Good Morning, God! What Shall We Do Today?

Good morning, God! What shall we do today? Not “I only have five minutes to talk with you because I am busy. I will see you later.” Not “What would You have me do today?”. Not “Hey God, here is my plan. Please bless it.” But “Good morning, God! What shall we do today?”.

In Wm. Paul Young’s “The Shack”, Mack is confused when God tells him He does not want to be his top priority. God asks Mack what happens when God is at the top. Does that mean Mack goes to Him first, gets that out of the way, and then goes on to the next priority?

God says, “I don’t just want a piece of you and a piece of your life. I want all of you and every part of you and your day.” Jesus adds, “Mack, I don’t want to be first among a list of values; I want to be at the center of everything. Rather than the top of the pyramid, I want to be the center of a mobile, where everything in your life–your friends, family, occupation, thoughts, activities–is connected to me but moves with the wind, in and out and back and forth, in an incredible dance of being.” – The Shack: pg. 208.

Neale Donald Walsch in his book, “Conversations with God”, suggests that God cannot forsake us because He is always with us; because He is in us and we are in Him.

And so this morning’s prayer would be “Good morning, God! What shall we do today?”, because you are not alone and God is not ‘someone’ you just come to each morning or only in time of need. God is with you every step of the way because He wants to be. He is the center of the mobile that connects you with your life.

Take Him up on his offer. Plan your day, spend your day, and enjoy your day with the One who always wants to be with you.
