Good morning, Lord!
Oh, I am so excited and so nervous at the same time! We are about to load up all my boxes of books and other things and drive over to our NEW storage space that you provided for only $35 per month. I know it may be a small thing when looking at the whole big picture, but to me this is my BIG deal…! You know my heart, Lord. You know that one of my biggest weaknesses is feeling like a burden, like I am taking up too much space, am too heavy, too loud, too… -anything that is the opposite of small and easy to endure. So asking my husband to lift the heaviest boxes that I cannot manage, praying you will not let my things hurt him, and then seeing the full extent of the space my things take up in this world… it is nearly overwhelming, Father. Please help my heart to be brave and my body to be strong. Please protect my husband and help him to be gentle and not crush me with sharp words while I am weak. Thank you, merciful Shepherd.

1 Peter 5:6-9 ERV

So be humble under God’s powerful hand. Then he will lift you up when the right time comes. 
Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you. 
Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat. 
Refuse to follow the devil. Stand strong in your faith. You know that your brothers and sisters all over the world are having the same sufferings that you have.

Lord, I tremble. Hold me tight and don’t let me fall. I am sooooooo looking forward to feeling more FREE once all my stuff is in storage. Then I am able to just leave it all behind and walk forward, being much smaller and lighter. Yay! Thank you so much, Lord, for giving me few THINGS to care for in this life, so instead I can focus on following you and sharing your Love with others. Amen!
