Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for this warmer weather — it was GREAT to have the windows and door open again yesterday! Thank you for helping us get my car ready for sale, and please bring the right people here to buy it, and please protect me from those who would take advantage. Please also protect my heart, Lord. I haven’t been able to drive that car for about a year now, but I know it is a symbol of my freedom and independence, so I ask YOU to be my freedom and my only true dependence! Please help me to use the money from the sale of my car to get the RIGHT laptop — one that will serve me VERY well in the months to come. And please help my husband use the rest of the money wisely, getting only the things we truly will need, to make it on our homeless adventures. Help him to understand these electrical and cooling issues better than any MAN could teach him, and please give him clear direction on what to get and what NOT to get. Please protect us from those who would take advantage or deal falsely. Amen.
Genesis 21:22-34 KJV
And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest:
Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son’s son: but according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned.
And Abraham said, I will swear.
And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech’s servants had violently taken away.
And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing: neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day.
And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant.
And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou hast set by themselves?
And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well.
Wherefore he called that place Beersheba; because there they sware both of them.
Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba: then Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.
And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.
And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines’ land many days.
Lord, I thank you that you are such an awesome storyteller! I thank you that I can trust you to write the story of my own life in a way that is pleasing to you. I thank you for forgiveness, and I thank you for HOPE. I thank you for giving me a new way to tell stories — through video! Father, thank you for helping me create my very FIRSTEST video EVER! 🙂 Please help me continue to practice with Animoto, then to make the transition to Adobe Premier Pro CC and Audition CC. Lord, please help me to ascend the learning curve of this industry-standard software, so that I can have a skill to trade on the road, and so that I can help my husband in his goal of having one or more YouTube channels. I thank you for making me a quick learner — and for all the other gifts you have grown inside me, equipping me faithfully for whatever you have coming for us the rest of this year and beyond. I trust you, Shepherd. Lean on!
