This morning Joel Osteen asked a question.  What if you woke up every morning with a deposit of $86,400 in you bank account, how would you spend it?  

Yes your mind is reeling with stuff.  Mine too.   You can use the money anyway you'd like without having to give an account to anyone. However if you don't spend it all today the cash that is left disappears from your account forever.  

But tomorrow you get the same gift of $86,400 in your account.  And the day after that, and the day after that. And again, I pose the question. How will you spend it?  Will you be careful and deliberate?  Would you take it for granted because you assume more will be wired to your account tomorrow? 

Every day God gives us 86,400 seconds.  How will you spend it?

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: (Genesis 1:14)



  1. Oh, that was good. I was trying to figure out: "Now why is she asking about such a specific dollar figure".

    How do you like this new signature slogan I made up for you: "Miss Ottley, if you're nasty". Doesn't that have a nice ring to it?

  2. OOOOOOOOOH, that was a good one!

    Part of my morning prayer is this: "Oh Lord, let me take all that I am and all I have the potential to be and use it for a purpose greater than myself. Help me to make someone else feel worthwhile...."

    And THAT is how I spend my time and my money.

    But I can always strive to do more, be more and give more.

  3. Thanks for the LOVE.... You have a very delightful page.... it appears I can learn something from you.... Feel free to share any ideas you may have.... via email GOD bless you in JESUS CHRIST mighty name AMEN!

  4. Dear "SOLiving" - hey, like that? SO LIVING??? Anyway, you are such a WONDERFUL WRITER, and it's clear that the stroke does not define you!! You are a Blessing and an Inspiration: keep it up!
