As we start this last week of February, here are a few thoughts for us to chew on.
1.) God has brought us this far. If it were not for His grace, we would not be here.
2.) God is with us now, and now is all we need to focus on. This is the day that He has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. It is always today, so what are we going to do with it?
3.) God will be with us as we through each day, one day at a time. He has amazing plans for us. May we continue to seek Him throughout the day, talking to Him about whatever is on our mind or heart. We cry “God have mercy”, and He does.


    1. Here is what I wrote:
      “Lord, God almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth, Father, creator, savior, redeemer, rescuer, holy God. Father God, help us get close to You and to focus on You instead of ourselves and our circumstances. Lord, I have things and people on my mind, and I will talk to you about them all day. Right now, I just want to commit myself, Karen, and Your Kingdom to Your hands. Jesus, I do want to focus on You, but I get so easily distracted. Please keep drawing my attention back to you Jesus. Everything and everybody comes through Your hands and Your will. As it says in John 10:30, “I and the Father are one.” Lord, may YOU win the victory in and through me today. In Your name, I pray. Amen.”

  1. These observations remind me that I am working on being more dependent on God and less on my own understanding and choices. I am trying to trust and obey like a child, because we are His children and things go so much more smoothly when we follow Him rather than choosing our own paths. But, remembering to seek His will first…not always easy. God, please help me to put you first each day, to listen for Your will and to follow it. I know that is the recipe for my happiness, but I dart off in my own direction or block prayer with worry. You are so patient with me, Lord. Please help me to do better.

    1. That’s a good way to put that, Jill. We block prayer with worry. One thing I can do this morning to dial into Jesus is to write out a daily prayer and put it in my “sticky notes” program. I am going to do that next. Amen to all you said.
