That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking . If you have anything against someone, forgive —only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.”
Mark 11:23-25 MSG
My Dad was a stickler for how I shook a person's hand. Eye contact and a firm grip for every man, woman and child. At the table it was, "Sit up straight."
This was to maintain a posture that represented the home training I received. To avoid looking uncouth.
2017 is checking posture left and right.
How are you dealing with disappointment, loss, sorrow while preserving a heart for God in what sometimes feels like a heartless society?
Uphold your posture. In all things and we'll receive His everything.
