This morning I got done praying and only 5 minutes had passed, so I meditated for the last 5. I didn’t expect this, but it was hard to get to 10 minutes today. Not sure why. Maybe I was eager to share what God told me during the prayer. I was able to expand on those thoughts in the meditation. Read on for God’s “thought of the day” for me. At least this is what I heard.
Be thankful, grateful, hopeful and polite.
Thankful – I need to remember to thank God, as opposed to just asking for things.
Grateful – I need to remember that I am blessed. I need to remember that if God had not intervened when He did, I could be dead right now. I won’t dwell on a war story. Let’s just say, I had some vices in my life that almost killed me about 14 years ago. It’s the main reason I am who I am today.
Hopeful – In my prayers, I need to have a hopeful victorious attitude, not one that is asking for things and talking to God in a timid way. God created the universe, surely he can protect my family, give me a good leadership temperament, etc…
Polite – This is something I have been working on. I need to remain courteous and polite with everyone I encounter. I think for the most part I am, but I certainly have room for improvement. My kids tell me this at times when we are out. I need to pay more atttention to people.
That’s where I’m at. I’ll post a wrap-up again tonight. Thanks for reading!
