Up To Know Good on Monday
August 28, 2006
As I walked through the grocery store, I looked at the sale tags, my list, and my stack of coupons. Finances had been tight, and I was trying to buy groceries with a third of my normal budget. Feeling stressed, I walked through the produce section debating about what and how much should go in my cart. As I picked up each item, I prayed, Should I get this, God? As I reached for some potatoes and silently said my prayer, I realized that this was the lesson God wanted to teach me. Pray about everything, even potatoes!
Do Good - As soon as you feel stressed today, stop and pray for help. Also, when something in your day goes well, say a prayer of thanks!
Though my stress didnt disappear right away, I was able to realize on another level how much God wants to be a part of EVERYTHING in our lives. What a great feeling to have Him intimately involved, even with my grocery shopping.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. Ephesians 6:18a. Click here to read more.
Jesus, thanks that You want to be a part of all areas of our lives. We invite You in today through our prayers.
Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.
I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
