I have four “babies.” I blinked and they became four toddlers. I blinked again, and they are now four teenagers. Wow, it’s been a wonderful whirlwind. I must admit, however, sometimes I feel like I am going to be blown away (or wish I could be!) as I attempt to oversee the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each of these “sweet ones.”
With this in mind, I penned another devotional prayer that begins with the phrase, “God, You are…”. I must remember Who really is in charge of their days, as well as mine. Please read this prayer and claim it as your own. Also, if time permits, look up the Scripture that I derived it from, and be blessed by God’s promises.
God, You are the Overseer. For You are a great God, and a great King above all gods; in Your hands are the depths of the earth; the peaks of the mountains are Yours also. The sea is Yours; for it is You who made it; and Your hands formed dry land. Yes, You own and oversee it all–every star that shines, every raindrop that falls, and every flower that opens. You hunt the prey for the lion… You prepare the raven its nourishment… and observe the calving of the deer… You cause the grass to grow for the cattle, and the vegetation for the labor of man. Indeed, You are the Creator, Provider, and Sustainer of all Your creatures both great and small. I thank You, O God, that this truth includes me! I know You have numbered my days on this earth, and each one has been pre-planned by You. I thank You for consistently meeting me morning by morning in order to fill me with confidence; I do not have to worry about the day, for You have already laid it out. Yes, I praise You, Overseer of the Universe, for watching over every step I take.
