The alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. and as I open my eyes blessed to have another day on this earth I immediately smile armed with the knowledge that without Him I wouldn’t be alive. I rub the remnants of sleep out of and raise my eyes to praise him for I understand I may not always be worthy but know that I am his child and He still loves me. Today like all days Satan will lurk in the shadows attempting to cast doubt on my faith through pain and angst. This I do not worry about because I understand that the Lord is the greater force. So I simply turn my troubles over to Him confident He will work them out. Because I know it is true that to be without is not His will and there is a cattle on a thousand hill and they are all mine to claim in his holy name. So I praise Him for what he has given me and for what he will give me as I open my soul to the blessing He will rain down on me.
