And then King Solomon blew it.
1 Kings 11 (MSG) records:
How easy is it to take our eyes off of the One our heart loves!
A warning and reminder in the New Testament is in Ephesians 5 (NIV):
For me, I think having my quiet time reading and praying in the mornings helps me get re-centered. It also helps to listen to praise music that "brings me before the throne room", so to speak, reminding me of the amazing personal relationship I have with the Lover of my Soul, and friends who pray, reach, and touch my life with encouraging words and service all help me to remember who I am and Whose I am.
Lord, help me to remember your love for me in a tangible and present way. Help me to be that Godly friend who prays for others and gives encouraging words and touches. Help me to be the salt and light in this very dark and hopeless world that so many people flounder in. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse my heart. Guide my path. Hug me. Hold me. Fill me. Use me.
