No, no…you haven’t got your dates wrong.
Ever since I was a little girl, September has marked the beginning of a new year. This is the month that heralds my favourite season and this is the time when walking into a Staples store just gets me excited — new notebooks and markers and erasers and binders . . . and I’m not even in school! 🙂
I wonder what God’s got in store for me this year.
One thing I know for sure — I want to be “all there” in the right places. I don’t want to miss a minute of the life God intends for me.
I don’t want to be distracted by the good and miss out on the best.
My schedule is cleared, there is no keep-doing-the-same-thing-because-that’s-what-I’m-supposed-to-do” busyness. I’m not looking to fill my fall calendar but I’m also acutely aware of not wasting my life.
So, I’m praying.
In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. Psalm 5.3
Praying about my days. My marriage. My family. My friendships. My commitments. My church.
Praying about my heart.
