"What Do You Want Today Lord"

PicMonkey Photo





When He has you in a certain place at a certain time and you are not sure of the reason, the best thing I have found to do is just pray, "What do you want today Lord"....

Sometimes I can't look much further than today.  I want to know the answer and reason for everything right here, right now.  But when I say the simple prayer, "what do you want today Lord," I try and remember to stay in the here and now.

When the rain has not stopped since Easter Sunday..I have to stay in the moment.....

When the play is over and my busy little girl wants to know what is next...I have to stay in the moment...

When we begin to talk about the next move, 1 year from now, I have to stay in the moment....

When I feel the pull to homeschool on my heart but am afraid of the challenges it would bring in this location, I have to stay in the moment...

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid"
John 14:27


  1. yes. easier said then done...not worrying about the future, not trying to control what we can't change, accepting each day for what it is - part of a picture. Lovely post - and rain since Easter?! Sending sunshine your way from Colorado

    1. Your good thoughts worked..Today (April 22) it is blue skies...no rain! Praise God!

  2. "My peace I give you" is a wonderful sentiment.
    I very recently and very suddenly lost my 53 year old husband, The shock and the grieving are so hard, but faith really does pull you through. To love God as much when you are sad as when you are happy pulls you through. My sweet loving husband was a happy man who made my life a joy for 32 years (since high school) and I know he is held happily in Gods arms, I wish he was in mine but God knows best.
    Keep the peace in your heart as much as you can and keeping it on your mind helps to do that. I miss our very busy time of life when my boys were young and we were constantly on the go. When you get stressed remember the day may be long, but the time is really short. xoxo Shelley

    1. Shellie,
      I am so sorry for your awful loss. I am sure you hear that all the time and it probably never seems to help. But there are no words to heal such a hurt I imagine. I am not sure if I could love God through such a time. Even when Pete's dad died I was having a hard time with God. I will keep you in my prayers and continue to work on focusing on the fact that time does go on and you never know what that may bring. Thank you so much for your comment and sharing your heart.

  3. By staying in the moment, we savor the moments we are in more... but boy, oh boy, is it difficult at times. I know the rain must get old and mundane and never ending for you, but it is so gorgeous there. Wish we could trade some of our drought with your rain.
