Length of Days - Search for Freedom

Tuesday, October 25, 2011


My Monday morning is usually spent in writing my Only-Line Devotional and Prayer. Yesterday, however, I spent the first day of a two-day retreat in Indianapolis with other members of a Christian board of which I am a member. But, the beauty of Mondays, like all beginnings, is that we can begin anywhere. It doesn’t matter what our circumstances are, God gives each of us another beginning. There are as many excuses for not living a life of service to God as there are those of us who give them, but none of it matters. All we have to do is accept the gift of a new day. Let light shine into your new birthday in Christ. Let us pray:

“Father God, we praise your holy name. We pray that this is the day when we begin, begin again, or again and again, so that you may take over our lives as King of Kings. Give us courage for the tasks ahead for we live in difficult times. While we walk through this troubled world, let each of us bring your love, your peace, and your healing to others along the way. Help us love the unloving, care for those who reject our care, and sing songs of praise to you to those who are not ready to listen. May we be able to teach those who believe they know all the stories, love those who think they perfectly love, and forgive those who have not asked for our forgiveness. The path we walk will not be easy, but with you at our side, it will be the way of Love and Life. In the name of Jesus Christ, your son and our redeemer we pray. Amen”
“God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine.”
