my day off

I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
               (Psalm 121:1-2 ESV)

I do not know how anyone gets through a day without a relationship with the Lord. He is my help and strength.

When I speak of relationship I am not talking about a spiritual experience, I am talking about abiding in Him completely.

The creator of the universe created ME, one person among billions, why?  Because he wants me to know Him intimately.  That takes intentional discipline.  I am weak and easily distracted, more than most.

This morning I have decided to go through my day off trying to look at everything I encounter through the eyes of the creator.  What will I see?  This is what I think I will see based on my plans...

  • people that are lonely
  • people that have no hope
  • beautiful fall nature trying to point people toward a creator
  • more food than anyone should eat
  • my family that I fall deeper in love with each day
  • a church that loves the Lord and serves the community and even this day is training leaders, even leaders from other ministries!! (Crossroads - just stopping by!)
I pray I can keep His eyes throughout my day - and beyond that have Christ-like reactions to all the people I encounter!
