Monday Morning

It's Monday morning, and for the first time in many months I do not have a doctor's appointment on Monday morning. It feels really strange! What do I do? I feel like God has given me back a tiny piece of my calendar! 

Then I remember Mark's sermon yesterday about practicing the "presence of Christ" in our lives. I decide that if God is going to trust me with a tiny piece of the calendar, then I sure better include Him in my plans!  I spend time with Him, praying, reading His Word, meditating, asking Him to help me be aware of His presence today. 

He speaks His words to me in Zephaniah 3:17:

“The LORD your God wins victory after victory and is always with you. He celebrates and sings because of you, and He will refresh your life with His love."  

What an amazing picture: God celebrates and sings because of me! And because of you! WOW! How can that be? The perfect picture of a love relationship - each one celebrating and singing because of the other!

His praise plays in my heart and head the rest of the day. 

Praise belongs to You 
Let every kingdom bow 
Let every ocean roar 
Let every heart adore You now 

Praise belongs to You 
What can I do but sing 
The greatest joy I've found 
Is to lay a crown before my King 
Before my King 

(Jared Anderson, Glorified)

  2. Laura, I am so happy for you that you are in remission. I hope that you continue posting to your blog (or start a new one for post-cancer life). Your words are an inspiration.
