Good Morning, Lord.

When I was younger, I often got frustrated that there was not enough time in the day to get what I wanted or needed to get done.  I put too much on my plate, and others put too much on my plate.  The American culture can expect more than feasible or healthy for one person in a given day.  From single working parents to professional coaches, we often put unrealistic expectations on ourselves and others.  Things can get out of control and frustrating fast.  We work feverishly to catch up only to fall back behind.  The cycle does not seem to end.  As parent of three young boys who need to be cleaned up after, life can become more than enough to disrupt the best laid plans. I have learned over the years, that it is a blessing to have a new day dawn.  Old frustrations can be dealt with using a new energy,  and a new chance to start again.

Lamentations 3:22–23 » The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

“Good morning, Lord!  Thank you for your provisions.  Bless us with the presence of your Spirit, and make our steps straight after your will.  Help us consider how to fulfill the day without being so easily frustrated and discouraged.  May we see the purpose of what You are doing in out lives.  Please give us the strength to sustain a path of good deeds and good intentions.”

God is good. I learned that He gives us the time to accomplish what He needs us do.  It is up to us to use our judgement to take on only those tasks which we are called.  What are you called to do?  Pray about it. Also, get wise advice from friends and colleagues that you know well.  Most of all, remember God is there for you, every morning, to encourage you to work for Him in His great kingdom.   Great is His faithfulness.  His mercies are there for you every morning.
