Such sweetness shared through these words. Let’s enjoy the moments that come along gifting us with such feeling awareness. The joy of being alive is at hand.
THOU MAKEST THE OUTGOINGS OF THE MORNING AND EVENING TO REJOICE
When we are engaged in being unified within ourselves inner and outer with the Lord we find there is a wonder and joy in living. There is a song in our heart as it is said. To be unified inner and outer does take something. It takes a review each evening of our doings for the day. In this review things such as what and how we ate as well as the successes, victories and challenges we faced are good to consider. When we consider them we can acknowledge what we did well and also what we can do better. Ending with a written prayer to the Lord is also helpful to put the day to rest and to set the stage for the next day. As we continue self tracking with prayer we find joy and rejoicing increasingly in our outgoings in the morning and the evening. Lets stay in such a way!
FOR THEY SHALL WISELY CONSIDER OF HIS DOING
Look at the trees. Look at the grass. Look at the land and the water and the sky. When we really look we can see the wisdom of the Lord’s doing. Let us so be awed by it and know and share in the wonder of it.
O GOD, THOU ART MY GOD; EARLY WILL I SEEK THEE
Early will I seek Thee. These are good words to ponder. What does it mean to seek early? Seeking early relates to putting first things first. God really is the source of our animation that causes any of our feelings and any of our thoughts even to be. When we do not put emphasis first on that which is of God we will find our thoughts jumbled and our feelings disturbed. Putting emphasis first on the things of God does relate to putting first attitudes of thankfulness, understanding and even forgiveness. As we align ourselves accordingly we will be early in seeking the Lord and consequently the Lord can then find us in providing what is needed in every moment our living. A former boss of mine would tell us that “if we are not early we are late.” Being early does prevent the need to nervously play catch up during our days as well as putting us in the rhythm that makes for grace and peace.
