“What will I do this month?” That was the question I had running through my mind as I was preparing for the month’s newsletter. This opened my thoughts to what have I done. Well, I could brag and boast about what I have been involved in and everything I have done, but then that would be all about me and not about what God has done in and through me. So, I thought about what God has done for me. This led me to thinking about how I must be intentional in my actions, my thoughts and my deeds because, if it was left up to me, it would only be about me.

Being intentional in my prayers, in reading Scripture, in meditation, in hearing God’s voice, in reaching out to the least, the last, and the lost; if left up to me...it would just be about me. Praise be to God, I have the opportunity to make it about more than just me.

Robert Foster, superintendent of the UMC in Britain summed it up like this;
On this day, I could sleep, or snooze, or be wide awake;
On this day, I could run, or walk, or be still;
On this day, I could meet with God.
On this day, I could eat nothing, or little, or far too much;
On this day, I could scowl, or frown, or smile;
On this day, I could meet with God.
On this day, I could whisper, or speak, or shout;
On this day, I could just go fishing;
On this day, I could meet with GOD!
On this day, may I meet with God;
On this day, may I walk with God;
On this day ...

Let the door of our heart be always open to you, O Lord, that we may mark your entrance, embrace your presence, hear your voice, seek your strength and hold fast to you forever.

Amen.
