"How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light." (Psalm 36:7-9 NIV)
It only takes me about a minute once I'm up and around on any given day to start thinking about what I "have to" do that day.
I should think about what I "get" to do, not have to do. But "have to" is my default setting, which is why I've started trying to deliberately reframe my "have to's" in terms of what I have.
This prayer helps, for starters: "God, remind me to be intentionally thankful that the things I *have to* do today are because of things I *have,* from 'the abundance of your house.' "
I *have to* make dinner for my husband and daughter…because I *have* a family.
I *have to* go out and walk…because I *have* my health to preserve and protect.
I *have to* clean my house…because I *have* a home.
I *have to* do laundry...because I *have* clothes to wear.
I *have to* do my job...because I *have* meaningful work.
I *have to* do my Bible study homework...because I *have* access to God's Word.
I *have to* pay bills...because I *have* money to cover expenses.
I *have to* fulfill my ministry commitments...because I *have* a church that gives me opportunities to serve.
And I *have to* do these things today…because I *have* today.
