With this in mind, I start asking a question earlier: What is it I'm praying for today? What do I want to see happen in my life by the time today is history? As I pose these questions to myself and lay them before the Lord, here's what I came up with:
- I want to be aware of other people in my life. I want my eyes to be open to ANYONE the Lord might lead into my path that is in need of His touch.
- I long to share the hope of Christ with someone. Whether that's through sharing my story with them or listening to their story, I want to tell someone about Christ.
- I desire for my wife and children to know that they are more important than me - that I have put them before myself. This takes action.
Today, Monday, June 15, 2009 - this is what I desire.
Sure, these probably fall into the "Lifelong Goals" category as well, but today I am focused on today. Remember, today is trying really hard to stink! It's begging to not be remembered. But I'm not letting Monday off the hook so easily. I'm taking back this dreary, overcast, unproductive Monday and demanding something better!
How's your Monday going?
What are you praying & living for today?
