Good morning, Father!
Thank you so much for the opportunity to make an elaborate breakfast for my husband this morning. It seems like he really needs the extra attention and affection, and he needed to be heard and have something done his way — without having to fight for it. Father, I am so excited and elated because I feel more STABLE than I think I have, in YEARS!!! I am so much more unaffected by my husband’s criticisms and other distractions lately, having a deep, enduring reassurance that YOU are in control, Lord! It feels awesome to have your care and your touch with me throughout the day, and I LOVE the flow I’ve had lately — not feeling compelled to THINK about everything before I do it, but just to follow your lead. I feel awesomely blessed! 😀
Psalm 103:1-6 ERV
A song of David. My soul, praise the LORD! Every part of me, praise his holy name!
My soul, praise the LORD and never forget how kind he is!
He forgives all our sins and heals all our sicknesses.
He saves us from the grave, and he gives us love and compassion.
He gives us plenty of good things. He makes us young again, like an eagle that grows new feathers.
The LORD does what is fair. He brings justice to all who have been hurt by others.
Father, I kinda feel like that eagle growing new feathers. I feel like a new person — the same in some ways, but NEW in parts of my heart and mind. Please continue this growth, my Lord! I desire to be a favored plant in your garden, responding to your touch and your care and bearing fruit for you. Thank you for showing me that it is YOU who makes all these wonderful things happen — and that I am just along for the ride. It is up to ME how much I notice your care, how much I feel your touch. It is up to me to either fight you and do things my way — or to relax into life and just follow you, my Faithful Shepherd.
