“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”  Matthew 25:13

“Dress for action like a man;”  Job 38:3

Twice in a day the message of the Scriptures has been -  be ready.  Be ready, and not just the regular run of the mill ready, but ready in the truth, girded up.  The meaning in Job is to gird up your loins.  During Lent I am asking God to show me bad defaults, addictions, habits that hurt.  This scripture has come.  Am I girded in truth?  Are my actions and reactions rooted in Him and ready?  


Father, I confess that many times I am not girded in truth and am an easy target for the enemy.  I confess that I get confused about your yoke and man’s load.  In my wrong understanding I get exhausted and am not ready for you.  My reactions, questions, actions, and words then reflect my mess rather than solid trust and an easy yoke.  So my addiction - man’s approval.  My fear -  being rejected, abandoned, or even my future.  Father come.  Thank you for the cross and the resurrection.  It was and is not cheap.
