Trying to Keep the Right Mindset

Heavenly Father I praise You and seek you daily. I praise You for being my creator and for helping me to take command of my mornings. I praise You for Your word that leads and guides me and teaches me wisdom which is important in following and serving You. Help me today to get out of the huddle (Sunday Church) and actually take the offense and move forward.  

I will daily attempt to do as Jesus said: “Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. I will also attempt to live the wisdom of Solomon when he wrote: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Help me as I learn to love with all my heart when I desire with all my soul, and I truly focus with all my mind. Teach me and assist me as I learn to fully trust, not try to do things on my own without You involved with my decisions, help me to seek wisdom from Your Holy Spirit, Your word, and from others who are wise in You so that I can walk as straight a path as possible for me in my life. [Matthew 22:37(CSB); Proverbs 3:5&6] 

Praise be to You, God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed me in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose me in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love, he predestined me to be adopted as his son through Jesus, in accordance with His pleasure and will—to the praise of His glorious grace, which he has freely given me in the One he loves. In Him I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on me with all wisdom and understanding. And He made known to me the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ. In Him I was also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will, so that I, who has the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of His glory. And I also was included in Christ when I heard the word of truth, the gospel of my salvation. Having believed, I am marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing my inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. Amen. Ephesians 1:3-14
