jesus into his heart for the first time. After they prayed, she looked at her dad and said, “You’re not missing it now – you’ve got it right now, and now is all we have.”

In John 10:10, Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.”

Don’t wait.

Start today discovering what life to the full is like.

Give your full devotion to Jesus and He will show you an amazing life.

It’s time to start over, starting now. Today is Day One.
