“The chiefest values in life and character are not blown across our way by vagrant winds.”
Mrs. Chas. E. Cowman
In reading my Streams in the Desert devotion this morning, this one sentence really grabbed my attention. How often I find myself going through my day on auto-pilot, - giving little attention to my actions and reactions - just letting the “vagrant winds” of the day blow me around.
This is not how I will learn to grow. Not at all! Living intentionally is the only way to build up my Christ centered values and character. And to do this, I need to make it a point to stay in the presence of God every minute of every day. I need to let Him become my break against all vagrant winds.
I believe I will pour another cup of coffee and then make sure God is my buffer for the day ahead.
