You Are Renewing My Mind

Posted by Steve Nyhof on 2 February 2011

Approach Each Day With Awareness

Posted by Steve Nyhof on 20 January 2011

I am purposely training my mind to approach each day with the awareness of who is in control. As I make plans for this day, I am remembering that it is You who orchestrates the events of my life. I know I can so quickly forget that when my plans go smoothly for the day, that I become unaware of Your sovereign Presence. But on the days when my plans are thwarted, I am on the lookout for You!

I know it is ok with You that my goal is to reach those peaks, but I am learning that shortcuts do nothing to help me grow while on the journey.
