Morning Prayer, Friday, February 22, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: MY GREATEST DIVINE CONNECTION
Father God, thank You so much for being my great connection day in and day out. Amen
“When I wake up each morning, I thank God for having my back that day." Long ago as I made my way from being a young girl who was used to having someone tell me what to do, to gaining my freedom and making my own choices, I found out all too soon that I really was clueless. I thought that I knew the answers to life and the way that I should go. I thought I was in charge of me. I thought I was grown. Little did I know at the time that in this world of ours which gets crazier by the minute, I need more than just my knowledge and strength to make it. Here I was turning to friends, co-workers and the like when I had problems believing they were my backup in the storm. They had my back. Now because my grandmother had brought me up in the church, I knew about God. My relationship with Him just wasn’t’ as strong as it should have been. There does come a day though when you are faced with a strong enough storm that you have to go beyond the ordinary means of survival to find a greater connection. Believe me, I had more than one of those instances. As most of us do sometimes, from the beginning, I was a little slow in getting it, and so I didn’t fully embrace God’s way as I should have so I did a bit of slipping and sliding. I hit my head, bumped my head, twisted my ankle, cried a little, and got frustrated a lot. You know how we do. I bring up again that the Bible says “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will fall back on it.” I had that training. The knowledge was in me and one day, thank God, I opened myself up to allowing that greater connection to lead the way. These days, I know who has my back in the storm and you know what, He has never failed me yet. Praise God!
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
