Good morning, Father!
Thank you for all the awesome walks lately — six walks in 3 days and over 5 1/2 miles yesterday alone! WOOT! I feel good, knowing I have made good use of the sunshine and the last part of the warm weather this season. Thank you for helping me use the weather wisely, Lord — even having a photo shoot outside on the porch a couple times, taking pics of my most recently completed artworks in the natural light. Thank you so much for giving my friend in New York some joy yesterday, and thank you for keeping my husband’s head up. Please motivate him into ACTION today, so he can start to feel better. Amen!
Jude 1:20-25 ERV
But you, dear friends, use your most holy faith to build yourselves up even stronger. Pray with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Keep yourselves safe in God’s love, as you wait for the Lord Jesus Christ in his mercy to give you eternal life.
Help those who have doubts.
Rescue those who are living in danger of hell’s fire. There are others you should treat with mercy, but be very careful that their filthy lives don’t rub off on you.
God is strong and can keep you from falling. He can bring you before his glory without any wrong in you and give you great joy.
He is the only God, the one who saves us. To him be glory, greatness, power, and authority through Jesus Christ our Lord for all time past, now, and forever. Amen.
Father, I thank you for all your awesome care! Thank you for my dear friend in New York and thank you for my awesome husband and children, Lord. Thank you for the time I had with my Tiny Friend, who has been gone now almost half a year. He was an amazing testament to your goodness and a wonderful example of faithfulness and forgiveness and courage. I still get a little teary-eyed to write about him, but I value the lessons he taught me and the love he gave us all. Father, please help me in my work today. I want to reach out and encourage others in new ways. I want to provide resources and a bit of encouraging guidance to whomever you will put before me, Lord. I pray that you “expand my territory” and extend my reach, Father. Guide both my husband and myself into a new season of our lives, where we can help others in new ways. Thank you, most awesome Shepherd!
