“But now thus says the Lord, he who created you … “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬
Good morning, PreciousOnes,
How are you starting your day? I used to wake up, especially on Monday mornings, full of anxiety and immediately begin mentally making my to-do list, afraid … well, actually, scared to death of forgetting something. Over the years with our Creator, I’ve asked Him to settle my mind down. Very often, before I fall asleep I ask Him to wake me with His thoughts instead of my own. And, since, He thrills at giving His children their desires, He mostly wakes me with an old southern baptist hymn running through my head. The benefit of His perspective instead of my own is that I walk into the day under His programming full of opportunity, instead of my own, which was full of groans and fear and wanting to pull the covers over my head in exhaustion. 

Rising in His thoughts – allowing His blessing to surround your day’s assignments – allow His perspective to pass into your list. He gives you new eyes. 

He shows us, in the process, that the 

daily work, 

the committee work, 

the family work, 

the relationship work, 

the love work, 

the whatever work – there is no need to make a drudgery out of it. He is working it out for His highest good/your highest good and greatest joy. 

He lightens the process. 

His light is the process. 

Trust Him. 
Wake up. 

Place your day in God-perspective. 

Go. 
This was how He delivered my FIRST early thought this morn; and now it will be stuck running over and over in my mind’s background all day:

‘Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it!

Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;

Redeemed through His infinite mercy,

His child and forever I am. Redeemed, redeemed,

Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;

Redeemed, redeemed,

His child and forever I am.

Redeemed, and so happy in Jesus,

His child and forever I am.’
