Feb 16

Good morning, Father.
Thank you for protecting and caring for myself and my loved ones. Thank you for helping me be calm and hopeful, and thank you for the super-productive day yesterday! Thank you for making my body strong enough to walk an hour and carry back groceries, day after day, week after week, month after month. Thank you for this time of extreme poverty, so that I can appreciate so many little things in life that are usually taken for granted. Thank you for my art, my books, my love of learning. And thank you, once again, for my work and my Great Courses, lol. 🙂

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 ERV

Always be full of joy. 
Never stop praying. 
Whatever happens, always be thankful.
This is how God wants you to live in Christ Jesus. 
Don’t stop the work of the Holy Spirit. 
Don’t treat prophecy like something that is not important. 
But test everything. Keep what is good, 
and stay away from everything that is evil. 
We pray that God himself, the God of peace, will make you pure—belonging only to him. We pray that your whole self—spirit, soul, and body—will be kept safe and be blameless when our Lord Jesus Christ comes. 
The one who chose you will do that for you. You can trust him. 

Lord, I pray that you make me pure and belonging only to you. I know that I can trust you completely. Please give me discernment to know what is good and keep it, and to stay away from all evil. Help me to let GO of everything that holds me back or makes me impure or less useful to you. Help me not to follow my heart or mind blindly, but to train them to follow you, and to only desire the things that are of you. Thank you for all that you allow me to have this day, and thank you for making me who I am. Protect and nurture those whom I love, and lead us along the path to you. Amen.
