This week’s quote is:
“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing yet had been done.” ~ C. S. Lewis
This quote got me thinking that as a human being it is very easy to become self-reliant. It is easy to go through a whole day without thinking of my creator, my God. In order to realize my need for God I need to go to Him everday, empty myself and say whatever you would have me do today I’m willing to do it. Whatever it is you want me to do I’m sure you will provide the means and the capacity for it to get done. I am willing. Here I am. What do you have for me today? I might have failed yesterday but today is a new day and I’m here Lord and I know you are there, so forgive me and please use me today to accomplish whatever I can for You. Please give me your eyes to see the people you put in my path today. My husband, my children, the grocery checker, the driver in front of me, the mailman, the homeless beggar on the street, the mean kid at the park. Lead me to show them your love. I’m relying on You Lord to give me the strength and the desire and the love to accomplish small and large things for you. Today maybe it’s just a smile, a pat on the hand, a word of encouragement, a load of laundry. Tomorrow something different or maybe just the same. Lord help me never to forget to come before you, to worship you, to praise you, to honor you in word and deed, and to obey you. Help me to know I need to do this everyday, every hour of the day.
I’m adding this quote by our pastor in California that goes along with these thoughts.
Stop for a minute! Today God wants to supply his grace to you so that you will have the power to respond to the challenges and relationships of life in a way that brings honor and glory to God and joy to your heart” (c.) by Steve Larson ~ 90 Days to Change Your Life – (week 2)
Well this is where this quote took me. I’m looking forward to see what others have to share.
