Good morning, Lord!
Thank you for getting me up so bright and early today, going for a nice morning walk before the day’s heat begins, and getting an awesome, motivating start to the day! Thank you for giving me things to work on, and courage in my heart to work on art. Thank you for healing me during that first week of loss, and please help me continue to grow stronger and more stable and more FREE! Father, I desire to increase my income enough to be able to afford the things I need like contact lenses, glasses, clothing, and a working car. Above that, I desire to have enough to pay back my debt and to help other people on a regular basis. Please bless me with your abundance, Father, so that I may live free and freely give of all that you share with me. Amen!
John 15:5-8 ERV
“I am the vine, and you are the branches. If you stay joined to me, and I to you, you will produce plenty of fruit. But separated from me you won’t be able to do anything.
If you don’t stay joined to me, you will be like a branch that has been thrown out and has dried up. All the dead branches like that are gathered up, thrown into the fire and burned.
Stay joined together with me, and follow my teachings. If you do this, you can ask for anything you want, and it will be given to you.
Show that you are my followers by producing much fruit. This will bring honor to my Father.
Lord, I desire to bear much fruit for YOU, to give you glory, to be pleasing to you! Show me, guide me, correct me when I need it. I give my time, my heart, my mind, my hands to you, Lord, and ask that you make me fruitful. Let me provide for myself AND for others, Father. Show me the way, and give me the courage to walk it. Help me to find the right balance between computer work and art, between writing and designing, between pushing myself and taking it easy. Thank you, Shepherd! 😀
