Hello, Lord!
Thank you for the awesome restoration of peace and hope! Although we are no closer to getting our camper rebuilt so that we have a place to sleep, and although I am a little bit disappointed at the lack of response from all the emails I sent out yesterday, I am very grateful instead for the healing of relationships and the gathering of resources while I still have internet access! I think this is the best day I’ve had all month, and I thank you for returning to me a measure of joy that I was beginning to think was lost for good. Please continue to bring your healing and restoration, Shepherd. Show me how to make the best use of my time and other resources, and help me to have discernment when and how to do my digital learning and work. Thank you for progress, Lord – what a relief! 🙂

James 5:16

(ERV)  So always tell each other the wrong things you have done. Then pray for each other. Do this so that God can heal you. Anyone who lives the way God wants can pray, and great things will happen.
(ISV)  Therefore, make it your habit to confess your sins to one another and to pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
(KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Lord, I thank you for all the prayers of your saints. Thank you for giving me people to pray for, and thank you for providing people who are praying for me and for my family. Father I thank you again for the loving reception I received at Hope Fellowship Church a few days ago. Thank you for bringing me one step closer to feeling something BESIDES the typical condemnation and rejection by what my experience has been so far with confessed Christians. This experience gives me HOPE that I may in fact find a loving family of believers scattered everywhere, as we travel across the country as “homeless nomads”. Father, I ask you to help me to be humble, patient, quiet, and even simple. I get so emotional sometimes, so worked up around people. I know man’s Psychology would say it is because I didn’t form an attachment bond to another human until I was a mother myself at age 17. And in truth I have lived in isolation most of my adult life and therefore have not had much in-person social experience outside of college. However, I thank you for making me just who I am and giving me all the trials and struggles which have made me who I am, because it proves just how little strength or “normality” or “perfection” is needed in order to be used by YOU, oh Redeemer! Thank you for making me a fool for you, Lord. Lead on!
