If You Need Rescuing


My breath fogs up the mirror. I swipe another coat of mascara on my lashes.

“Thank you that my skin isn’t broken out today.”

I step back to examine my attempt at dreamy eyes.

“Thank you that my hair doesn’t look strange, even with all the humidity.”

“Thank you for my dear friends. This heart of mine is full with their love for me. Thank you for sending them my way. I need each of them and you knew that.”

He heard my year old prayers to send me real friends.

I check my phone for the time.

“Thank you for sound sleep last night with no bad dreams. And the opportunity to serve you today.”

“Oh and that new opportunity that you’ve brought out of the blue, that was amazing. I’m blown away by your provision. Thank you, Lord.”

My morning routine has changed. Not with a new loofah or hairbrush, but how I dress my mind. Instead of waking up asking for things, nervous about the day, trying to control my circumstances with rapid gunfire prayers towards heaven, I turn my heart toward grateful.

I acknowledge the small that can break my day or make my attitude.

I like a good ‘if, then’ statement and this one’s a keeper. “Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High. Then, call on Me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give Me glory.” – Psalm 50: 14 & 15

My goal is simple. To give God glory. But sometimes I make it more complicated that it needs to be. I love when He reveals to me how to do the desire of my heart. The one He planted there long ago.

Not blood or sweat or try-hard sacrifice, but thankfulness. That’s all Jesus wants from me.

That can be hard to swallow. Take a moment a try to believe that. Do you really? Or does the good person list creep in. “Surely, that’s not all the God of the Universe needs. He’ll need more.” Well, He doesn’t.

A thankful heart for the big, and most definitely the very small, is rescuing me from the ordinary life. And could rescue me from trouble in the future.

Let’s give Him glory. Will you share your sacrifice of thankfulness to God? {I’d love to read one thing from you today.}

Blessings to you, God is the head of all time. As much as we draw nigh unto him for revelation, time belongs to him. He is called the Ancient of Days in the book of Daniel and in Revelation an Angel p
