Today, I had a bit of a self revelation. I have been blessed so much by God, and I have not been doing my end of the bargain. I have been taking and taking and not giving anything to Christ. Well that ends. I have been examine where in my life, I can do better in being the Lord’s face on earth. I can always tithe more. Well, I mean I should begin to tithe. I can also be more diligent in reading the word. I feel good about this. I really need this because in this world today, I just worry. I worry of course about COVID but I also worry about others. I worry about my family, friends, and just life in general. It’s to the point that I just start making up problems. Need to focus my thoughts and energy on what matters.
I choose to remember the past and smile. It was great while it lasted and as a believer of Christ, I know we shall see each other again.
Life has been good considering all the Pandemic stuff that surrounds us and I thank you for that Lord. I find myself thinking more and more of problems and uncertainty as oppose to keeping my eyes on the Grace of God. I’m not sure why this is the case. I know I am blessed and I know that I am loved. My mind just always goes to thinking to everything I dont have and everything that is wrong. Even when there is no problem, my mind always plays this “what if” game.
Lord, I ask for Grace. I ask that you help me keep my eyes focused on you. May I not focus on what I dont have, and focus on what I do have. I have you and that is everything I need. I pray for the grace of realizing that I am blessed and chosen. I pray that I fill my mind with you. My mind always defaults to the worst case scenario and when that happens situations play in my mind that are just out there. I remind myself that you sit on the throne. Forgive me for my sins. I love you, Lord, In Jesus Name, Amen.
If you wake up in the morning, it is a gift. What you do with a gift is a different conversation. We all face trials and tribulations along with victories and happiness. Taking the good days with the bad days is what life on this side is all about.
