My Prayer for Today


Help me not to just rush through this day. Help me to see it as another opportunity to share a truth about You to my children. Instead of rushing to wash another dish, help me to see that Ivy is taking her first steps in life. Instead of running to grab the phone, help me to slow down long enough to see that Kyle just gave Chaz a hug and said sorry. Instead of getting frustrated that there is more stuff to pick up off the floor, help me to take the time to show the boys how to be responsible for their own things. Lord, I feel like my days are flying by, and before I know it, daddy is saying prayers with the boys again for bed. I want to take the time to thank You for all your blessings You have given us. It may not be much in the world's eyes, but I know that this is not my home and that You have something so much better than what any man could create here on earth. Help me to appreciate every day, every hour, every minute, that you have given me. I don't want to waste my days pining for things I may never have. When You bless me, help me to see that it is from You and not to take it for granted but to be thankful. Help me to live by Your Word and to be content. You have given me such an abundance of blessing. How did I ever deserve my husband, my children, my friends? You've given me so much. Even eternal life. Please let this be a new day in my heart, of thankfulness. Amen.
