Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
It is easy to get carried away with the flow of the river of life without having a moment to check where the currents of a particular day are taking us. Many agendas and issues can pull us into waters that are headed into the treacherous bays of the kingdoms of materialism or fame, success or boredom, vanity or passionate pursuits. But we are designed to head for home, to the love and truth, righteousness and awesome creativity, the light and life of our heavenly Father. Today will I step into the currents of fame and fortune offered by this life, or will I first seek God and his kingdom? Holy Spirit of God, help me today first seek your kingdom.
O Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples. (Psalm 105:1)
Prayer is the root, the fountain, the mother, of a thousand blessings.
St. John Chrysostom
