Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you. Instead of waking up and thinking, “Now, what do I have to do today?” try this: “I wonder what is God doing today?”
Don't dwell on your obligations, what you have to do, what you can't do. Set aside what you have to face, what you have to endure. Ignore your thoughts about what you want, what you wish would happen, what you're afraid might happen. Stop trying to predict or prescribe a day that either you or God ought to match. Never mind all these restrictions.
Instead start by wondering, being open. Focus on God's presence. Be open to what God is already doing, hidden and easily mistaken for nothing at all. Be open to how God might use you in whatever God is doing. You are free. Be ready to be available to God. Be curious how you might show loving kindness today. As you awake prepare to spend your day awakening, becoming more mindful of the grace flowing within and around you.
God enters the day, and chooses to bring you along. I wonder what will unfold?
Open, as the weather reads the forecast for you, and finds much that is not written.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
