I shall yet learn, and grow beyond the immaturity of adulthood. I shall again laugh, and learn the wisdom of a child.

Good morning, Father.
Thank you for new understandings, new insights, new growth. Thank you for adequate health and sleep and nutrition. Father, I still have trouble with my vision and these terrible headaches and crazy hormones. So many old injuries seem to be acting up at once, that it seems quite likely to be an attack of the enemy, some type of distraction or discouragement. Therefore I lift my body up to you, a living sacrifice for you, Lord God. My body is your temple, for your Holy Spirit dwells so wonderfully and encouragingly within me. I trust you completely, and I thank you for allowing me to be led of you and be sheltered and protected and nurtured by you. Please help me to share your Love with everyone I come into contact with today, and please continue to grow me for you. Amen!

1 Corinthians 6:15-20 ERV

Surely you know that your bodies are parts of Christ himself. So I must never take what is part of Christ and join it to a prostitute! 
The Scriptures say, “The two people will become one.” So you should know that anyone who is joined with a prostitute becomes one with her in body. 
But anyone who is joined with the Lord is one with him in spirit. 
So run away from sexual sin. It involves the body in a way that no other sin does. So if you commit sexual sin, you are sinning against your own body. 
You should know that your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit that you received from God and that lives in you. You don’t own yourselves. 
God paid a very high price to make you his. So honor God with your body. 

Lord, I ask you to heal my body, let your Life have its way in my physical being rather than death. Show me how I can minimize the effects of age, past injuries, and current circumstances. Please heal my husband’s body as well, so he can be strong and flexible enough to work on our little camper and any other projects you give us. Make me always strong enough to help him when he really needs it, merciful Shepherd. Please help my heart and mind to be strong and full of your Love, so that when these aches remind me of the abuse that caused them, I do not slip into any form of bitterness or self-pity. I would rather see every little thing I’ve suffered as a way that I have grown and become more pleasing to you. I am grateful for all the lessons you’ve provided, in all their forms. Thank you for your loving care, faithful Shepherd! 😀
