Fill Your Day with G-O-D - July 10, 2023

My friend and I went on an extended Hill Country bike trek. After forty-five minutes I had to dismount and catch my breath. That’s when my partner spotted the problem: both rear brakes were rubbing my back tire.

Don’t we do the same? Guilt presses on one side. Dread drags the other. We sabotage our day, wiring it for disasters, lugging along yesterday’s troubles, downloading tomorrow’s struggles. We aren’t giving the day a chance. What can we do? Here’s my proposal: consult Jesus. Saturate your day in his grace. Entrust your day to his oversight. Apply his direction. Grace. Oversight. Direction. G-O-D. Fill your day with God, and give the day a chance.
