Lord, instead of thinking about what I need to do today…

May I see you in the wonder of your Creation all around me.

Instead of making that list in my head (or on paper)…

May my ears hear the pure melody of your Love.

Instead of thinking about self and what I want, or should, or could do…

May I be willing to set aside the list.

To slow down.

To stop and listen to You; listen to my children.

Let me hold loosely to priorities of my “self” and be watchful and aware of the Holy Spirit’s leading and guidance.

Let my heart only long for one thing…

May I only look for one thing…

What are you calling me to do today?

To live today- a gift.

May I use my minutes to bring glory to Your Name.

Surrendering this time to Your will.

I don’t want to miss the blessings you have for me today- here and now.

Take a look at this...

Open my eyes that I may see.

I want to see You.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

“…one who moves too hurriedly misses the way.” Proverbs 19:2
