The Day Ahead

by | Apr 13, 2011 | God's blessings, schedule, thankfulness

I had a few extra minutes this morning to myself…which is kind of strange.  I usually don’t, as my mornings are busy getting everyone, including myself, ready for the day.

Zach had early morning soccer practice, so we left our home at 6:13 to get him to his friend’s house with whom we carpool with for practices during the week.  I was able to come back home, get two loads of laundry going, and still had a few minutes before getting in the shower.

My devotional today spoke volumes to me today.  I’ve been reading each day from Sarah Young’s “Jesus Calling.” Part of today’s reading was, “Be thankful for quiet days, when nothing special seems to be happening.  Instead of being bored by the lack of action, use times of routine to seek My Face.  Although this is an invisible transaction, it speaks volumes in spiritual realms.  Moreover, you are richly blessed when you walk trustingly with Me through the routines of your day.”

“Be thankful for quiet days, when nothing special seems to be happening.”  I needed to read that this morning, as I look forward to the day ahead of me.  I enjoy Wednesdays, and they are usually very routine for me.  I have Bible Study Fellowship this morning.  I will leave from there and go to Mission of Hope.  At noon I lead a Bible Study at the Mission.  I will pick up Zach after school and take him back with me to the Mission.  Before and after picking Zach up, I’ll be helping whomever comes through the Mission’s doors.  We will leave for Zach’s club soccer practice after my day is done at the Mission, will return home to workout, and have dinner together as a family.  And I will watch American Idol tonight. 🙂 That is my normal Wednesday.

I guess, as I take a look at it, my Wednesdays are filled with God, His Word, the calling He’s placed on my life, and my family.  What a blessing all of this is to me!  I’m very, very thankful this morning!

I’m excited to see what God is going to do today!  I’ll keep you posted!  I wish YOU a great day!  May God bless you today!!
