Lord, how can I serve you today?
I must admit, as much as I agree, I usually forget to do this.
Typically, my mind goes immediately to my To Do List. I begin a mental list of what needs to be accomplished and I begin ranking that list in order of importance. Sometimes I wonder if God just grins at my little mental Type A personality list and shakes His head in amusement.
Sure, my child, you get that list of yours organized…but I have other plans.
This is why I am beginning to see the beauty of first asking the Father what He wants me to put on my list for the day. What is it that He thinks is important? I wonder how many blessings I miss out on everyday because I become too preoccupied tending to my “must get this done” list?
There are benefits to starting off each day on the same page as our Creator.
So, whose To Do List are you looking at today?
My desire is for my day to begin with a simple question.
Lord, how can I serve You today?
but God‘s purpose prevails.
(Proverbs 19:21 Message)
