Good morning, Friends!
This week I have found out a number of things, good and challenging, that have made me say, “Wow!” I’m not quite ready to share, but you all know me. I will share soon. Lol Since I’m not sharing, you might be wondering why I’m writing at all. Well, I just wanted to reflect on God’s love through it all.
Although I know the importance I giving God the first moments of my day, I have not for quite some time. Not consistently anyway. Last week I downloaded the Proverbs 31 Ministries’ First 5 app. The app is free. It is designed to help us give God the first 5 minutes of our day. You can set your morning alarm on the app. When you wake up to hit the alarm, the app is up and ready to read. It is fantastic! Fantastic! The devotionals are quick, yet deeply poignant and inspiring. I am inspired to pray and seek God as soon as I’m done reading. I’m inspired to reflect on His word. I am inspired to share about His goodness and grace! I love it.
So, I say all that to say that God is awesome in His timing and preparation. This app came out just in time for me to have a prepared heart for all of the news that was coming my way. Each morning I start from a place of peace. I start from a place of reflection. I start from a place of trust in Him. While it may not be easy to deal with certain situation, or digest information, it is certainly easier when I am resting in Him. This week I have had to say, “God, I trust You. I trust your plan for my life. I trust that no matter how I’m feeling, you will give me peace if I ask for it. I trust that no matter how confused I am by this life and the day to day, that you know all and see all.
