Thank you for yesterday, Father. The opportunity to help a friend in need, getting things done for worship, a nice supper with Karen and completion of church business at our meeting last night made for a very full day! But You were with me from beginning to end, what a blessing! I look forward to this day and what we will tackle together. Use me as You will.
1 Timothy 6:17-19 (<<click here)
Lord, we are abundantly blessed – and our blessings are not just monetary in nature. Many are blessed with family, with love, with joy and peace – there are so many things for which to be thankful. We may be blessed but are we willing to share with those who are less fortunate?
Each day at Kohl’s I have choices to make. Will I share my blessings or keep them to myself? Joy is a highly valued commodity. Sometimes life and the way we address it depletes our store of joy. Lord, may I be generous in my dispersion of the overabundance of joy in my heart.
Sometimes love is hard to find. Many are lonely and destitute. People many times have no family and few friends or possibly the family or friends they do have are oblivious or apathetic to their need for love. And many times people are just plain hard to love. Lord, help me to see people as You see people – to peer through the crusty layers of grumpiness or anger to the core of people’s being and to love them even in the their “unloveliness”.
Yes, Lord, many of us are very “wealthy” and we are wealthy in many ways. Help us not to be hoarders and hermits but may we be generous givers so we may enrich the world with You!
