Good morning, Father!
Thank you so much for the fun time with my husband yesterday, and thank you for helping me get enough done all during the week that I could cheerfully give my time without feeling stressed or worried! Thank you again for communication with my sons yesterday, and please open the right doors for your will to be done for my family this Thanksgiving! Guide my youngest son to the right transportation and hotel reservations and such, and please let my husband’s truck hang in there and not break down until we can get up enough money to have it repaired (again). Thank you for your awesome care and provision, Lord.
1 Peter 4:8-11 ERV
Most important of all, love each other deeply, because love makes you willing to forgive many sins.
Open your homes to each other and share your food without complaining.
God has shown you his grace in many different ways. So be good servants and use whatever gift he has given you in a way that will best serve each other.
If your gift is speaking, your words should be like words from God. If your gift is serving, you should serve with the strength that God gives. Then it is God who will be praised in everything through Jesus Christ. Power and glory belong to him forever and ever. Amen.
Lord, I thank you for allowing me to have a home to open to others, and I ask that as the years go on you allow me to have actual beds and other amenities for guests. I delight in making people feel warm, welcome, comfortable and accepted! 😀
Lord, along those lines I ask that IF you allow me to be judged this day by my husband’s father and step-mother, that I be judged based on my strengths (such as acceptance and joy) rather than on my weaknesses (such as making money). I am YOUR servant, Lord. Help me to remember that it only matters what YOU think of me!
Romans 14:4 ERV
You cannot judge the servants of someone else. Their own master decides if they are doing right or wrong. And the Lord’s servants will be right, because the Lord is able to make them right.
Thank you for all the awesome lessons you teach me, Lord. Help me to remember them and keep them close. Help me to hold my tongue better than ever and to remember that you are not only my master, but also my defender and my protector. Help me to be HUMBLE, Lord. Give me awareness so that I may choose to do things your way instead of just blindly reacting to how I’ve been treated in the past. Let your love and peace be upon us all this day, and let there be NO ROOM for any “Tough Love” that is not of YOU, Father. Please help my husband and his father have some awesome fellowship today, and help them to best remember the things that they like and respect about each other. Amen!
