day 2759: Rehearsing

“Give us today the food we need…”

I was in a meeting with a theater maker and she said, “How you rehearse it is how it will be.” That is so true, on so many levels.  What we prepare we can expect but what we don’t, or don’t prepare well, then we can’t expect anything but what is reflected by the amount of time and energy we have expended in rehearsal.  We all have something that we are always rehearsing.  It might be as simple as the next phone call or email that we are bouncing around in our head or drafting on our phone.  The key is this; rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!

When we go back to God daily in our prayer time and our reading time, we are rehearsing and getting ready for what might face us throughout the day.  We don’t walk into our day unprepared in our work plans, then why would be walk into the day unprepared for how we will live out our faith?  It might be that today God wants to give us some new lines from his Word that will carry us throughout the close of this week. Now would be the time to start that rehearsal.
