Throwback Thursday… 2020 feels like a continual recalculating. I was reminded of this post and needed the reminder in it. God is ordering our days. He has not lost the narrative. I may have bubbles and stickers in my bag, but God will provide what is needed for whatever the day holds. His mercies are new for that day. He is not caught off guard or surprised. So slowly I learn to hold His hand and allow Him to lead down paths of unknown, and find that He is enough for those moments. He is faithful.
So each morning I read (and pray) the same prayer from Phyllis Tickle’s Divine Hours:
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought me in safety to this new day: Preserve me with your mighty power, that I may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all I do direct me to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen (Book of Common Prayer)
I try to ask God to order my day. The other day as I was heading into school to sub I was thinking about this. God is very faithful to answer this prayer, but I am amazed at how it is still a struggle to enter into the way He may order the day. The last few weeks I have been heading in one direction and then people or situations arise that change the day altogether.
