May 2

Good morning, Lord.
I am starting to get little twinges of fear and self-doubt, now that the time is near to leave this place and be homeless nomads. I don’t really feel any regret, and I do have a measure of excited anticipation, but the negative emotions do seem to have increased in the last few days. I think I’m a little scared. However, I do thank you, Lord, for the awesome peace and joy I have that far outweigh all the negatives, always giving me stability and security. I know that you are in charge. Please supply a way for us to get the truck from Oklahoma in a couple days, when it is ready. Thank you, faithful Shepherd!

 
Isaiah 41:10 ERV

Don’t worry—I am with you. Don’t be afraid—I am your God. I will make you strong. I will help you. I will support you with my right hand that brings victory.

 
Matthew 6:25-34 ERV

“So I tell you, don’t worry about the things you need to live—what you will eat, drink, or wear. Life is more important than food, and the body is more important than what you put on it. 
Look at the birds. They don’t plant, harvest, or save food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. Don’t you know you are worth much more than they are? 
You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it. 
“And why do you worry about clothes? Look at the wildflowers in the field. See how they grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. 
But I tell you that even Solomon, the great and rich king, was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. 
If God makes what grows in the field so beautiful, what do you think he will do for you? It’s just grass—one day it’s alive, and the next day someone throws it into a fire. But God cares enough to make it beautiful. Surely he will do much more for you. Your faith is so small! 
“Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 
That’s what those people who don’t know God are always thinking about. Don’t worry, because your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things. 
What you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what he wants you to do. Then he will give you all these other things you need. 
So don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Tomorrow will have its own worries.
 

 
Lord, I thank you that I do not HAVE TO worry, that I have you always protecting me and providing for my needs. All I need do is keep praying, keep thanking you for everything I have and everything I endure, and keep being willing to do whatever you give me to do. Father, please guide me with your Holy Spirit and your Word. Help me not to miss a turn in the road. Give me a chance to hear your voice and obey. Help me not to get caught up in what I think I need to do. Along those lines, Lord, I lift up the video production and all the work with both digital and tangible things that I’ve been working on. I have gotten rather discouraged lately, but I ask you to encourage me in the things that YOU want me to learn and do and accomplish before I leave here. And help me to remember that leaving this place and starting our nomadic life is not an end but rather just a change of season. Thank you for your awesome care, Lord God. I trust you completely.
