Nov 29

Good morning, Lord!
Thank you for two awesome walks yesterday, in the morning and again in the evening! Thank you for the nice cool weather we’re having, staying in the 50s and 60s. Thank you for helping me prepare for even colder weather, down into the 30s! Please encourage me to try walking even when it gets colder, and help me to figure out how to keep warm and comfortable. Thank you, Father, for the peace in the house, and for establishing healing and joy. Please guide my husband today, show him a next stepping stone, to cross the bridge out of our severe financial difficulties. Help us to obtain transportation again, so that my husband can work. Please bring people to our house, looking to purchase our items for sale, if that is the way you have provided for us, Lord. Thank you for helping my heart to let go of things I THOUGHT I needed, when all I really DO need is YOU. Thank you, kind Shepherd!

 
Hebrews 6:10-19 ERV

God is fair, and he will remember all the work you have done. He will remember that you showed your love to him by helping his people and that you continue to help them.
We want each of you to be willing and eager to show your love like that the rest of your life. Then you will be sure to get what you hope for.
We don’t want you to be lazy. We want you to be like those who, because of their faith and patience, will get what God has promised.
God made a promise to Abraham. And there is no one greater than God, so he made the promise with an oath in his own name–an oath that he would do what he promised.
He said, “I will surely bless you. I will give you many descendants.”
Abraham waited patiently for this to happen, and later he received what God promised.
People always use the name of someone greater than themselves to make a promise with an oath. The oath proves that what they say is true, and there is no more arguing about it.
God wanted to prove that his promise was true. He wanted to prove this to those who would get what he promised. He wanted them to understand clearly that his purposes never change. So God said something would happen, and he proved what he said by adding an oath.
These two things cannot change: God cannot lie when he says something, and he cannot lie when he makes an oath. So these two things are a great help to us who have come to God for safety. They encourage us to hold on to the hope that is ours.
This hope is like an anchor for us.
It is strong and sure and keeps us safe. It goes behind the curtain.

 
Father, I ask you to remember the work my husband has done, all the mercy and patience and diligence he has shown, especially this last year. Please keep before you all the times he COULD have just finished what he was required to do and left, but instead stayed long hours to make sure the customer was happy — even when he KNEW he wasn’t going to get paid for it. Please remember his love for you, Father, and shower your mercy upon him now, according to your will and purpose. Give him hope to hold on to, and a goal to strive toward. Guide him and nurture him, Shepherd. Amen!
