Last week’s topic looked at all the things we try to balance in life and our desire to have equilibrium. I shared how one focus had to weigh more than others, in order for the rest to fall in place in a balanced and harmonious way.
That one focus is the One. Jesus Christ. I shared the noticeable difference in my day when I put Him first. This is not always easy to do and requires an actionable effort on my part.
I make it a point to start my day with a devotional written by Sarah Young.
In today’s Breadcrumb, I’d like to share one of the devotions from this past week and encourage you to reflect on it and remember it as you start your days. Doing this is a proactive approach to achieving peace and balance throughout your day.
“Seek My face at the beginning of your day. This practice enables you to “put Me on” and “wear Me” throughout the day. Most people put on clothes soon after rising from bed. Similarly, the sooner you “put Me on” by communicating with Me, the better prepared you are for whatever comes your way.
To “wear Me” is essentially to have My mind: to think my thoughts. Ask the Holy Spirit to control your thinking; be transformed by this renewal within you. Thus you are well-equipped to face whatever people and situations I bring your way. Clothing your mind in me is your best preparation for each day. this discipline brings Joy and Peace to you and those around you.”
With Memorial Day approaching Monday, May 31st, I would like to conclude with the following thoughts.
Christ’s death on the cross has provided us with the ultimate freedom, freedom from our sins and eternal life with Him. Living in a free country affords us the opportunity and the right to openly worship and honor Him.
With my deepest gratitude, I remember and honor all of our veterans who gave their life to serve and protect our beloved country. The United States of America, one Nation under God, owes the privileged freedom we have been blessed with to those brave and heroic men and women who fought for this cause.
I am forever indebted to the members of my family and to all veterans. Because of their unselfish service, I was born, raised and continue to live in a free country.
When I feel like these rights are threatened and in jeopardy, I remember that we can only see what is in front of us. God sees and controls the whole vision. Let us be mindful that with God, all things are possible.
God bless our veterans.
God bless and protect our country and everyone reading.
