Hello, Father!
Thank you, my Shepherd, for answered prayer. Sometimes we pray particularly for one thing with our mind and tongue, and yet you bless us with something that is even closer to our hearts, something we perhaps did not pray in words but within our heart’s desire. Or there might be a desire that is so central to our life and being that even on days that we do not actively pray for it, it is always there, never forgotten even when not spoken. It is that type of answered prayer that you have blessed us with this day, and I thank you and praise you for allowing it to be part of your will and plan for us. This day I see even more clearly how you are the Mover of Men’s Hearts (and women’s too, of course), for it is obvious to me that even though our circumstance has not actually changed for better or for worse, yet our attitude and levels of hope and faith and JOY have radically altered in the last two days. Where once I did not think I could even survive, now I see that YOU can help us thrive, Lord. How awesome your provision is for us crazy Homeless Nomads, lol. 😀

 
Psalm 30 ERV

A song of David for the dedication of the Temple. LORD, you lifted me out of my troubles. You did not give my enemies a reason to laugh, so I will praise you. 
LORD my God, I prayed to you, and you healed me. 
LORD, you lifted me out of the grave. I was falling into the place of death, but you saved my life. 
Praise the LORD, you who are loyal to him! Praise his holy name! 
His anger lasts for a little while, but then his kindness brings life. The night may be filled with tears, but in the morning we can sing for joy! 
When I was safe and secure, I thought nothing could hurt me. 
Yes, LORD, while you were kind to me, I felt that nothing could defeat me. But when you turned away from me, I was filled with fear. 
So, LORD, I turned and prayed to you. I asked you, Lord, to show me mercy. 
I said, “What good is it if I die and go down to the grave? The dead just lie in the dirt. They cannot praise you. They cannot tell anyone how faithful you are. 
LORD, hear my prayer, and be kind to me. LORD, help me!” 
You have changed my sorrow into dancing. You have taken away my sackcloth and clothed me with joy. 
You wanted me to praise you and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise you forever!
