Just like yesterday...

Good morning God,

It's me.  Just wanted to check in with you and let you know how much I appreciate you.  Just like yesterday, you stood by my side and walked with me.  You talked with me and held my hand.  You whispered sweet promises to me and assured me that the things of this world are forever fleeting and that your love is not only unconditional but eternal.

I am here at my desk again and longing to get through another day and another chance to honor and glorify your name.  Still uncertain on why you have me here at this point in my life, but as always, trusting that your purpose will prove fruitful for your Kingdom and not my will.

Help me to stay focused and to be there when that someone needs me in a personal or professional manner.  When that time comes, give me the words of wisdom and grace to let your light shine and speak with truth and love, compassion and understanding.  All these things I pray in your heavenly name, Christ Jesus, amen!

love ~
your humble servant

National Day of Prayer

GM blog family. The below msg is something I sent out to my staff this morning and wanted to share w/you. I'm here if you need me. However, I will not post my number for texting ;-)

Good morning staff,

Today is National Day of Prayer. I just wanted you to know that if there is something on your heart ~ mentally, physically, emotionally, financially or spiritually, that you are dealing with, I would like to pray for you. You can see me in private, text me, call me or e-mail me at prayer.request2010@yahoo.com

In this busy, crazy, consumed world, please know that you are not alone.
sent w/love

My Blue Mondays ~

As the morning appears and unaware that darkness
Has faded the pace quickens and I am forced to keep up

I eagerly await the day when You relieve me of this
Current assignment, the one where I’m still longing

Longing to know Your purpose for me, one that
I can better serve You, one that will matter

Or is it as simple as it is written in Your word
That serving You IS what matters most

Not trying to make sense of it all but to embrace
And trust, believe and walk in Your truth

Surrender and obey to the call of Your voice
Not wanting to be anywhere but where I am

Not wanting to change the circumstances because
It doesn’t feel comfortable according to my standards

Knowing that Your ways are not my ways and Your
Thoughts are surely not my thoughts

Praying and serving IS my purpose, praising You
In all situations and learning to be still and grow

Like the mustard seed in Matthew, surely my Faith
Will carry me through until I reach Your Kingdom

At that Glorious moment, none of this stuff will
Have any significance and will merely be forgotten

Rejoicing in Your presence will make everything
That occurred prior to that day so worth the REWARD
