Staying Mentally Prepared

As I study and pray this morning, my heart is filled with humility and gratitude as I count my blessings!  This feeling helps prepare me for the day, which I know is filled with blessings.

Recently,  I read in an article when the alarm sounds off in a fire station, the crew doesn’t start putting gas and oil in the truck, loading equipment and giving it a tune-up, but they are ready to go in an instant. This is a wake-up call for me to keep my thinking well-oiled and full of Love .

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:6-7  When I do this, I stay free and out of mental bondage.
