Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for giving me a bit of time with my husband in the early morning today, and thank you for helping his body fight off the sick he was getting. Please help me be patient today, Lord, for I feel like I’ve taken a step backwards with the hormones and am feeling worse again. I give it to you, Lord. I choose to be grateful for the awesome weather this morning, and the encouragement in my art, and even the good progress on my websites yesterday. I thank you for all the awesome books I have, and enough art supplies to make a bit more of my art, and even to start experimenting with water media! I am grateful for the Great Courses and my great love of learning! I thank you for making me aware and sensitive to nature, your creation, with a profound appreciation for your ALL your creation and its amazing structure and diversity! Help me to let go of my frustrations and worries, Father, and just hand them all over to you. I am just a servant, and my Faithful Shepherd will lead me to good waters. I trust you, Lord. Amen!
Jeremiah 51:15-19 ERV
God used his great power and made the earth. He used his wisdom to build the world and his understanding to stretch out the skies.
When he thunders, the waters in the skies roar. He sends clouds all over the earth. He sends lightning with the rain. He brings out the wind from his storehouses.
But people are so stupid. They don’t understand what God has done. Skilled workers make statues of false gods. Those statues are only false gods. They show how foolish those workers are. Those statues are not alive.
Those idols are worthless. People made them, and they are nothing but a joke. Their time of judgment will come, and those idols will be destroyed.
But God, who is Jacob’s Portion, is not like those worthless statues. People didn’t make God; God made his people. He made everything. His name is the LORD All-Powerful.
Hosea 6:3 ERV
Let’s learn about the LORD. Let’s try very hard to know him. We know he is coming, just as we know the dawn is coming. He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain that waters the ground.
Lord, help me to know you better. Teach me something about yourself and your creation today. Give me a new reason to delight in your awesomeness! And help me to sincerely appreciate all that you have already blessed me with. Thank you, Father! 😀
