Resting in Praise

I had a crazy day today.  I think during a twelve hour span, I was only home for about 2 hours.  And that was in small increments. 

But it was a good day.  Well, not if you consider "a good day" one in which you get things done.  I didn't get a lot of things done.  Well, not things I'd planned on getting done.  I transported my kids a few places, and ran a few errands.  Including a couple that had needed to be done for several weeks now.  So I guess that's something.

On a day like this, I feel like my thoughts don't have much time to settle.  Really, I feel like I don't have much time to think.  My mind is on what I'm doing, with a little bit of my brain given to where I'm going next. 

My praying is different on a day like today, too.  I think it's less selfish, in a way.  My brain doesn't have time to think about what I need or what I want or what I wish. 

Which really, is how it should be all the time, but our minds come back to thinking about ourselves frequently, don't they?  Doesn't yours?  I hope it's not just me....

Anyhow, a day like this, is a day to focus on Him.  It's a day for appreciating Him.  It's a day for praise.  So here we go:


You are Master
"Therefore if anyone cleanses himself, 
he will be a vessel for honor, 
sanctified and useful for the Master,
prepared for every good work."
2 Timothy 2:21

You are All Sufficient
"Not that we are sufficient of ourselves
to think of anything as being from ourselves,
but our sufficiency is from God."
2 Corinthians 3:5

You are my Dwelling Place
"Lord, you have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations."
Psalm 90:1

Your are the King of the Jews
"Pilate asked Jesus, 
'Are You the King of the Jews?'
'It is as you say,' 
Jesus replied."
Luke 23:3

You are the Overthrower of Enemies
"Be strong in battle!
God has the power to help and to overthrow."
2 Chronicles 25:8


Not having to think means I can just rest in my knowledge of Him.
