Hello, Father.
Thank you for this nice day, all the good-for-me food like fresh cherries and fresh corn on the cob, and thank you for a good talk with my sister this evening. Lord, I ask you to please be with my husband and guide him faithfully. Show him what to do with the camper, how to either get it here or what else to do with it. Please give him peace and an assurance that you have his back, that you got this. Lord, I pray that you help him have a good visit with his father and also with his mother, in your perfect timing. And Lord, you see my heart, how it grows harder for me every day, not being with my Mate, how I long for him to be HERE NOW. Please help me to be patient, to let you guide him and for me to stay out of the way, letting your will be done, in your timing, without my crazy human influence. Amen.

Isaiah 55 ERV

“All you people who are thirsty, come! Here is water for you to drink. Don’t worry if you have no money. Come, eat and drink until you are full! You don’t need money. The milk and wine are free. 
Why waste your money on something that is not real food? Why should you work for something that does not really satisfy you? Listen closely to me and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the food that satisfies your soul. 
Listen closely to what I say. Listen to me so that you will live. I will make an agreement with you that will last forever. It will be an agreement you can trust, like the one I made with David— a promise to love him and be loyal to him forever. 
I made David a witness of my power for all nations. I promised him that he would become a ruler and commander of many nations.” 
There are nations in places you don’t know, but you will call for them to come. They don’t know you, but they will run to you. This will happen because the LORD, your God, wants it. It will happen because the Holy One of Israel honors you. 
So you should look for the LORD before it is too late. You should call to him now, while he is near. 

Evil people should stop living evil lives. They should stop thinking bad thoughts. They should come to the LORD again, and he will comfort them. They should come to our God because he will freely forgive them. 
The LORD says, “My thoughts are not like yours. Your ways are not like mine. 
Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts.” 

“Rain and snow fall from the sky and don’t return until they have watered the ground. Then the ground causes the plants to sprout and grow, and they produce seeds for the farmer and food for people to eat. 
In the same way, my words leave my mouth, and they don’t come back without results. My words make the things happen that I want to happen. They succeed in doing what I send them to do. 
“So you will go out from there with joy. You will be led out in peace. When you come to the mountains and hills, they will begin singing. All the trees in the fields will clap their hands. 
Large cypress trees will grow where there were thornbushes. Myrtle trees will grow where there were weeds. All this will happen to make the LORD known, to be a permanent reminder of his goodness and power.” 

Lord, I thank you for making me able to see you in your Creation. I thank you for letting me feel you in your people. I thank you for your Holy Spirit within me, and within those whom you have chosen. Thank you for choosing me, giving me a chance to be found faithful to the end. Help me to remain teachable and humble and willing to follow my Shepherd each and every day, and to accept your will for me. Please bless those I love with peace this night, help each one to get to know you better, and to grow to be more and more FREE. Thank you, my Shepherd, for your awesome care of us all. 😀
