I awoke this morning before the alarm went off, my to do list the first thing on my mind. I asked the Lord to order my steps throughout the day. As I started to make specific requests I realized; I hadn’t even said Good Morning! Instead, I had begun my needs inventory without giving thanks and praising Him. Immediately I corrected my error:
Thank You Lord for Your goodness! You are Amazing and Mighty and Holy! You are the Creator of the Universe, still, today You will walk with me. Thank You for watching over me through the night. For my husband and family and friends! You have given me so many people to love. I trust You with their lives… and so I continued…
As my feet hit the floor a short time later, my attitude was changed. No longer preoccupied with the heaviness of my cares, my heart was filled with joy.
Today will be an adventure with Jesus. I am so very thankful that He is with us wherever we go! Yes, He wants to help us with our needs, but He desires ever so much more for us. He wants us to take His hand and run with Him! To include Him in everything we do! He wants us to talk to Him as we go about our day! He is right here waiting to be invited! He is a gentleman. He will not push His way in.
