Psalm 16:8 I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. (NKJV)
I begin each morning in this order – – coffee, devotional reading from the Daily Bread, Bible reading and then prayer.
My prayer today was that I please God in thought, word and deed. Nothing to it, or ‘That was easy’, as a certain company jingle tells us.
Next I sit at my computer, ready to read newly arrived emails. And I sit. And sit And – – “come on computer, don’t start my day working at a snail’s pace. I’m not sitting here to waste time”. My, that was easy – I’ve blown my good intentions already and the day has just begun.
“Whoops, Lord – sorry. It didn’t take much for me to forget”.
How easy it is to plan our day, and how easy it is to allow distractions to destroy them.
Prayer: Help us focus on what is good today. Let us follow Your directions so, at the end of our day, we end our day knowing we have done our very best, in all ways. Let us then justly claim that ‘that was easy’. Amen.
