Good Morning, Lord – I’ve done my “reading” for the day, but I didn’t really pay attention to what you were saying. What do you want me to do in my Sunday to Saturday life? Where does service to you fit? And what about enjoying the world around me while I rest? How about spending time with you?
I was going to say, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.” But then I began to question whether I really am your servant or am I just doing what I want to do to “serve you?” Open my eyes, Lord, to what you want from me.
Child – I want YOU – all of you. I want you to come to Me first, to listen to my voice as I speak to you through all you will experience today.
You cannot successfully “do” for Me without first coming to Me for my strength and wisdom. Otherwise it will only be straw and stubble rather than precious metal. You are mine. You know you’ve been bought with a price yet you have tried to run away from your chosen status.
You are special to Me and I still have much for you to “do,” but not without Me and my power and direction. There is a balance between quiet time, action and recreation. I will show it to you as you listen and walk with Me.
I am with you so don’t be afraid or dismayed. I am your God. I am strengthening you, helping you and holding you up with my righteous right hand. You will not and cannot fail as long as you keep your hand in mine.
I am making the way. I am pleased that you seek Me. Since I am your source for everything you need to handle all you will encounter, wouldn’t it be foolish to ignore Me? Come with Me. Don’t fight the yoke. It’s easy with Me in the other half.
I love you, child. Just hang on. We’re going blessing!
