Aug 7

Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for the nice long walk last night, and the new insight into the way I think and how it can be improved! Thank you for bringing my husband and daughter home safely, and thank you for the peace in the house. Please encourage us all in the things we need to do, for our futures in general and for pleasing you in particular. Please help me in my work today, Lord. I THINK I know what I need to do today, but please show me otherwise, if you have other plans for me.

Isaiah 54:2-10 ERV

Make your tent bigger. Open your doors wide. Don’t think small! Make your tent large and strong,
because you will grow in all directions. Your children will take over many nations and live in the cities that were destroyed.
Don’t be afraid! You will not be disappointed. People will not say bad things against you. You will not be embarrassed. When you were young, you felt shame. But you will forget that shame now. You will not remember the shame you felt when you lost your husband.
Your real husband is the one who made you. His name is the LORD All-Powerful. The Holy One of Israel is your Protector, and he is the God of all the earth!
“Like a woman whose husband has left her, you were very sad. You were like a young wife left all alone. But the LORD has called you back to him.” This is what your God says.
“For a short time I turned away from you, but with all my love I will welcome you again.
I was so angry that for a while I did not want to see you. But now I want to comfort you with kindness forever.” The LORD your Savior said this.
“Remember, in Noah’s time I punished the world with the flood. But I made a promise to Noah that I would never again destroy the world with water. In the same way, I promise that I will never again be angry with you and say bad things to you.
“The mountains may disappear, and the hills may become dust, but my faithful love will never leave you. I will make peace with you, and it will never end.” The LORD who loves you said this.

This is one of my favorite passages in all of scripture. I LOVE knowing that I have an eternal Husband who cares for me so dearly, whose love and care will never end. What more can I need? If I am hungry, He will either feed me or help me endure the hunger. If I feel lost, He will let the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and Teacher, do His work. It is only when I am angry and/or seek my own will that I am in trouble. As long as I Love Him, keep my eyes on Him, I am safe, protected, loved, cherished, fulfilled. Thank you, Lord! 😀
