Lord, I thank you for the good rest, even though I have been having so much trouble actually sleeping, letting go, being unconscious, lately. 🙁 Father, please heal my Little Ones and their fears, as I truly do not know how to help my own self in that way. My everyday adult working self seems well enough, and I guess all I can really do is just keep praying, trusting you, and try to be patient with myself, even though I FEEL like I should long ago be all healed up by now. I give myself to you, Lord God. I trust you.
Proverbs 3:5-14 ERV
Trust the LORD completely, and don’t depend on your own knowledge.
With every step you take, think about what he wants, and he will help you go the right way.
Don’t trust in your own wisdom, but fear and respect the LORD and stay away from evil.
If you do this, it will be like a refreshing drink and medicine for your body.
Honor the LORD with your wealth and the first part of your harvest.
Then your barns will be full of grain, and your barrels will be overflowing with wine.
My son, don’t reject the LORD’S discipline, and don’t be angry when he corrects you.
The LORD corrects the one he loves, just as a father corrects a child he cares about.
Those who find wisdom are fortunate; they will be blessed when they gain understanding.
Profit that comes from wisdom is better than silver and even the finest gold.
Lord, I think it is sooooooo cool that I can now begin my work day from anywhere, at any time — even before I get out of bed and put my contacts in! Thank you so much for providing for me, Lord, and for encouraging me. I know I did not earn my phone, didn’t do anything to actually “deserve” it, but I do thank you that you helped my heart to be completely free of greed and desire for MORE, all those years that I have had the simple type of phone that had a 1 inch screen (if that!) and made me hit one button 3 or 4 times just to type a single letter, to text my children. All those times that people felt sorry for me, but I didn’t. I didn’t WANT a “smart phone” — didn’t think I would ever even need one! And now, you have gifted me with a most excellent one, with service that only costs me $13 per month, and it is even fingerprint-protected so that I can basically leave my websites open and keep writing, keep working, at all times. How COOL is that?! Lord, even more so, I thank you for strengthening my faith, showing me how well and how faithfully you provide. I shall do my best to let go of all my concerns, give them completely to you, and not worry about any of the things I truly do need, like food and shelter and warmth and transportation — and new contact lenses! I trust you AND your timing, Father. 😀
