IMG_0160Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning,

for I am trusting you.

Show me where to walk,

for I give myself to you.  Psalm 143:8 NLT

We can set the atmosphere for our daily living.  I feel like I am at my best when I take the time to set the stage for my day.  A good start begins with a prayer of thanksgiving to the Lord for another day; just taking a few moments before anything else to invite the Holy Spirit into my day.  Taking a brief time of thanksgiving and stillness in God to reflect on His goodness and His power makes all the difference.  My office and my car are places of peace where I listen to uplifting messages or encouraging music.  Inspirational notes and pictures of loved ones adorn my desk that keeps a smile on my face.  They are visual reminders of God’s blessings to me.   Throughout the day, I can keep soft music or something edifying playing in the background.   I want to surround myself with peace and reminders of Him.

I am thankful for this time and this place in my life.  I am thankful for the opportunity to surround my life with reminders of His love, mercy and goodness to me.  I praise God for another day.  I bless His Holy name for a day ahead filled with love, peace and joy that flows from Him.

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.  Psalm 103: 1-2
