Today I am thankful for God's Word. It offers me instruction, joy, hope, healing, compassion, blessings, deliverance, forgiveness, grace and a fresh start for each new day. I like this scripture from Psalm 19:12-14 (Message)
"Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!
Keep me from stupid sins,
from thinking I can take over your work;
then I can start this day sun-washed,
scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.
These are the words in my mouth;
These are what I chew on and pray.
Accept them when I place them on the morning altar,
O God, my Altar-Rock, God, my Priest-of-my-Altar."
