It is not that often that I wake up before 6am on Saturday morning. The first few hours of Saturday morning are usually my sanctuary. Today, there is just a whole lot on my mind.
On the spiritual side, I am thinking about my friend SZ who has that tint in her eye, that hue on her heart, that life is burdening her right now. I’m thinking about CK and K and their good fight against depression. I am telling God about the very big number of prayer requests that have bubbled up from my dear sisters this week. I am also thinking about my friend MB and how she reminded me last night how much we need each other. In the midst of prayers, battles and claiming of victory, she wisely says . . . Why don’t we all just hang out at the pool and have some fun this weekend? (That happens in South Florida in October.)
The only thing you and I need today is Jesus. He is really the only thing that we need everyday. But, it is refreshing to breathe that in. Refreshing to know that wherever your mind is, He is all you need. He is all you need to think, meditate and pray through whatever is on your mind today.
Drink your coffee or tea, clear your mind and do exactly what God calls you to do this weekend. That’s my plan. What is on your mind at 6am on Saturday?
