On this new day, this gift from God we are reminded that often time our minds are so preoccupied with the things of this world that we are missing life as it’s happening.
Everywhere around us are people that need a boost of encouragement, love, compassion, or prayer. If our minds are saturated with anxious thoughts, we are not being present in the moment, and we will miss the opportunity to witness. Only when we cast our cares on the Lord, we will have the ability to focus on the people around us that are silently crying out for a touch of Jesus.
Heavenly Father, forgive me for worrying so much and not casting my cares on you. Lord, I know it’s ok to have thoughts, but I desire to submit all my thoughts to you. Lord, help me be more aware of when I’m not being present. Help me be sensitive to your voice and not miss an opportunity to witness or extend your loving grace to someone. Help me be mindful of my atmosphere and give me a gentle reminder when I’m getting in your way. Lord, I love you and I earnestly desire to do Your will.
