Good morning, I love you, have a Blessed day.

Morning Prayer, Friday,

WILL YOU RECOGNIZE YOUR BLESSING?

“Lord, if it is not Your will for me, let it slip through my grasp."

All too often, we pray and ask God for blessings, but when they show up, we do not not recognize them. Why do you think that is? The Israelites prayed for years for deliverance from the hand of the Egyptians. Finally, their day of deliverance came. God sent Moses to lead them out of Egypt into the land He had promised them. The problem here is yes, they prayed to be delivered but they had their own ideas about what that deliverance would look like. They wanted God to bring them out, but what they didn't seem to want is Him to tell them what to do once they were out.

As a result, many of them never made it into that land of milk and honey promised to them. In fact, they continued to wander in the desert until they died. What are you missing all because your mind is made up on what your blessing should look and feel like when it arrives? The job you think should be yours may not be what God is planning for you. The spouse you think would be your dream may not be the same one God chooses for you. We have to open ourselves up to seeing life through God's eyes and accepting whatever He sends our way. Don't be so caught in your own mind and what you want that you miss your blessing. Pray to know and accept God's good and perfect will for your life.

Prayer:
Father God, forgive me for times when I pray with a made up mind. Amen

Scripture:
Romans 12:2
In your Relationship what are You:

A Freeloader

A Renter

A Buyer

Morning Prayer, Thursday,

DOING THE RIGHT THING

“Knowing what is right does not mean much if you do not do what is right"

Standing on the side of right is sometimes hard, especially when it will not be beneficial to you. One of the things that my mother and dad tried to instill in us was integrity. We learned right from wrong early on in life. They tell you not to steal or lie. I can remember my mother saying quite often, "If you will lie you will steal and if you steal, you will lie." She believed that strongly. Parents get angry about a lot of things we do but the one thing that angers them most is when we tell a lie. That is not only just between a parent and child. I have heard married couples say something very similar.

Being honest and truthful means a lot. It goes a long way in life. It is a character thing. Good character means a lot to me. I want to be known as someone with integrity, choosing to do the right thing all the time, A business deal that benefits me financially at the expense of others does not shed a good light on me if I'm willing to take it. We can't step on others to get to the top. We can't cheat others to succeed. We can't lie only because it benefits us. Integrity says do the right thing even if it means you lose out. Fear can make us do what is best suited for us but if we trust God to open the way for us, we will not fear doing what is right. The choice is yours. I have had to make those hard decisions because I knew it meant me losing out but in the end, my conscience stepped in and I could not help but do right. Because I did, God opened wonderful doors for me.

Prayer:
Father God, doing the right thing is not always beneficial to me but I know it is what You would have me to do and my desire is to please You. Amen

Scripture:
James 4:17

Morning Prayer, Tuesday,

WE NEED GOD

“God will order my steps if I allow Him."

Life is full of twists and turns. We go through the Elementary years, then onto middle school, high school and some to college. In those years, our knowledge level grows. It helps in our careers, relationships and life in general. That is all great and wonderful but then comes the real life stuff where no matter how much book knowledge we have, we cannot figure some things out on our own. We need God. Some of us discover that early on while others of us stumble and fumble our way into it.

I planned to get married. I planned to buy a house. I plan to move across country. In fact, years ago, I did plan to move to Florida. Over and over again, I tried to no avail. Something always seemed to come up. Finally, I gave up because I could see that was not in God's plan for my life. The Bible says that a man plans his way it is God who orders his steps. What I have discovered is if I allow God to order my steps, things move along so much more smoothly. It is went I want to be in control that they fall apart.

Prayer:
Father God, even though I plan my life out, I am grateful that You order my steps because You know what lies ahead. Amen

Prayer:
Proverbs 16:9

Morning Prayer, Monday,

BE PATIENT

“Patience is not an absence of action. It simply waits on the right time to act."

One of the things many of us struggle with in this life is impatience. No one wants to wait whether it is in the drive thru, to hear whether we got a loan, or being stuck in traffic. We are just not that patient so it would stand to reason that if we are waiting on God to move in a situation and He seems to be taking too long, we get anxious. In traffic, if you are like my oldest daughter, you lay on your horn. Fast food, well, it's faster than going inside so we wait it out.

With God, you can't push and tug at His sleeve, lean on your horn or demand an answer.

You just have to wait it out. It's kind of like the unknown. You don't know when or how and that makes you crazy. That's when we tend to jump the line on God or maybe we think that is what we are doing, right? You know how you are ready to get married and so instead of you trusting God's timing on that, you go find yourself a "good man," or "woman." How many of us wish we could go back and start that reel over? Yep. Couple of those movies, because of my impatience, I yelled cut, too late. The pain was already there. The frustration was already there. Life is like that you know, a bad movie sometimes and other times a pretty good one. If I could just learn how to sit still and trust God. I'm trying Lord. Trying to be more patient. Trying to be more trusting. Trying to see life through Your lense and not mine only.

Prayer:
Father God, please help me to have the patience to know when it is the right time to act. Amen

Scripture:
Romans 8:25

Morning Prayer, Friday,

YOU GET TO CHOOSE

“When we intentionally choose God over everything, we live a life without regrets."

When I look back over my life, I can remember times when I dwelled too long here and dug in my heels there thinking I was on a good path. God let me go on because He could see I was determined. He will do that you know. From the moment of inception, God has a plan for each of us. He wants us to succeed. He wants us to be happy. He wants us to be at peace. The problem is in order to get in that place of good that God desires for us, we have to stay on the same page with Him.

