Woke up at 7:30, which was not to my liking, but I thank you for it anyway, Lord, a chance to praise by faith, to give you glory, to deny discontent, to reject selfishness and to negate negativeness. This is an opportunity to live in your Truth, Light and Love.
I praise you for this new day and for what you will do in it. Thank you for the opportunity to face the discontent of others with the calmness of trust, the rest of faith, the joy of truth. I certainly am weak, overly sensitive, touchy, easily effected by other’s words and attitudes. But I praise you for this weakness which is another chance to be strong in you, to recognize my sinful fear of man, to reject my natural desire to draw security and significance from people, and instead to live in protection and safety behind your shield of victory.
I praise you today for what will come to pass and what will not come to pass, for success and failure, for opportunities to forgive myself, to give you glory and to carry your blessings to others. Guide me in making decisions that will give glory to you: praise instead of complaining, thanks instead of self-pity, trust instead of fear, forgiving instead of anger, rejoicing instead of discouragement, obedience instead of rebellion. To you be honor in all.
