what is my average day like?
i wake up to a mind dialogue with God at half past six in the morning and begin my day from there. (i normally speak to Him in my sleep, albeit in fragments, so when i wake up, it is not surprising that i would be picking up the last segment of conversation with Him.)
then i grab my laptop and start my daily readings — from the Kerygma family, to RC. Net, and My Utmost For His Highest. then i ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten my understanding, speak to me, and guide me.
depending on my mood and schedule for the day, i may either write my blog immediately or go down to watch my grandkids eat. or, if my daughter is on skype, we chat.
i leave for work at around 9 a.m. although i may have a list to do, i often merely go with the flow. i discuss business with my kids and my manager… do a bit of buying, if needed… check production… meet with people…. make calls… etc. and if i’m lucky, i squeeze in tea or lunch with a friend or two and have a laugh.
before i know it, it’s time to go home.
a few more hugs and games with the grandkids. dinner with the family. surf the net. facebook. yoga. exercise. meditate. sleep.
another day over.
where does God fit in? in all my activities, He is in my head and my heart. whatever outcomes i face, my thoughts revert to him– in praise, thanksgiving, or supplication.
when something makes me happy, i think of Him instantly. when something upsets me, He is the first to know.
“behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters . . . , so our eyes look to the Lord our God . . . —Psalm 123:2
our spiritual strength begins to be drained when we stop lifting our eyes to Him. “ — My Utmost For His Highest
Lord God, i know that i am not spending enough time with You than would please You and i am sorry. but, thank You very much for my new venture which has seemed to take precedence over everything else. it is a gift i never dreamed of having. i get tense and impatient because of it but i am also excited and happy because of it.
so please, be with me, dear Jesus, because i cannot function properly without You.
thank You for the angels You send my way to help me through the difficulties that come with it. let me see You and hear You in everything i do and everyone i meet. grant me the grace to offer all back to You at the end of each day — for Your pleasure and glory.
please, bless my work, my family, my friends, my acquaintances, my workers, my home, and all that matters to me that we all may do our part in making this world a place of love, progress, and peace. amen.”
