January 13 – Every Breath You Take

Don’t brashly announce what you’re going to do tomorrow; you don’t know the first thing about tomorrow. Proverbs 27:1 MSG

At the close of the year, I start making plans for the upcoming one. I do my little recaps and jot down what I am going to do differently this New Year. And most of the time, I get up on the first or second day and all that I planned is in full swing in my heart.

But rarely does it ever play out in reality like I thought.

Plans are good and goals are essential and wise. But when you don’t own the car, where you plan to go in it is susceptible to change. It’s humbling to admit, but nonetheless, we don’t own the breath we breathe or the bodies in which we take that next breath. God does.

And even if we choose not to accept it, our bodies are going to partake of their fair share of oxygen whether we believe in breathing or not.

Therefore, today, I stop and acknowledge my Creator and rightful owner of my soul. And in love and appreciation, humbly submit my ideas for the day and gratefully accept what He already had in store.
