Sometimes I feel like I say the same things over and over. I guess it’s because I DO say things over and over, like use an inside voice or brush your teeth or take your finger out of your nose. I say that about 843 times each day.
I say these things again and again because my kids get distracted. They know what they are supposed to be doing but the Nerf gun on the floor grabs their attention or their Webkinz puppy calls from cyber-space. They get distracted.
But I get distracted.
Today, this day, I need to be reminded of true things because stuff will happen.
The daily lists and chores and errands and kids will happen. And they happen loud and quick. Disease and betrayal and death may knock, aiming to steal my footing. But regardless, I have choice with every single moment of today.
In this day, by His grace, I want to choose to believe what He says. Because His Word works.
Believing His love to be over me and surrounding me causes the fear to bow down. Casting all my cares upon Him brings peace that passes all earthly understanding. His Word is true. And when we choose to meditate upon it and reckon it so, blessing flows.
In the moments of this day, I’m telling myself the true things…again. Because, no doubt, stuff will happen.
What promise are you actively believing today?
