Good morning, Lord!
Thank you for getting me up and going so bright and early today, and thank you for an awesome, much-needed night of sleep! Thank you for the positive start to this day — looks like it will be a good one! Thank you for giving me several projects to work on today, with variety and flexibility and creativity. Thank you for the cool, overcast weather that makes it easy to work and to focus on the tasks at hand. Please help me to be balanced today, Lord, willing to serve you and give my time and Love to others as they need it. Amen.

 
Psalm 84 ERV

To the director: On the gittith. A song of praise from the Korah family. LORD All-Powerful, the place where you live is so beautiful! 
LORD, I cannot wait to enter your Temple. I am so excited! Every part of me cries out to be with the Living God. 
LORD All-Powerful, my King, my God, even the birds have found a home in your Temple. They make their nests near your altar, and there they have their babies. 
Great blessings belong to those who live at your Temple! They continue to praise you. Selah 
Great blessings belong to those who depend on you for strength! Their heart’s desire is to make the trip to your Temple. 
They travel through Baca Valley, which God has made into a place of springs. Autumn rains form pools of water there. 
The people travel from town to town on their way to Zion, where they will meet with God. 
LORD God All-Powerful, listen to my prayer. God of Jacob, listen to me. Selah 
God, watch over the king, our protector. Be kind to him, the one you have chosen. 
One day in your Temple is better than a thousand days anywhere else. Serving as a guard at the gate of my God’s house is better than living in the homes of the wicked. 
The LORD God is our protector and glorious king. He blesses us with kindness and honor. The LORD freely gives every good thing to those who do what is right. 
LORD All-Powerful, great blessings belong to those who trust in you!

 
Father, I thank you for the opportunities to serve others that I have already had today. Please help me to let go of any animosity or regret or feelings of neglect or unfairness, and just embrace your will and your ways. Help me to give your Love freely, and trust you to fill me back up, replacing every last bit that I give away. Help me to not waste my energy foolishly, by entertaining negative thoughts and feelings or engaging in other draining behavior. Help me to be humble and carefree and have the faith and lightness of a little child today. Help me to work for YOU, instead of for myself. Amen. 🙂
