It’s a Carpenters sort of morning here in the southeast, but we can’t let that stop us from having a great attitude.  Consider these words as you approach the day.

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive-to breathe, to think, to enjoy to love” Marcus Aurelius

and while you are thinking about that, lets remember where our life comes from.  And maybe a trip to the valley of the dry bones will take us away from this rain and yuck and remind us why we are so privileged this morning to be alive.

This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:5

and I just love this a few verses later

 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live 37:14

How privileged are we to walk around today living with the Spirit of the creator in us.

To steal a simple prayer from Chris Tomlin’s new song Awake My Soul

Breathe on me, breath of God, breathe on me, I come alive, I’m alive when You breathe on me

A New Heart

I woke up this morning to my favorite Friday song – Sammy Kershaw’s Finally Friday.

It’s good to be right on top of a few days of away from the grind of work, but there’s still one more day at the ol’ mill before we can “let the good times roll”.

But what’s so great about having a day between us and the weekend is we have another day to choose to serve God.  You have another day to so the renewing gifts of the God you serve.

For example check out Ezekiel where he is telling the people of Israel that when they return to him he will restore their hearts.

26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.  Ezekiel 36:26-27 (New International Version)

What’s so cool is you can take part in that same gift.  Use today to take advantage of the promise of God.  Draw near to Him, and enjoy the renewing of you mind and spirit.
