Make a Friend Tomorrow.

Make a Friend Tomorrow

Before you go to sleep tonight, you will most likely review your plans and appointments for tomorrow. Perhaps you will mentally prepare for them or pray about them. You will think about what you will wear based upon your tasks and appointments, what time you will need to get up, perhaps even, what you will have for breakfast.

May I suggest an assignment for tomorrow?

Make a friend.

Go out of your way to meet someone you do not know and establish a relationship. Do it without ulterior motives or a sense of "prospecting." Do it with an open mind and heart. Do it for no other reason than the knowledge that this could be a significant and mutually beneficial relationship.

Make it a goal and a commitment. Otherwise, it most likely will not happen.

Get excited about it.

You may be about to meet the person who will come into your inner circle of social or business relationships. You may meet the person who needs exactly the kind of friendship you offer or whose insights will take you to the next level of achievement.

You will meet a person of infinite value, wonder, and potential.

You are about the meet someone made in the image of the Creator, someone that God has arranged for you to meet.

All it takes is your willingness and resolve.

Decide to make a friend tomorrow.

Big Day

God has a very big day in store for you tomorrow.

You will conquer fear, despair, and sorrow.

You will rise to heights you've never known.

You will sigh and laugh, and sing and grown.

You will live and celebrate your inspired humanity.

You will rise above the dull, monotony of senseless insanity

To soar, to roar with the voice of the lion, to score.

The door is before you, the voice of God whispers, "There is more!"

Tomorrow is yours to face and embrace with wonder.

It is for your voice to shout the victory, to thunder,

"I am here and I have come to conquer this day!

There is no fear that can sway me or turn me from this way!

I am a soldier or love, a warrior of peace, a child of God.

My strength is from above. My joy shall not cease. I stand on the sod

Of a new day ... tomorrow.
