With Intention

A friend recently shared the words below, saying she has this on her refrigerator door in order to "intentionally see and read" everyday...These are some great thoughts, some great "intentions"! Webster says intention is "determination to do a specific thing or act in a specified manner" while intentional is "done purposely."

I will intentionally think about spiritual truths.

I will intentionally look forward with joy and confident hope to Christ's return.

I will intentionally choose to be self-controlled - mentally, verbally, and physically.

I will intentionally decide not to conform to ways I behaved in the past.

I will intentionally live as a stranger in this culture- gripped by reverent fear.

I will intentionally remember I was redeemed at an unimaginable cost. Someone (God's Beloved Son) died so I could be free of guilt and shame.

I will intentionally love others (not according to my moods or opinion of them), but sincerely, deeply, from the heart.

I will intentionally rid myself of old stuff: malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and slander.

I will intentionally crave what makes me strong - God's Word and work in my life.

I will intentionally seek God's help for this.

Gracious God, May we all strive to be more intentional...with our personal relationships as well as our relationship with you. Amen and amen.
