Good morning, Father.
Thank you for a good night’s sleep and getting up and working pretty early today. Please help my heart not to fall off the edge of this cliff, Lord. I am doing my best to cling to you and not look back or down or even immediately ahead. I have hope for my more distant future, Lord, but none for the now or the near future, except for when I am alone with you. Otherwise, there is chaos and tension and confusion. I’m just trying to hang in there and remember that YOU are in charge, and you are Faithful. Thank you for being my Rock, Lord!

 
Matthew 7:21-27 ERV

“Not everyone who calls me Lord will enter God’s kingdom. The only people who will enter are those who do what my Father in heaven wants.
On that last Day many will call me Lord. They will say, ‘Lord, Lord, by the power of your name we spoke for God. And by your name we forced out demons and did many miracles.’
Then I will tell those people clearly, ‘Get away from me, you people who do wrong. I never knew you.’
“Whoever hears these teachings of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock.
It rained hard, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house. But it did not fall because it was built on rock.
“Whoever hears these teachings of mine and does not obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
It rained hard, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house. And it fell with a loud crash.”

 
Lord, it is difficult to concentrate with this pain in my heart. I do not wish to be this distracted. I desire instead to be stable in YOU! Please help me to lay my troubles at your feet and to know and obey your voice. Let me be found pleasing to you, Lord. Help me to see that YOU are in charge, so that I do not crumple under the enemy’s arrows. I look forward to resting in you, Lord. I look forward to peace and joy and progress. Help me find each of those things in you today, Father, for I know that you are just as close to me here today, as you will be in days ahead when I do not have so much suffering and struggle. Thank you for being so Faithful, my Lord! 😀
