So I have this cold which has caused my head to feel like its going to explode which results in little to no sleep. I DID take NyQuil which helped, but I hate feeling groggy in the morning. Anyway, I got up this morning at 0450 and started my day. I actually LIKE getting up that early because I feel like I have plenty of time to read the things that get pushed aside during the day due to time constraints.
I read about the ObamaCare abortion fight in the supreme court, I read about Peter admonishing the gentiles to be Godly (1 Peter), I read about a baptist preacher warning against Rick Warren’s “Purpose driven Church”. I read about Appalachian State football playing at Clemson in 2015. I watched a video of some mountain bikers riding this EXTREME trail on the side of a cliff in China.
Then I put the iPad down and thought about what is REALLY gnawing at me at 0530 in the morning. It isn’t politics, it isn’t sports, it isn’t even finances. Its the thought of making sure I serve the Lord today. I just want to please my Father in heaven today, no more, no less. Yes, I miss my two daughters, yes, I miss my brothers and sisters. Yes, I’m worried about our church and the turmoil its going through at the moment.
I am starting my day, resting on these words: Psalms 5:11,12 NASB “But let all who take refuge in You be glad, let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, that those who love Your name may exult in You. For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord, You surround him with favor as with a shield.”
