Here’s a good song to start your day:  “Good morning, God.  This is your day.  I am your child.  Show me your way.”  I have a link below that gives you the tune that goes with the words. It has a cute little boy singing it.  This is a children’s song.   I’m going to be teaching it to our Kids Stuff preschoolers as they start up again in September. But this is also a song for all ages.  I would recommend you file it away in your brain (you might have to delete an advertising jingle or two to make room) and call it to mind frequently.

Why do I mention this song?  There are some horrible things happening in the world today.  Sometimes it’s not a bad idea to just turn off the news, but that does not turn off the suffering around our globe.

I heard a story a few years ago that I cannot forget.  Beirut, Lebanon had been bombed.  There was rubble everywhere.  Many lives had been lost.  Much like Gaza today.  And there was a little girl, perhaps the age of the boy on the video.  She was walking through her devastated home town.  And she was heard to be singing.  “Good morning, God. This is your day.  I am your child.  Show me your way.”

In Christ,

John
