Daily Prayer

Just when I thought
You’d forgotten all about me,
You show up out of the blue.

A message, a flower, a guide.
Something speaks to me
and it says You.

I bet You’ve been there all along,
and since I wasn’t expecting You,
I missed Your appearance.
Open up my senses
so that I may let You in.

Daily Scripture

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; God’s greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts.
Psalm 145:3-4

When describing the Lord there are many adjectives to use. Great and mighty come up often in the translation of scripture, because we can easily understand a great God and a mighty One. Psalm 145:3-4 reveals greatness with the opposite intention. Yes, God is great and we know it, but just how great God is, is not something we can know. Solution for the unfathomable, is acceptance by faith. Each and every generation praises God’s greatness and tells of the good God does. And just as each and every generation offers praise, so should their faith be shared with others.

If you treat a sick child as an adult and a sick adult as a child, it usually works out pretty well. That’s how it goes in the May household. “Buck up!” is the mantra Karen May repeats when one of her kids is sick. No babying her “babies.” But last week when her husband woke up with flu-like symptoms, Karen went into full “mommy” mode.

P.J.’s – check. Bed tray – check. Thermometer, cherry cough drops, cool wet wash cloth. Check, check, and check. Mark May hasn’t taken a sick day since the early nineties. Karen figured he deserved to be the little boy she never knew and heated up the Campbell’s chicken soup with stars.

There’s something about a brief illness that brings out the inner child in an adult. Somewhere between bad cold and serious medical problem, lies a place where you feel lousy and the best medicine is attention from a loved one. Karen indulged Mark for three long days until he felt like himself again.  When the aches, chills and nausea stopped, ‘lil Mark snapped right back into being big Mark again, but with a slight change. Normally he’s not the praying type. Yet, on the morning of his recovery, he said to Karen, “Thank God, I feel good again. I will never take my health for granted from this moment on.

Mark is a tough nut, and if he cracked even a little, it’s progress. It’s been one week and three days. Mark continues to thank God daily for his fully functioning body. Karen never thought she’d see the day when she’d hear her husband praying!

While his wife was nursing Mark’s body, God was nursing his soul: New beginnings for the adult who gained spiritual perspective from being treated like a child. Thanks be to God for the wondrous healing of mind, body, and soul.

Best Religious Music

Mandisa is a popular contemporary Christian artist who sings with a style that’s pleasing to listen to and feels just right. “Waiting for Tomorrow” is a song about good intentions. The lyrics speak of change and being better, “Everyday’s a day to start over.

When Mandisa sings “Grabbing the hand that’s reaching down” it’s impossible not to see the imagery and feel the faith. The best religious music reminds us of the source of strength. “Waiting for Tomorrow” is a blinking neon light – the Lord is with you today, don’t wait for tomorrow.

Waiting For Tomorrow Lyrics – Mandisa

Maybe tomorrow we’ll start over
Maybe tomorrow I will finally change my ways
Said the same things yesterday
Don’t know why I’m so afraid
To let you in
To let you win
To let you have all of me

Can’t spend my whole life wastin’
Everything I know I’ve been given
‘Cause you’ve made for so much more than
Sittin’ on the side lines
I don’t wanna look back and wonder
If good enough could’ve been better

Everyday’s a day to start over
So, why am I waiting for tomorrow

Maybe today I’ll start believing
That you’re mercy is really
As real as you say it is
It doesn’t matter who I used to be
It only matters that I’ve been set free
You rescued me you’re changing me
Jesus take everything

Can’t spend my whole life wastin’
Everything I know I’ve been given
‘Cause you’ve made for so much more than
Sittin’ on the side lines
I don’t wanna look back and wonder
If good enough could’ve been better

Everyday’s a day to start over
So, why am I waiting for tomorrow

Oh, I’m makin this my moment now
To grab the hand that’s reachin down to save me You saved me
And I’m makin this my moment now
To grab the hand that’s reachin down to save me You saved me

Can’t spend my whole life wastin’
Everything I know I’ve been given
‘Cause you’ve made for so much more than
Sittin’ on the side lines
I don’t wanna look back and wonder
If good enough could’ve been better

Everyday’s a day to start over
So, why am I waiting for tomorrow

I’m gonna grab the hand that’s reachin down
And I’m not gonna wait until tomorrow
Oh, tomorrow

Composers: Jeff Pardo and Ben Glover
