Welcome to week two of Daily Reads. I made a change to the posts by linking the scripture readings to the You Version Bible. It’s easy to access when you’re on the go or at home – I hope you enjoy it. Remember to comment on what works well for you as well as what could be improved. Feedback is so helpful! Thanks!!
This week the phrase I want to focus on is JUST SHOW UP. If you were to show up in your life circumstances what would that mean? I am sure it is different for everyone so there is no right or wrong answer – just one that is relevant for you right now.
Pause now and ask yourself “Where do I need to show up?” Hint: the first thing that comes to your mind is probably the “right” thing.
Great! Now that you have that, consider the following scriptures:
In the scriptures above, each person is asked to do something, to SHOW UP in some way. One says yes and doesn’t, one says no and does; one eagerly says choose me, one says he doesn’t think he can do it because he’s too young; one says no way and walks – no, rather, runs – away.
In regard to SHOWING UP, which response best reflects you right now? Where would you like to be? What needs to happen to get there?
Have a blessed Monday! May God open our ears to hear, our eyes to see and our minds to understand what he has for us today!
