Good morning, Amazing Family:
How grateful I am for each of you. As children of God, I know we want God to be pleased with how we live our life. At least, I know that I do.
When I first began taking my spiritual journey seriously, many years ago, I would wake up each morning and say these words, “ I love you, Lord. Thank you for giving me one more day to live for you. Tell me, Lord, how can I love on YOU today? Show me how to make you smile.“
Psalm 19 lets me know that I was not the first person to want to worship the Lord with my whole life.
Living Bible (TLB)
19 The heavens are telling the glory of God; they are a marvelous display of his craftsmanship. 2 Day and night they keep on telling about God. 3-4 Without a sound or word, silent in the skies, their message reaches out to all the world. The sun lives in the heavens where God placed it 5 and moves out across the skies as radiant as a bridegroom going to his wedding,* or as joyous as an athlete looking forward to a race! 6 The sun crosses the heavens from end to end, and nothing can hide from its heat.
7-8 God’s laws are perfect. They protect us, make us wise, and give us joy and light. 9 God’s laws are pure, eternal, just. 10 They are more desirable than gold. They are sweeter than honey dripping from a honeycomb. 11 For they warn us away from harm and give success to those who obey them.
12 But how can I ever know what sins are lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. 13 And keep me from deliberate wrongs; help me to stop doing them. Only then can I be free of guilt and innocent of some great crime.
14 May my spoken words and unspoken thoughts be pleasing even to you, O Lord my Rock and my Redeemer.
Today’s worship video by Steven Curtis Chapman falls in line with the same message. Lord, please allow your Love to dictate how I live my life for you. Perfect Love, you take over.
Go in peace and love, while joyfully serving the Lord.
In His Amazing Love,
Rev. Marcia F. Davis
