Feb 22

Hello, Father.
Thank you for the crazy days and the shaking of foundations and preconceptions. Thank you for new understandings and new freedoms. Thank you for sustaining me and growing me. Thank you for bringing each of my children safely through ALL of their teenage years — complete as of TODAY! Please give my daughter a joyful twentieth birthday today, and please help us to know what to do tomorrow and beyond, to prepare to move to a new home — or some type of temporary place — in approximately one month. Please help my heart be strong through these extremely unstable times, Father. YOU are my stability.

Psalm 62 ERV

To the director, Jeduthun. A song of David. I must calm down and turn to God; only he can rescue me. 
He is my Rock, the only one who can save me. He is my high place of safety, where no army can defeat me. 
How long will you people attack me? Do you all want to kill me? I am like a leaning wall, like a fence ready to fall. 
You want only to destroy me, to bring me down from my important position. It makes you happy to tell lies about me. In public, you say nice things, but in private, you curse me. Selah 
I must calm down and turn to God; he is my only hope. 
He is my Rock, the only one who can save me. He is my high place of safety, where no army can defeat me. 
My victory and honor come from God. He is the mighty Rock, where I am safe. 
People, always put your trust in God! Tell him all your problems. God is our place of safety. Selah 
People cannot really help. You cannot depend on them. Compared to God, they are nothing— no more than a gentle puff of air! 
Don’t trust in your power to take things by force. Don’t think you will gain anything by stealing. And if you become wealthy, don’t put your trust in riches. 
God says there is one thing you can really depend on, and I believe it: “Strength comes from God!” 
My Lord, your love is real. You reward all people for what they do. 

Father, I thank you for the reward of your presence in my life. Thank you for your closeness and the comfort of your Spirit. Thank you for the calmness I experience — at least MOST of the time. Thank you for the work you’ve given me, even though I can do very little of it right now. It gives me hope for the future, and structure for whatever time is not eaten up by daily life and preparations. I give you my time, Lord, and I ask you to guide me and help me to be pleasing to you. Help me to be ready for anything and everything that is coming in the next few months, through prayer and thanksgiving.

Colossians 4:2 ERV

Never stop praying. Be ready for anything by praying and being thankful.
