Saving First for Last
It’s bedtime and I have been striving since breakfast to make time to sit with God. But my day has been hectic, and my “First” has now become my “Last” as night arrives. Jesus, I ask You to take the shackles of performance and hustle off my wrists and bind me to You alone. I want to be yoked to Your side, learning lessons under Your direction. Without Your guidance, the fields of my life are barren and over harvested. May I sow only when You direct me, water only with Your refreshment, and reap only when You say it’s time. Keep my restless heart yoked to You alone! Amen.
“Blessed the man, blessed the woman, who listens to me, awake and ready for me each morning, alert and responsive as I start my day’s work.” (Proverbs 8:34 MSG)
