This morning as I greeted the day, I asked the Lord – “What do you have in store for me today? What obstacles must I overcome? What beauty will touch my heart this day? Bless my work today O Lord. Bless York. Bless all the children and families who you will direct to our educational advocacy program. Bless all the young children in thy tender care. Bless our world. Make your face to shine upon us. O be gracious to us.
Thank you for loving me so much that you sent your one and only Son to die upon the cross. You are my rock, my hope, and my Salvation. Mold me and create an upright spirit within me. Forgive my transgressions and direct me to your grace. Give me the faith of at least the size of a mustard seed.
Hold me in your loving arms O Lord, and never forsake me. On the days where I feel like a lost sheep, search for me and bring me close to you. You are my rock and shield. Let me not forget.
Ready me for the day. Give me strength, courage, and steadfastness. I love you with my imperfect love. I raise my eyes to the heavens and search for you. I know you are here, surrounding me with your love. Guide me this day.
I thank you God for the people who will help and assist me today. Touch their hearts and minds so we may be a blessing to children and those in need. “Lead us on a level path, where we will not stumble.” Our hope is in you!
*I wrote this yesterday as I faced what I believed was going to be a difficult day with many obstacles and roadblocks. The Lord brought me a sense of calm and a sense of hope and a sense of peace. He sent me people who would listen and guide me. I made it through the day.
