Thursdays should be called stretch days. We get paid every 2 weeks. Payday is Friday so today, Thursday, we are stretching everything until tomorrow. Oatmeal was just enough, dog treats, had to break them in half. Thursday could also be called, “make me aware of everything that is running low” day. Maybe call it it “worry Day”. As a believer in Jesus What it should be or could be called is pray day.
I just read in Philippians 4 that I am not to worry about anything, instead, pray about everything.
“Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Philippians 4:5-8 – NLT
So putting the words I read into practice, Lord Jesus, we just ran out of oatmeal, the dog treats are almost gone and my truck is overdue for an oil change. My schedule and pay scale got changed, you know this, we know it will be less pay, Lord make it enough. Like you fed the 5 thousand with 5 loaves and 2 fish, make whatever we have and whatever we get, enough. Lord you also know about the relationships in our family that are damaged. Thank you Jesus for always supplying what we need, when we need it. You are our healer and restorer.
So here is to pray day. May it become a special time in my life following Jesus.
Father God, if there is a reader with a need today, be the Good God that you are and graciously and abundantly meet their needs too.
Have a happy Prayday. (Aka Thursday).
