Thought for the Day: In Sunday’s sermon we heard the words from Romans 12, including Paul speaking of discerning the will of God. Later on Sunday, our Vice Chair of the Board, Pat Cooksey, offered a prayer during our Board Meeting where she spoke of following God’s will instead of our own will. It was interesting, for though we pray every Sunday in the Lord’s Prayer, “…Thy will be done…,” Pat’s words struck me with the power of what was being suggested. Though the language of ‘God’s will’ is spoken often, and people frequently ask for God’s plan for their lives, I do not think very many of us are ready for God’s will to really be done. Especially if that will is what we find in the Sermon on the Mount, found in Jesus’ words on reconciliation and forgiveness, or shown in God’s redemptive power for the despised and despicable in the world. Yet even those praying the ancient Psalms were asking to not only know the ways of God, but for God to teach them and lead them down the path of divine will. Are you ready?
Prayer: With a deep breath, O Lord, I am ready to take another step onto the path of your will. I can’t say for sure whether I’m ready for everything this means, but I trust for you to walk with me each step of the way. Amen.
