A Busy Day Ahead

I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. Psalms 3:5

This verse jumped out at me today. I have a lot on my mind. My desire is to make right choices and get all the things done that I’ve committed to do. This verse reminds me that I wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for God. He is the creator. I am his created. I woke up this morning because the One who created me wanted me to wake up. That’s rather exciting, don’t you think?

Lord, you sustain me. May I never forget that every breath I take is because you want me to breathe. Forgive my notions that I have any real choice in my existence. Just as a brand name on a toy often speaks of its quality, may your reputation be evident in the quality of my life today.
