Good morning, Father.
I thank you that life is full of ups and downs, so that when we have down times, we can feel pretty certain that they will not last. I thank you for teaching me about yourself and your own struggles, and I ask you to help my heart and mind and body be strong — and I know you will always keep my spirit strong. Thank you.

 
Hosea 10:12 ERV

If you plant goodness, you will harvest faithful love. Plow your ground, and you will harvest with the LORD. He will come, and he will make goodness fall on you like rain. 

 
Hosea 11:3-4 ERV

“But I was the one who taught Ephraim to walk. I took the Israelites in my arms. I healed them, but they don’t know that. 
I led them with ropes, but they were ropes of love. I was like a person who set them free. I bent down and fed them.

 
Lord, I thank you for your enduring, precious love for your people! Thank you for helping me to understand your heart this tiny bit, and please help me to always be faithful to you, so that I do not hurt your heart. Help me to be strong, and wise, and focused on YOU. Help me to be grateful for whatever you give me, and not mourn the loss of other things that once were. I give my heart to you, Shepherd. Lead on.