That is not always easy because we have our hearts set sometimes on doing what pleases us and come hell or high water, we are not turning around. I'm trying to hold it down my way but from where I stay, that has not worked so well. When we look a round us at the craziness, now may be a good time for all of us to do a turn around. If you are going to cling to an idea or concept, how about clinging to God. How about seeking Him on whether or not you are headed in the right direction. Better late than never, right?

Prayer:
Father God, today, tomorrow and always, I choose You. Amen

Scripture:
Joshua 24:14-15

Morning Prayer, Thursday,

CHASING BAD

“When you stop chasing the wrong thing, you allow the rigtht things to chase you."

The title of this devotion makes me chuckle because when I think about it, we do spend a lot of time chasing the wrong or bad things. I know in the past, I have had my moments of chasing bad. I thought I wanted it but when I got it, either it was so wrong for me or when I came to my senses, it left painful memories behind. We don't always know what's good for us and a lot of times we want to blame everyone else for why our lives are jacked up. The problem is not the person or thing that is wreaking havoc in our life but the choices we made to get us to that point. We spend far too much time chasing bad things.

What does Solomon call it in Ecclesiastes 1:14, chasing after the wind. Whether we are chasing the wrong dream, the wrong job or the wrong relationship many of us can attest to the fact that we have at some point in this life, chased bad. It doesn't matter that EVERYONE around you knows that thing is not for you. All you know is right here, right now, you want it. That's how we do, you know. We spend too much of our life chasing bad, clinging to things we should let go. Maybe some of are still holding onto things or people we should have let go long ago. Ever think about it could be what is holding up progress in your life? Just something to think about.

Prayer:
Father God, if I am chasing bad, help me to see that it is wrong for me and let it go. Amen

Scripture:
Ecclessiastes 1:14

Morning Prayer, Wednesday,

GOD IS MY STRENGTH

“God is my strength and my strong tower."

Every day and in every way in my life, no matter what I am facing, I have come to learn that God is my strength. As the scritpure says, "When I am weak, he is strong." Sure, sometimes it does not feel that way but no matter how bad my situation, when I am weak, He is strong. I will make it through the storm because when I am weak, He is strong. I can smile when I want to cry because when I am weak, He is strong. Now there are other times when you know that God is your strength, that He is a Way Maker, a Deliverer, a Healer, a Heart Fixer, your Hope, and all in between.

You know that, yet some how no matter how much you pray or believe, you just do not feel strong. Those are the times when I want to believe but I can't. I want to smile, but I can't. I want to feel strong, but I can't. God knew just as with Job that there would be times in this life when we will get punched so hard, it almost takes our breath away. He knew there would be times when you would try to pray but your strength or faith was not there. I can't do any of this without You Lord. I've tried. It doesn't work for me to go it alone. I need You, in good times and bad, through the happy times and the sad. Thank You for being my strength in times of weakness.

Prayer:
Father God, thank You for being my strength in times of weakness. Amen

Scripture:
2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Morning Prayer, Tuesday,

BUT WHY?

“Information is liberating whether it comes first or second-hand."

When you were a kid and your mama said to you, "You boys can go out to play but only for an hour." You run and tell your brother. An hour passes and you say let's go home. "Mama said, one hour." He ignores you and keeps playing. When he comes in the door your mama gives him the beat down. His argument is "You didn't tell me to come inside in an hour, You told him." In a court of law, he maybe could win that argument, but standing in front of your mama, he is doomed. When Adam was in the Garden, God told him to stay away from this one particular tree. You see, Eve wasn't there when God told Adam not to eat from the tree.

[Genesis 2:16] She received the information second-hand. It makes a difference when we receive second-hand information, right? As long as my mother was telling me, "What God's Word says," it didn't have much meaning to me. When I learned that Word for myself, the relationship between me and God changed. So Adam tells his wife "We can't eat from this tree." Eve asks, "But why?" He knew that they shouldn't, yet he allowed his wife to convince him to disobey God. When God found out what they had done, He didn't say "Well, Eve didn't know so she is exempt." None of us are exempt. We are still held accountable whether the Word comes first hand, or second.

Prayer:
Father God, in life, I don't always understand why I shouldn't do a thing but I know it is the wrong thing. Help me to be strong in those times to do the right thing. Amen

Scripture:
Genesis 2:16-17

Morning Prayer, Monday,

WHAT'S DRIVING YOU

“Create in me a clean heart God, so that what flows from me is good."

All too often in life, the things that drive us is what is lying in the deepest recess of our heart. It may be stuff placed there from childhood, years on a job we hate, or a relationship that left a deep void of pain in our heart. We are not always aware that it is hidden away in our heart and is driving our motions and emotions. It is for this reason that from time to time, we should want to go through and do a spiritual cleansing.

Are you holding onto stuff you should have let go long ago? People hurt you, disappointed you, lied on you or mistreated you? A lot of us think we are just fine. "There is nothing wrong with me," we say. We are convinced that what lies inside of us has nothing in the world to do with who we are or how we behave right now. If Jesus told you there was a problem, would we believe him? To know that things from my past may be holding me back negatively, would certainly push me toward a mindset of change. If I am in any way, shape or form in denial Lord, please show me.

Prayer:
Father God, if what is coming from my heart is not right, please cleanse me. Amen

Scripture:
Matthew 15:18
