To say each morning, “I must have things weariful, painful, to bear to-day, and they shall be offered up before hand as my heart’s sacrifice; they shall be not fought against, but received calmly as welcome, for His sake who suffers them  to come,”  gives a dignity, a purpose, nay, a very joy to what otherwise is all cheerless annoyance.   H.L. Sidney Lear

Yes, we know that our days don’t always go the way we plan. I can see it would help my attitude toward whatever happens if early in the day I commit the day to God asking for his help and grace for whatever may happen.

In simply words from a friend’s refrigerator:

Begin each day as if it were on purpose.  Mary Anne Radmacher

1 Kings 12:24 – Thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel : return every man to his house; for this thing is from me. They hearkened therefore to the word of the LORD, and returned to depart, according to the word of the LORD.
