He is our days

A few mornings ago I woke up with the need to worship and pray but it was 6:20 am I had too much to do. Noon had rolled around and the need persisted. I told myself it was no use. As soon as I slipped away a small human would call my name and my time would be up. Sigh, I grabbed my grandma’s rosary, knelt by the side of my bed, and turned on my new favorite worship song. Sure enough, a few minutes later tiny foot steps get closer and closer and I hear my little Millie say, “whatcha doin momma?”

Everything in me wanted to say, Mommy needs a minute. Go and I’ll tell you when I’m done. Instead though, I felt the Holy Spirit urge me to teach her. So, I said, I’m worshiping God. You wanna worship him with me?” Her little eyes lit up and she said, “Sure.” I turned the song back on and explained to her that I like to listen to music a little before I pray. I told her that I hold grandmama’s rosary, that was very interesting to her. Then I explained that I just ask Jesus to come close to me, that His will would be done in my life and that He would be in my whole day. This whole time she was just sitting quite, just listening with her eyes closed and all of a sudden she says, “Yeah mommy because HE IS OUR DAYS.” Instantly my heart fluttered. The Holy Spirit spoke to her in that moment and it was what I NEEDED to hear. All day I was putting off time with Jesus. What are our days without Him? What use is doing all things but ignoring the MOST IMPORTANT thing, Jesus.

How silly of me to think I was going to be doing the teaching.

Dear Sister,

Jesus is everything to everyone. The sun does not rise and the moon does not glow without Jesus. We are not enough and we can not do enough without Jesus. He is our beginning. He is our end. HE IS OUR DAYS!
