Feb 12

Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for all your patience with us crazy humans and all our problems. Thank you for having an interest in us, even as individuals! Thank you for the deer in the forest that I know are still there, waiting to be encountered some day when I make it back to the landscape of nature. Thank you for planting desires for you and for your creation inside our hearts, drawing us to you in a special way for each special soul you created. Thank you for giving each one of us a chance to love you, Lord!

 
Job 7:17-19 ERV

God, why are people so important to you? Why do you even notice them? 
Why do you visit them every morning and test them at every moment? 
You never look away from me or leave me alone for a second. 

 
Psalm 8:3-9 ERV

I look at the heavens you made with your hands. I see the moon and the stars you created. 
And I wonder, “Why are people so important to you? Why do you even think about them? Why do you care so much about humans? Why do you even notice them?” 
But you made them almost like gods and crowned them with glory and honor. 
You put them in charge of everything you made. You put everything under their control. 
People rule over the sheep and cattle and all the wild animals. 
They rule over the birds in the sky and the fish that swim in the sea. 
LORD our Lord, your name is the most wonderful name in all the earth!

 
Lord, I thank you for taking notice of little me. Thank you for sending the 4 new members I’ve gotten this weekend, so that I can afford to pay my electric bill! I thank you for these warm days, so that having no heat has not caused any real harm or any unbearable discomfort. I thank you that I have gone almost a year now without a car — longest time in 30 years! — and yet I feel no real loss or disgrace. Thank you for helping me to keep my eyes on you and trust you no matter what. Thank you for taking care of me and those I love. I trust you completely, Lord. Amen! 😀
