Most days, I wake up, start my coffee, brush my teeth, spend a few moments in prayer and after talking to God, get ready to write something for the here. Some days I have very distinct thoughts on what to write and other days almost too many ideas and none stand out as important enough to about at the time. Today is one such morning, a lot of thoughts about issues I could write about, but none that stand out as THE issue He wants me to work on for the day. As I consider the various thoughts, struggling to find the one that seems more pressing, I just don’t have that clarity of thought that I need to write about at the moment. Since I can’t come up with one thought otherwise, I realize that some days, I just need to realize that every day with Christ is a Glorious Day! And, just worship and praise Him. Thank Him for the blessings He gives me. Glorify His name for being the forgiving and gracious Savior He is for me and just enjoy His presence.
Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, [and] for thy truth’s sake. Psalms 115:1
Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name. 2 Samuel 22:50
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Hebrews 13:8
Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. James 5:13
Lord, I praise Your Holy Name and thank You for all that You are, my Savior, my Redeemer, my life giver and for the forgiveness of my sins. I thank You for the grace and mercy that You give. I praise You for being the same, never waivering, never abandoning me, never failing to give me more than I deserve. I pray in the name of Jesus that You continue to help me grow in Christ, that You draw me nearer to You and teach me how to better serve You. I ask that You work in the hearts and minds of loved ones, teach them how to serve You, bring those living in sin to You and help them see the truth of their ways, deliver them from their sins so they may know You as they should. Thank You for all You are for we who, despite being so unworthy, are given all the blessings You promise us.
I hope all are enjoying His blessings and are sure to bless someone else today.
