What You Do

By Gail Rodgers

daily devotions onlineWhat will your hands be busy with today? Do you feel grateful for the tasks at hand? Is there joy in doing what’s on your list today?

Many of us just hurry from one thing to the next. Delays frustrate us and people who aren’t directly related to our tasks can annoy us with their interruptions.

Pause in your thoughts for this one moment. Thank God for the work ahead of you today in spite of what you would rather be doing.

You will be amazed at the change in your outlook as you focus on being thankful.

You are where you are today… that’s a reality. You can make choices to change that reality. The first choice is to choose a grateful attitude. It will widen the road you are on and bring a perspective that will lighten your step.

The prayer of the Psalmist is a good prayer to echo today, “Establish the work of my hands, O Lord, establish the work of my hands.” (Psalm 90:17)

Heavenly Father, Right now I want to offer the work of my hands to You today. Help me to have a grateful attitude as I do what is in front of me today. May I give these tasks to You as my offering. I do them in Your name. Amen.

Inspired by “The Rest of God” Chapter 1 by Mark Buchanan

    My hands are busy witnessing the Lord Jesus, that He died on the Cross and Resurrected on the third day and is living God. Because He appeared to me and spoke from the Cross to heal my paralysis, eighteen years ago. Jesus is Living God! Praise the Lord.
    I join your prayer that He may bless the work in my hands of witnessing Him.
    Thank you for the amazingly inspiring and timely devotional.
    God bless you and keep you.

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could
    greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
