Day 21: Regard

regardRegard

: care or concern for someone or something

: a feeling of respect and admiration for someone or something

PRAY: Father, we thank you for the regard you have shown to us, your people in America. Remind us, as we participate in this election, that we have been chosen and sanctified for the sake of your name. Teach us, Lord, how to treat our neighbors with the same regard you have shown to us, and give us the wisdom to see how we ought to vote as people “set apart for holy use.”

2 Chronicles 7:15-16

“Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer offered in this place. For I have chosen and sanctified (set apart for holy use) this house, that My Name may be here forever, and My eyes and My heart will be here perpetually.”

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?
