“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!  How great is the sum of them!  If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You.”  (Psalm 139:17-78)

Upon what do you meditate?  Many in the world think upon the things that excite them or lead them in the ways of the world.  Do not be led by this world’s ways, but by the goodness of the Lord.  Come then and live into the promises and hope that He gives to those who turn to Him.  Live into the life the Lord offers and rejoice in the goodness of His grace and mercy, for His love alone endures forever.

Lord, I am distracted by so many things.  Lead me in the way of life that I would always go according to Your will and not the will of this world.  Help me to be thankful for what You have shown me.  May I learn to meditate upon Your goodness and the reality of Your presence through all that You have created.  Guide me into the deeper life of one who lives by fath.

Holy Spirit, lead my heart to see through what this world offers in order to see the goodness and mercy that is all around me.  Guide me according to Your eternal will to live into the promises You have given me.  Help me walk in the way of Jesus and to not be led astray by the ideas of this world.  Keep me now and always abiding in You and You in me that I may walk the way of faithfulness.  Amen.
