Day 10: Value

value: relative worth, utility, or importance

: to consider or rate highly

 PRAY: God, I come to you today in humble gratitude that you value me. I pray, Lord, that you would reveal to me the things that you value in this election, and that you would lead me to cast my ballot in accordance with your heart. I pray that you would show me how to value my neighbors—in the same way you value them—through my votes. Use my votes, Lord, to demonstrate care for those you value.

Matthew 6:26-27

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?”

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
