How often I get up and start my day... with my plan, my To-Do-List and my thoughts. Not fully considering that this life is not my own. I mean, of course it's my own, right?
I go to work.
I pay the bills.
I cook the dinner.
I clean the house.
I raise the kids.
I coordinate the schedules.
Or do I?
For what happens the moment I fall ill? The moment something gets out of whack and all the sudden I cry out to God... in need of His help to fix my way of life... the one I thought I had in control? Because that's when it truly hits me that this life is NOT my own.
For then I acknowledge that...
He gave me the job.
He provides the money.
He gives me strength to move.
He puts food on my table.
He gives me wisdom.
He protects my kids.
He guards my time.
All when I let Him...
only when I fully invite Him in.
But even when I don't, He is still the God of all. And this life is truly not my own. that is only a delusion of my prideful mind. For without the God of heaven I would not exist.
O Lord, let me not neglect You.
O Lord, let me not be so prideful.
O Just Instructor of my way...
guide me, guard me, teach me.
Help me with every step to KNOW You more.
For I would rather listen now
in these good times,
following Your ways.
Than have to answer for my error
on the day of judgement.
I will praise the Lord who counsels me
even at night my conscience instructs me.
I keep the Lord in mind always.
Because He is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
Psalm 16:6-7 HCSB
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
