Another month has fallen off the calendar, a new month is marching relentlessly on! This truth has been gnawing at the edges of my mind ~ the last months are gone, truly no longer available. How would they stack up according to attaining God’s plan in my life? What have I accomplished for Him? How has my meeting time with Him each day been going? Am I truly focusing on just Him, or am I allowing distractions to lure me away from our precious communication?
Looking back, the month of July was like catch -up, because June was a month of total disarray. Much got accomplished as far as remodel and clean out, but every-day-time spent with my Lord was seriously disrupted. My spirit was not fed its normal diet of rich learning in the Word. I missed it.
In looking ahead the summer stretches out with a couple of trips and some goals to accomplish, but I plan quiet time with my God each day. The importance of spending daily quality time with our Lord is crucial, for it is paramount to every aspect of our life. Simply put, His input is a requirement for the best outcome in every area, in every situation, in every moment. Time spent with God, when in the morning, puts a kick start to our day! It gives Holy Spirit permission to be our personal guide through every challenge, every possible danger, and every choice we have to make. With Holy Spirit leading, we all can receive God's best and arrive wherever the Father wishes us to be, and there can be no better place!
Father, You always surprise us. We don’t have to know what You have for the day, we just trust and desire Your strategy to be revealed during it. Each morning as the day begins, we will be waiting for your message, Your will, to guide our path for that day. Following You one day at a time will get us to the place You have in mind. This morning we simply choose to be governed by You in each minute. We trust You Lord!
Thank You Lord for giving us the opportunity to grow in You as You grow in us each day. One day we will reach the ultimate objective: to arrive in Your heavenly Kingdom and to help as many people as we can along the way - especially to help bring them knowledge of You.
