I awoke with somewhat negative feelings this morning, perhaps from thinking too much about my books and or on the problems I’m having with my workers.
However, my feelings are not the measure of reality. You, Lord, are the measure. So, instead focusing on these very temporary matters, I want to be thinking on you, Lord Jesus, to be rejoicing in you and who you are throughout the day.
And who are you? You are the eternal One, always there; the Righteous One, always doing what is best; the Holy One, always working from right motives; the Mighty One, towering over every creature; the Glorious One, doing mighty and magnificent works; and the Beautiful One, infusing your creation with your stunning beauty.
Therefore You only deserve our love, our devotion, our worship, our obedience, our fervor, our focus.
I praise you that you consistently work to lift our eyes from the temporary to the Timeless, from the minuscule to the Majestic, from the created to the Creator.
You are the One to be worshiped and I repent of thinking so much about sales and success., the lies and laziness around me.
Help me today to keep my eyes on you, my head in the Book and my feet on the ground.
