Aug 26

Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for the nice time of fellowship and fun yesterday, and thank you again for helping me overcome some of my fear and to therefore be able to feel so hopeful and lighthearted this morning. Father, I am a bit discouraged on the lack of response to the Spanish Trading Cards so far, but I know it is something you have given me to do, so I will keep going on it, trusting you to bring the increase. Please help me to keep moving forward on all my projects, looking to you for approval rather than relying on other feedback.

 
1 John 1:5-10 ERV

We heard the true teaching from God. Now we tell it to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness.
So if we say that we share in life with God, but we continue living in darkness, we are liars, who don’t follow the truth.
We should live in the light, where God is. If we live in the light, we have fellowship with each other, and the blood sacrifice of Jesus, God’s Son, washes away every sin and makes us clean.
If we say that we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
But if we confess our sins, God will forgive us. We can trust God to do this. He always does what is right. He will make us clean from all the wrong things we have done.
If we say that we have not sinned, we are saying that God is a liar and that we don’t accept his true teaching.

 
Father, I want to always dwell with you. I do not want any of my petty human obsessions to get in between us or cause me to be at any distance from you at any time. I want to be as close to you as I possibly can. Please cleanse me and make me more and more YOURS every day, coming into a greater fellowship with you and with the people who belong to you. Help me to dwell in YOUR light, Lord — even while I still maintain my appreciation for the physical nighttime of your creation, when the little frogs chirp and sing and when the robin makes its cozy chirp-calls to its mate. Thank you for giving me love for all of your awesome natural world, Lord. Help me to learn how to share my love with others! 😀
