Seek My face

Well today is another great devotion from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young:

SEEK MY FACE at the beginning of your day.  This practice enables you to "put Me on" and "wear Me" throughout the day.  Most people put on clothes soon after arising from bed.  Similarly, the sooner you "put Me on: by communicating with Me, the better prepared you are for whatever comes your way.

To "wear Me" is essentially to have My mind: to think My thoughts. Ask the Holy Spirit to control your thinking: be transformed by this renewal within you.  Thus you are well equipped to face whatever people and situations I bring your way.  Clothing your mind in Me is your best preparation for each day.  This discipline brings Joy and Peace to you and those around you.

My heart has heard you say, "Come and talk with me." And my heart responds, "Lord, I am coming."
Psalm 27:8

Instead clothe yourself with presence or the Lord Jesus Christ. And don't let yourself think of ways to indulge your evil desires.
Romans 13:14

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourself with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Colossians 3:12

This is a reminder of how we get in the grind of our routine doing the 'normal' things like taking a shower, brushing teeth, and getting dressed...sometimes we think, "Oh, I'll just talk to you after I get ready..." Then we find our self on with our day and sometimes don't even communicate. I need to continually work on this and building my relationship so I can relish the Joy and Peace he promises us through this discipline. Have a blessed day.
