"And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him,
turned around in the crowd and said, ‘Who touched my clothes?'"
Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because I am in direct contact with my Source and Creator; God has touched me, and I can touch God! He knows my name, hears me when I pray, and cares about what is happening in my life today. My strength to live this day successfully comes from His unique touch – His hand is on my life, and He is with me in every step I take!
Today I will not live an isolated life. Others have touched me, so I will reach out in unselfishness to someone who needs my touch today. I will not let the activities of the day cause me to become insensitive to those in my life who may be lonely or hurting. I will take some time out of my schedule, and invest it in a real, personal connection with that one who is in need.
Today I will touch someone in a positive way, because I know that using negatives, on myself or others, will not get me the results that I'm looking for. Negative interaction and response will only bring a multitude of new problems into my life (like depression, rebellion, division), so I will overcome evil with good today, and will walk in the God-kind of love that never fails.
Today I will take comfort in the knowledge that Jesus, my High Priest is touched with the feelings of my humanity and weaknesses. His empathy for me enables me to be emancipated from unrealistic expectations for myself and for others. Today I will live and let live.
Today I will not let myself become cynical and unfeeling, but I will remain reachable – in touch with my emotions . . . caring . . . in touch with the real world.
Today I will touch the throne of God by praying effective, genuine prayers in line with His Word and His will. My prayers will avail much because I am righteous!
Today I will give something back. I will freely give because I have freely received, recognizing the significance of reciprocating — the sowing and reaping principle — leaving something for the next generation — leaving the world in a better condition than the one in which I discovered it. I will do my part. I will do what I can. I will touch someone with my life today, and today I will live in the now!
Father, help me to stay in touch with You today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
