Prepare the Day.


Recently I have been asked, “Why don’t you prepare a week’s worth of your daily ‘Layla’s Light’ in advance, and take advantage of the programs that automatically generate the message at a designated time daily?”. I am in awe at this question. To me, that is like saying, “Why don’t you stop praying, surrendering and listening to God every day?”. There are times in our lives that we must clearly recognize that the conveniences that the world has created…have become an interference in our Spiritual life. I cannot imagine eliminating the nurturing, fulfilling, prayer time with God…just so I could free up an hour of my day. For years I have diligently listened to what God tells me to write. There are days when it is hard, and I find myself frustrated because I cannot ‘hear’ what He wants me to say in the time frame my human mind wants to spend. Those are usually the days when God wants me to stop focusing on the concerns for the day, and press deeper into my relationship with Him. The same goes for all of us. If we will slow down for a moment…and focus on God…He will prepare the day for us. He will give you more time than you can ever imagine, because you gave Him the time to pray and surrender. Never forget that the most fulfilling life is one that is tuned into God on a daily basis. Seek God daily. In doing so…He promises to be there for you…guiding you and loving you forever.

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. PSALM 37:3-6

I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. EPHESIANS 3:16-19

God is with us.
