how to start your week {a promise & a prayer}

{Art Source: @incourage}

Jesus, teach me to number my days this week, so that I might gain a heart of wisdom; not because You want me to get more done but because You want me to slow down and remember what You’ve already done:

*You’ve defined my worth outside of my work. (Titus 3:4-5)
*You’ve pre-determined my purpose and woven me into Your plans. (Jer. 29:11-13)
*You’ve decided my destiny regardless of my history. (Isaiah 61:1-3)

Today I pause to remember these promises.

And in Your powerful Name I rest and pray, amen.
