my day off

Psalm 143:8 Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

You probably have guessed, I'm once again blessed to be in my favorite spot…

I saw this scripture this morning posted by a worship pastor that I talk to from time to time and it just resinated with me in the special place God has given me to renew and reflect.
My day off always starts in the right way when I begin here, with Him,  un-distracted and un-burdened.  It was also a very fitting verse based on recent conversions I've had - where I've tried to help lead others through times of transition and discussed trusting God as the key part of that decision making process.
Even if I'm not making life-changing decisions - we still make decisions that matter for eternity everyday.  Will I share my faith if given the opportunity or will I be too worried about people's opinion of me?  Will I decide what to watch on TV or the internet based on the fact that the Holy Spirit is right there with me - God himself dwells within me.  My body and mind are not my own.  How will I spend this day that I'll never have back again - working my hardest at the job God's provided and placed me in, or complaining about my job or circumstances?  
God knows exactly how many days, hours, minutes, seconds he's ordained me to live on this earth - they belong to Him not me.  Do I live that way - even when no one sees me?
That is my prayer this morning as I sit here soaking in His creation - worshipping Him for being God - that I live this day to glorify my God!
Let us all live a day of worship - blameless before Him - recognizing opportunities to live for Him - worshipping Him with our lives.  Have a great, great Monday!
