Today, I’m thankful for the little things. I’m thankful for decaf coffee. I’m sitting in a coffee shop, doing my work, writing this post. I’m thankful for decaf coffee. A long time ago I learned how too much caffeine, like the amount I was drinking can lead to agitation that seeks a way of escape often leading to addictive behaviors and sin. But I love coffee now. I am so glad I can drink decaf, even if everyone else makes fun of me. I know it is a small thing. But I’m thankful for these small blessings as well as the big ones.
My goal today is to not act out. No matter what. I have no good reason to act out. Even if my butt falls off, I don’t need to act out.
Almighty God, You are my strength and my refuge. You are my goal and my longing. Fill me with Your strength and Your Spirit that I may be empowered in my inner being to overcome sin. I am all Yours today; do with me as You will.
