Good Morning my friends
Wouldn’t you love to wake up in the morning and know exactly what your day was going to bring? It would be great to know if you were going to have a good day, an ok day, a great day, a terrible day, an even worse day or a don’t bother getting out of bed day. I use to try to plan my day. At this time I will do this and then I will do that and so on.. Of course it very never worked out the way I planned. It would’ve been nice to know when I was planning it that unexpected things were going to happen.. I never planned for obstacles/roadblocks. In my mind every day was going to be perfect and go as I planned. LOL…. That’s funny.. I can honestly tell you that today I don’t concern myself with knowing what the day is going to bring. Most days, I wake up praying for God to guide me & protect me and to place the desire in my heart to honor Him and to give Him glory. This allows me to be equipped to face whatever the day brings. I no longer have roller coaster emotional days.. Days of frustration… Now I tend to treat obstacles as hurdles and just glide over them like an Olympic Hurdler on my way to the finish-line of Glory. My friends when you walk with Jesus and you allow God to guide you and protect you, you learn to treat your downs like water off a ducks back..
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” (Exodus 33:14)
God wants to prepare you for the day that you have before you. He knows exactly what this day will contain, whereas you have only vague ideas about it. We all would like to have a road map, showing all the twists and turns of our journey. We all feel that we would feel more prepared if we could somehow visualize what is on the road ahead. However, there is a better way to prepare for whatever we will encounter today. By spending quality time with God, He will not show you what is on the road ahead, but He will thoroughly equip you for the journey. His living Presence is your Companion each step of the way. Stay in continual communication with Him, whispering His Name whenever you need to redirect your thoughts. Thus, you can walk through this day with your focus on Him. God’s abiding Presence is the best road map available.
Jesus said, “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:4-7)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU!!! Walk through you day focused on God…
I pray that YOU have an AMAZING day. Blessings & much love…. D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
