I say Amen.

“Walk out into the daylight sober, dressed up in faith, love, and the hope of salvation.” 1 Thessalonians 5:8

imageI often read from several devotional resources before I write a Daily Meditation Moment. Often I find synchronicity in the messages—like today. From Marianne Williamson’s book “Everyday Grace” the topic I read today was from a chapter called “8:00 a.m. Starting the Day.” To jump start your day, I quote the prayer at the end of the chapter:

“Dear God, I give you this morning. Please take away my despair of yesterday. Help me to forgive the things that caused me pain and would keep me bound. Help me to begin again. Please bless my path and illumine my mind. I surrender to You the day ahead. Please bless every person and situation I will encounter.

Make me who You would have me be, that I might do as You would have me do. Please enter my heart and remove all anger, fear and pain. Renew my soul and free my spirit. Thank you, God, for this day. Amen.”

And, I say Amen, too.
