Preparing For Today ... And Tomorrow

The past few days, I've been feeling a familiar tug of wanderlust.  We've been in Billings for almost 5 years and really do not have a desire to move again. We like our house, our church, our community. Maggie likes her school.  I like my job (most of the time!)  But with Rocky's dissertation done and graduation around the corner, I've started wondering ... [and yes I'm going to leave it at that]

So, today, I ran across a "letter from Jesus" I received during my walk and am making this my prayer today.

Let me prepare you for the day that stretches out before you.  I know exactly what this day will contain, you have only vague ideas about it.  You would like to see a map, showing all the twists and turns of your journey.  You'd feel more prepared if you could somehow visualize what is on the road ahead.  However, there is a better way to be prepared for whatever you will encounter today: Spend quality time with Me.

I will not show you what is on the road ahead, but I will thoroughly equip you for the journey.  My living presence is your Companion each step of the way.  Stay in continual communication with Me, whispering My name whenever you need to redirect your thoughts.  Thus, you can walk through this day with your focus on Me.  My abiding presence is the best road map available. 

Love, Jesus
