You know those moments when you hear the Lord speak to you? Well on Monday I had one of those moments. Wednesday-Friday of last week were a bit rough. My office was full of negativity and it was sucking the life out of me. Half way through Wednesday I decided to make it my goal to be even more joyful and to pray for joy. While joy in itself is great and something the Lord calls us to be, I wanted this joy for selfish reasons.
This Monday morning before work I went through my normal routine. Part of that routine is going over that days agenda, filling in my goal for the day, and praying over the day. On Monday I think I literally stared at my ‘Goal’ section for a solid 2 minutes before I could decide what to write. Then the Lord spoke to me. Worship Me. Those two words hit me like a rock. My goal should not be joy; my goal should be to worship our Father, our Creator, Abba. And I’ll tell you what, this week has already been so much better. When I took the focus off of me and set my eyes on Him it was like a weight was taken off of my shoulders. Our lives are supposed to be all about Him and should be a song of praise! So this is now my goal for the day. Worship Him.
