Summer is here! That means beautiful weather, long days, gorgeous sunsets out on the porch and open windows at night when you fall asleep. For some, summer means care free timelessness. For others, it may mean busy schedules with sports, general activities, vacation or work.
Regardless of your summer plans, you can always focus on giving each day to God. This is a dedication that is quiet simple, but boundless in grace considering its simplicity. When you start your day off by dedicating everything you do that day to God, you will be amazed at the gifts brought into your life.
1 Timothy 4: 4-5 captures this dedication mentality. "For everything God created is good and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer."
You may think your day means nothing. Maybe you are going to work for eight hours while every one else in your home is frolicking in the beautiful weather and you will be stuck inside. Never underestimate God's ability to transform what you give him. You have the ability to touch so many lives during one day at work. By giving your entire day to God, you say "All right, Lord. I'm not sure what you have in store for me, but I'm willing to be you to others, whatever that entails."
Give God your everything.....give, and it will be given back to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (Luke 6:38). Measure out your day to God with generous helpings....He won't disappoint you!
Si vis amari, ama.
