Good morning, Father.
Thank you for my excitement and motivation yesterday. Thank you for helping me remember to look at things with new eyes, like everything is new and good and deserves a chance. Thank you for teaching me to withhold judgement on any event or circumstance, just letting things play out as they will, trying to just accept things as they are. This helps me to focus on the things I CAN change — my own behavior and thoughts and attitudes. It also helps me to trust you more, Lord, to wait on you and give you a chance to make all things good, for your glory. Please increase my patience and my faith, Lord. Amen.
2 Thessalonians 2:13-16 ERV
Brothers and sisters, you are people the Lord loves. And we always thank God for you. That’s what we should do, because God chose you to be some of the first people to be saved. You are saved by the Spirit making you holy and by your faith in the truth.
God chose you to have that salvation. He chose you by using the Good News that we told you. You were chosen so that you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So, brothers and sisters, stand strong and continue to believe the teachings we gave you when we were there and by letter.
We pray that the Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father will comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. God loved us and gave us through his grace a wonderful hope and comfort that has no end.
Lord, I thank you for choosing me. I thank you for your awesome hope and comfort that have no end. I believe in your goodness, your faithfulness, your righteousness. You are a King worthy to be served, a Master worthy to be honored and a God worthy to be praised. I give this day to you, Lord. I give you my heart, my mind, my hands, my lips, my will. Guide me in how to be pleasing to you THIS day. Thank you, Father!
