what I learned today

I learned from my facebook friends that it was perfectly acceptable to eat bacon with my fingers...if you ever want to know anything just ask on Facebook! (remember I live in Central Ohio - blue collar to the max!) Anyway, that's not really all I learned today...
Seriously now...I learned no matter how organized I am, no matter how hard I work, no matter how good my intentions are - my plans are pointless without covering my day in prayer and time with the Lord first. As is the case many days, I blasted off from home with arms full and plans swirling in my head. As I sat down to being to work, I realized I had not adequately prepared. God had not been invited in to my day.

Back up...now I will begin again WITH Him.

4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. I John 2: 4 - 6

How many days have passed when my own agenda was ALL I thought of all day long? NOT TODAY get thee behind me busyness (satan)!

Prayer: "Lord, forgive me for living as if this day belongs to me. It is only by your grace that I even draw breath let alone try with feeble attempt to further your kingdom with my work. This is your day - please, let me be pleasing to you Lord!"
