Good morning:) the sun has come up over the mountain in all of it glory, shining brighter than I have seen in a while, the skies are a magnificent blue with only a cotton ball cloud drifting by every now and again! The birds are in full symphony mode and my heart is full. I had odd dreams last night and was awake off and on for the most part so I am sure a nap is in my not to distant future. I love good dreams and wish I could stay in them forever but bad dreams make me feel restless and frustrated, hopefully my nap will be filled with goodness and I will slumber peacefully.
In prayer this morning I lifted each of you, I said my favorite prayer as it covers much of our woes and is a general prayer but a heart felt one, if you will pray it with me now...
Dear Lord, I thank You for this day.
I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning.
I'm blessed because You are a forgiving and understanding God.
You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for I have sinned.
I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Keep me safe from all danger and harm.
Let me start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day
and give my best in all that is put before me.
Clear my mind that I can hear from You.
Broaden my mind that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.
Let me continue to see sin through God's eyes
and acknowledge it as evil.
And when I sin, let me repent, and confess my wrong doing,
and receive the forgiveness of God.
And when this world closes in on me,
let me remember Jesus' example ---
to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.
It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do your Will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak.
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who refuse to share a word from You.
I pray for those that will read this and not use this in their lives.
I pray for those that will delete this without sharing it with others.
I pray for those that don't believe. But I believe.
I believe that God changes people and God changes things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
This is my prayer; I pray in Jesus' name.
You are loved so very much and you are so important in my life, may blessings be in abundance for you and yours. Have a day filled with sunshine and let your light shine for all to see. God bless you!!!!!
