Pausing to reflect on what the Lord has done just seems fitting today. It should be fitting everyday, but we just get so busy with trivial things that we forget.
Paul said it so well in his letter to the Philippians; Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies. (Philippians 4:8-9 Message)
The things we think on determine how God weaves us into His tapestry. The beautiful harmonies of the song He’s written, will be the note we represent. The choices I make today could effect not only me, but others who are destined to cross my path. What a beautiful thought.
Today I will scroll through the pages of my week and be thankful. For every single time I didn’t sleep through the night allowed me to help my husband who only a little while ago was not in my bed, but in a hospital bed alone.
For every day I looked across the table and was able to share a meal with the man God gave me in covenant. I’m thankful not just for the food, but for the gift of covenant keeping promises.
I consider the Promise Maker to always be the Promise Keeper. He said that He would satisfy us with long life and show us the deep magnitude of His redemptive salvation. I pause and think on that.
Thank You my gracious Father for being such a wonderful, faithful Father. How deeply I love You and am thankful for each brush stroke in my life. You have made me beautiful in Your sight and I lift up my song of worship to You.
Until Next Time,
