“A person’s steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way” Proverbs 20:24
Father, my life can be so hectic sometimes and I am so easily distracted. I have found distraction to be a subtle thief of present opportunity. I need You to help me be present instead of mentally wandering too far into the future or lagging back in my past. Today is a new day and You have a path You want me to walk. I surrender to You. Carry me along by the wind of Your Sovereign Spirit. Help me not to tip the scale of today with more than You intend. Grace me to give each human encounter the respect it deserves. Do not let me poison this fresh day with worry that would rob today of it’s joy. You said You are an ever-present Help. May this knowledge help me to be present as I rest in You and give this day my best.
