Good morning, Father.
Thank you for your awesome care, keeping us safe and in good health. Thank you for giving us enough wood to heat part of the house up a bit, so we do not get too cold and discouraged. Please guide us each step of the way, Father. None of us know what is the BEST thing to do, and the best timing — we really need your help, Lord. Please help my heart as I complete this round of OTC hormone treatment, and make my way to the next plateau of peace and “normal” days — although with our living situation so unstable, and no car and no heat, “normal” is still pretty scary. But at least my emotions should stabilize a bit better. Thank you, Father. Please help our hearts be faithful and strong, as we trust in you and look to you for guidance. Amen.
1 Peter 5:6-11 ERV
So be humble under God’s powerful hand. Then he will lift you up when the right time comes.
Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you.
Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat.
Refuse to follow the devil. Stand strong in your faith. You know that your brothers and sisters all over the world are having the same sufferings that you have.
Yes, you will suffer for a short time. But after that, God will make everything right. He will make you strong. He will support you and keep you from falling. He is the God who gives all grace. He chose you to share in his glory in Christ. That glory will continue forever.
All power is his forever. Amen.
Lord, I trust you completely. I know that you will make me strong and help me through these frightening times. You will carry my sorrows, and allow me to keep giving my worries to you. Thank you for caring for me so faithfully, my Shepherd! Please help me be faithful to you! Amen. 🙂
