Good morning, Father!
Thank you so much for giving me such a productive day yesterday with a new record — 10 new posts across 4 websites in 1 day — yay! I pray that you bless my efforts, Lord, and show me if I am doing anything that is NOT part of your plan and is therefore wasteful of my time.
Thank you, also, for helping me through heartache over the same betrayal that seems to never end. Thank you for holding my heart, and not letting me deliver my angry, pained words to either party involved. I give my heart to you, My Lord, knowing that you are caring for me and that I get my honor and dignity from YOU, not from how people treat me in secret or even to my face. Thank you, Lord, because I know you “got this”! 😀
Psalm 84:2-5, 10-12 ERV
LORD, I cannot wait to enter your Temple. I am so excited! Every part of me cries out to be with the Living God.
LORD All-Powerful, my King, my God, even the birds have found a home in your Temple. They make their nests near your altar, and there they have their babies.
Great blessings belong to those who live at your Temple! They continue to praise you. Selah
Great blessings belong to those who depend on you for strength! Their heart’s desire is to make the trip to your Temple.
One day in your Temple is better than a thousand days anywhere else. Serving as a guard at the gate of my God’s house is better than living in the homes of the wicked.
The LORD God is our protector and glorious king. He blesses us with kindness and honor. The LORD freely gives every good thing to those who do what is right.
LORD All-Powerful, great blessings belong to those who trust in you!
Lord, you are my JOY! I am so happy to read verses like these! I love the picture of the little birds dwelling beside your altar, inside your house. Lord, you know how I do NOT want my own “mansion” in heaven — I want to be where YOU are, to sit at your feet while you are upon the throne! I want to listen to you, feel your closeness, and continually dwell in your presence! I look forward to that time, when I am HOME with you. Please do not ever let me do anything to mess that up. I’ve said time and again that there is nothing in THIS life worth the living of it. And there is CERTAINLY nothing in this life worth losing eternity spent with you! Father, help me hang in there. Please bless my efforts, my work, my sacrifices. Please be my honor and my strength. Help me to be kind, even when I am being betrayed. Please let my words reach others and comfort their hearts, giving encouragement from your Living Word! 😀
