I would like to thank a loyal blog reader for notifying me that yesterday's post did not go live at 8:08 AM, Pacific time. I follow a stringent writing routine and always have my blog completed in time for release. There was a technical glitch and the story ended up being saved as a draft rather than posting automatically. I apologize for not catching the error sooner and I thank the blog reader for holding me accountable. I was angry at myself for the mistake and then I read another email with the quote you see at the top of today's story. The timing made me laugh. God caught me at a moment when I was ranting to myself about my story not being published on schedule. I was also ranting about some other things going on in my personal life. I lost my focus about praying. I wanted to share this with my wife, however, when I turned to her she was praying! I wasn't thankful in all circumstances. Today's quote helped me to get beyond the rants.
I'm making a commitment today to do these five things:
- Always be joyful.
- Never stop praying.
- Be thankful in all circumstances.
- Stay connected to Jesus.
- Get beyond the rants and live my life without making excuses, blaming others or deviating from God's plan for my life.
Thanks for stopping by.
