During October we will break from the weekly format of our Planning with Purpose Series somewhat on Sunday to allow for a worshipful, meditative or devotional writing.
You can also use the opportunity to catch up on the posts you may have missed for the week.
I have been praying with Moms in Prayer since 2008 and one of the favorite Names of God I’ve discovered through this weekly prayer ministry is God as The Master Planner. As one who adores her planner, and all things which enthrone planning it is no wonder I like the reminder and affirmation of my Father’s ultimate authority which is magnified in this attribute/title. .
Today I have a wonderful gift to share that came to me during my Quiet Time with God yesterday.
Initially I titled it “Being with God” as I was doing just that, but then I decided I wanted it to be an ode to the Name which keeps this planner chick in check!
It is both a poem of affirmation, and a snapshot of my morning as I sat cross-legged in my comfy green chair, while the family still slept, Bible and journal in lap.
May your Sunday be blessed as you seek your Master Planner today.
Ode To The Master Planner
Being with God is not complicated,
is it hard to be with a friend?
To sit and bask in the presence
of one who loves you to the end?
Being with God is not hard
You just cross your legs and sit
Maybe staring out of the window
if only for a bit.
Being with God isn’t easy
If you’re not careful,
many distractions you’ll battle
to keep Him first in your mind.
But if in first place you keep Him,
ever faithful He’ll
continue to be
Leading you daily in all your ways,
guiding you graciously.
For He is The Master Planner
He is The Glorious One
who longs to give you good things
with each rising of the sun-
So give Him the praise due Him
Sit at His feet today
Join in with all creation
to worship Him in every way-
Let all of your being
abide in Him,
Rest in the work He has done
Give Him thanks
all through the day…
and you will truly find
peace, joy and contentment
filling your heart and mind-
What a gift to walk with the One who
created all things-
Including this thing we call time.
