No Status Quo

Father, thank You for a beautiful day yesterday. It may have been over cast, cold and windy but it was beautiful! Thank You for the privilege of being a part of my niece’s wedding and the many people and things it entailed. May Your blessings be upon this union and may You use them in a mighty way as they continue to strive to live their lives for You!

Psalm 37:23-24 (<<click here)

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.

None of us knows what the future holds. We make plans as to where we want to be at points in our lives but truly only You know what directions our lives will take, Lord.

As I sit here rocking and I think of Megan and Gus and their lives together, I would pray that they would “dream big.” They are two unique individuals who have chosen to blend their gifts, talents, abilities and personalities to be used of You.

As they begin this journey together may they hold tightly to Your hand. Their lives will but full of many wonderful things but trials will come as well. May they be ever drawn to You through it all. May their relationship with You be so strong and vibrant and real and impacting that You shine through it all.

Lord, may none of us be satisfied with the easy or the expected. Help us to seek Your heart. Help us to push the envelope in how we live our lives. Help us to not settle for the status quo.

An old hymn comes to mind. “God of grace and God of glory, on Thy people pour Thy power…Grant us wisdom, grant us courage, for the facing of this hour.”
