Good morning, Father!
Thank you for holding me this morning, preparing me, comforting me, healing me. Thank you for taking such awesome care of my husband, keeping him busy and hopeful during this time of could-be upheaval. It is such an encouraging witness to myself and to my daughter to see how far you’ve brought my husband, from fear and desperate retaliation, to a calm dependence upon you. Thank you so much for making him YOURS! 😀

 
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 ERV

We pray that God himself, the God of peace, will make you pure–belonging only to him. We pray that your whole self–spirit, soul, and body–will be kept safe and be blameless when our Lord Jesus Christ comes.
The one who chose you will do that for you. You can trust him.

 
My translation, straight from the Greek:
God will purify you completely, to the end. He will keep an eye on your pneuma and psyche and soma, guarding you faultlessly until the return of His son.
God is Faithful. He will do it.

Wow! What an awesome, comforting promise! Thank you, Lord, that I can count on you, that you are Faithful and that you care for me, guarding each part of me, the three parts that you made in the image of your three parts. Thank you so very much for reaching out to me, and making yourself known to me — beginning when I was such a small, needy child. Thank you for never giving up on me, and for not condemning me when I was not looking to you but to myself. Guide me now, this day, this moment, to do what pleases you. Mold me into a form that you find pleasing and that will bring you glory at the appointed time.

Thank you, Lord, for watching over my husband and my children as diligently as you do my own 3-part self! 😀
