Psalm 34: 1-3. I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes it’s boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
I woke up this morning inside not out. I’m learning a new dance today, someone can’t move. Today I’ll sing a new song fully and completely, while someone lies in bed struggling with each breathe. Today, I’ll talk to my children at some point in the day. We’ll laugh, talk about the days events, our music, our plans; and when the conversation ends, there’s a guaranteed, “ I love you”, as we end. Someone hasn’t spoken to family, or friends in days, weeks, months, years. Today I’ll eat the food of my choosing, while someone else, though alive, won’t know to eat and will be spoon fed. Today I can choose to live while some in brokenness of spirit will only survive. I have family who loves me, friends who care, clothes to put on, and the freedom to do and be!
Today I’ll do my best, live my best. Because today I am grateful. Today I will smile. All is not perfect, all is not well. But today I have someone to tell. He’ll handle what I can’t. He said so. Today someone doesn’t know my secret. Today I must tell it! Will you be a witness for my Lawd? My soul, is a witness for my Lawd!
My prayer: Father, sovereign creator, here I am! Grateful! Today I am grateful. Let me be a witness for you. Thank you for promises I can claim! I give you everything I feel, hope for, am happy for, am confused about. Thank you!
