It's early Friday morning and I'm sitting on the left end of our couch and my wife is on the right side. We follow a daily ritual where we go through our emails, read some news, go through our individual Facebook pages while drinking freshly-brewed coffee.
Almost 100 percent of the time, I go through the Our Daily Bread devotion for the day where there's a commentary based on a Bible verse or verses.
Today the devotion is based on 1 Corinthians 10:12:
Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
It raises the point about what happens when we turn our back on God in our daily lives. What happens when you take him out of the equation of daily living?
For me it's easy to read a devotion with its verse and then forget it. As I experience today, I pray that God helps me keep him at the center of everything.
Our pastor sometime ago shared a prayer to pray daily:
God, give me the grace to trust you today.
There my day has officially started.
