Years ago, I made a decision to live each day for God; it’s part of my story.

So. I start my day by taking time to focus on God with a simple prayer:


You are present.

You never leave.

You never fail.

You are Life.

You are the Day.

I surrender the life You have generously given to me today.

I am Yours.

Thank You.

And. I spend time taking in Words that matter, allowing the message to give me a greater perspective, a strong mind, and the ability to face the day with strength and courage.

Do not be afraid or discouraged,

for the Lord will personally go ahead of you.

He will be with you;

he will neither fail you nor abandon you. (Deuteronomy 31:8, NLT)

So, as I approach the beginning of this day, I’m aware of the presence and power of God, ready for whatever comes my way, choosing to make it a great day, grateful for it all.

Me and Miss Ellie

Thank You God for the gifts of the day.  Thank You for a moment with Miss Ellie.

Make it a great day!

It matters–Kerrie
