Open Your Shades
Your mind is either going towards having fun,
the details of life and the stuff you have to do,
your day starts with a very conscious decision
and an asking of God,
“Today is another day to know You.
Please show Yourself to me
through the circumstances of life.
Please show me who I am.
This day, I want it to be about You....
not just about stuff, but about You.
Help me see You.
Help me learn something else about You.
Help me learn something else about me that I can
get rid of, that will help me know You better.”
NOW, you have started your day on the right foot.
Then it’s not a matter of changing the activities
that you are doing, necessarily.
It is a matter of making sure that
you are going to pursue God in those activities.
