To-do’s and To-don’ts

Dirty dishes in my sink,

piles of clean laundry to put away,

bedding that needs to be washed,

dog hair that needs to be vacuumed,

grass that needs to be mowed.

Dinner as a family,

my little boy whispering prayers before bed,

catching up on snuggles from my almost teen,

time with my husband,

being obedient to You.

 

Jesus, my heart is thankful that you teach me everyday.  It’s so hard to release the pressure of what the world thinks we’re supposed to do and follow hard after You.  I don’t want my family or my friends to feel like they fall behind my to-do list.  Help me create time to do what is necessary to show them all my love and caring of them – the to-do’s and the to-don’ts.  In Your Powerful Name, Amen!

High Upon a Rock

For in the day of trouble
   he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
   and set me high upon a rock.

 Then my head will be exalted
   above the enemies who surround me;
at his tabernacle I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
   I will sing and make music to the LORD.- Psalm 27:5-6 (TNIV)

Lord, thank you for the security of knowing no matter what I may face – you are on my side.  You will deliver me.  I pray to surrender my will to Yours’.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Live Like That

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.  My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. -John 15:11-13 (TNIV)
 
Lord, I think many of us desire to live like THAT.  The standards in which we strive to meet reflect Christ in us, but in our brokenness we fall short.  Please help me surrender these moments to you instead of enslaving myself to them.  ‘For when I am weak, I am strong.’  Amen.

He is Risen!

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.  For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.  The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.  In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.- Romans 6:8-11 (TNIV)

Father God, today I am thankful for the life, death, and the resurrection of your son, Jesus.  Forgive my lack of understanding of this gift.  Help me accept the grace and mercy poured out to me!  Holy Spirit help me live a life that shines a light on the Good News!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
