All I Know Is: not much—but Enough

Colossians 4:2, NIV: "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful." Watchful and thankful…watchful and thankful…watchful and thankful... . This was the verse of the day that I was pondering. I started praying through it and I was wondering what I supposed to be watchful for. For some reason my mind went back to our Thursday Bible study.

Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.” “but I don’t have time… Maybe I can take it to work and do it at break… It’s just one day… .” This is me arguing with me.
