Order My Thoughts

Dear God,
Please order my thoughts today.  Place in my mind those things that are a priority to You.  Those things that will establish divine order in this life You have given me.  Take away the thoughts, habits, attitudes which create fear and keep me from being in alignment with Your will.  Help me to see things through Your eyes, according to Your law. Take away every thought, want, unconscious and conscious urge that can place me on the treadmill of pain and confusion.  Fill my mind with Your will, Your way, Your desire for me today.  Help me to see all things from a divine perspective today, a perspective of love, peace, and joy.  And then, Lord, guide me to act accordingly.  Thank You, God.
(Iyanla Vanzant, Faith in the Valley, p. 121)

Sunday, June 1, 2008


God has given us the faculties by which we are able to bear what comes to pass without being crushed or depressed thereby.  Why then do we sit and moan and groan, blind to the Giver, making no acknowledgment to Him, but giving ourselves to complaints?
