"Be" in "Doing"

Lord, please help me to just "be" today. Let not my working hands, moving feet, and busy mind consume me and squelch your very presence in my daily walk. I need to "be" more and find you in all I "do"! Open my eyes and teach me how to "be" even when I am "doing". I'm not sure I have given myself over to you in such a way or if I even know how to reach this lofty thought. I do know all things are possible in show me your ways so that my hands might be yours working through me igniting your flame in another ones life. To you oh Lord I deeply desire to bring glory and honor.

My choice

It’s blazing hot here in Eastern Pennsylvania. Yesterday, the temperature read 100 degrees on the thermometer and today will be much the same but more humid. I hope a thundershower will arrive this afternoon. The much needed rain would awake the wilted flowers and the crisp grass which now appears rather brown than green.
I must admit, I too have felt like a wilted flower as of late. Life circumstances sometimes seem to blur my vision so the view of my true self is not so clear. I begin to “dry up” and don’t realize how much I need to be thankful. I dwell more on everything that is wrong rather than rejoicing in the good set before me. Have you ever had a dry spell such as this?
I brewed my coffee, filled my cup, and sat on the front porch. I determined…
“This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” ~Psalm 118:24
He gives us every day, every hour, every moment. It is our choice how we live it.
