Dear Lord, help me face this day with a spirit of optimism and thanksgiving. And let me focus my thoughts on You and Your incomparable gifts. AMEN!
Let your eyes look forward; fix your gaze straight ahead.
Those who hope in the Lord with renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both begun and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed, that exhilarating finish in and with God, he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God.
He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned. The Lord God has opened my ear. Isaiah 50:4-5

Dear Lord, every day of my life is a journey with You. I will take time today to think, to pray, and to study Your Word. Guide my steps, Father, and keep me mindful that today offers yet another opportunity to celebrate Your blessings, Your love, and Your Son. Amen.
Be a blessing,
