Psalm 27:11-14 English Standard Version (ESV)11 Teach me your way, O Lord,
and lead me on a level path
because of my enemies.
12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
for false witnesses have risen against me,
and they breathe out violence.
13 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living!
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the Lord!
NOTICE ME ~
God gives us words in the Bible to live by. He does notice you because he created you in the beginning. A bigger purpose than you might realize and he gives us opportunities to make a difference. Why wait on someone else to be kind or say hi, when you can. Ask God to take away shyness or struggle of being the first one to move forward. Maybe you feel that the space that feels invisible to others humans but don't let that become your reality. You can be the first one in line to say something to someone.
Last night at a Superhero Training for kids, I noticed how several children wanted to be first in line. Then I noticed the kids it didn't matter too. They stood quietly in the line, while the few fussed over who was first. Being first is important to many, but just being there is also important to others. Isn't it true, we are taught to raise our hands, be patient, stand still and get in line. I'm glad we grow out of the most of that as we get older. Sometimes it is great to be the first at something and sometimes it's great to just be part of something. I often feel as if I am a part and that space in my heart is filled in by Jesus. I know that He is real, he cares and able to handle anything I face. How about you? Are you trusting him today and letting him be the first in your heart?
Life changes my friends and we left with memories of many things. Those many things are mixed with smiles and tears. New beginnings happen and we must look at life with joy. Another day to serve God, another day to be in your life and another day to give thanks for all I do have. That's my thoughts today and my prayers continue for you, your family and friends. You are not the space between the steps, you are important and the step needed in life. Purpose this a good day!
