If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Thought for the Day: Through God, we can be changed
He said, “You seem so different now.” As we sat at a meal together, my husband said I was different and that there had been an obvious change. He was right and I know why. In January when I was prompted by God to begin writing and delving into scripture and devotionals more, I changed. My morning of getting ready for a school day became an exciting morning of reading, praying, and writing. I began feeling out of sorts if I missed that time and I will get up very early in order to have that time. Today, it is so much a part of me that I have to include that time in order to begin my day in God’s way. Now, after all of these months, I have felt something else happen. This shy girl will now go up to people who I know have been hurting or ill to give them a hug and to talk a few minutes. I have learned that those talks are God’s words for me in that moment. Am I different? Most definitely. My daily time with God has made me different, and I can’t go a day without my special time.
God has shared so much with me over the past ten months through my reading of scripture and in the words He has given me to write. My faith has grown to the point that everything I witness seems to be from Him. I have seen miracles that I know could not have come from anywhere except from Him. I have seen people hurt and grieve, but know that God is standing right beside them. My family has gone through transition, but I know that God has led us through and soon we will be in a new place that He has ordained.
Prayer: God, thank you for letting me spend time with you each day. You begin my day, everyday, with words that sustain me as I go through my work time and my family time. Be with me today to see You in everything and to see You in all of my circumstances. Amen
