Hello, Father.
Thank you for all your goodness and your care. Thank you for helping my heart over all the little insults and other speedbumps and potholes in the last few days. Thank you for being near me while I was in bed, comforting and encouraging me with your closeness. Truly you are my best friend and I do not deserve such an honor to know you at all! Truly you are a merciful and gracious God!

 
James 3:13-18 ERV

Are there any among you who are really wise and understanding? Then you should show your wisdom by living right. You should do what is good with humility. A wise person does not boast. 
If you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to boast. Your boasting is a lie that hides the truth. 
That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil. 
Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there will be confusion and every kind of evil. 
But the wisdom that comes from God is like this: First, it is pure. It is also peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help people who have trouble and to do good for others. This wisdom is always fair and honest. 
People who work for peace in a peaceful way get the blessings that come from right living.

 
Father, I thank you for all the wisdom you have granted to my husband and myself thus far, and for all that you WILL teach us in the years ahead. Father, please help us understand ourselves and each other better, and please protect us from both ourselves and other people and things. Teach us, Lord. Guide us forward, following you. And please bless each person whom I love with a closer, more intimate relationship with you. Thank you, Faithful Shepherd! 🙂
