Hello, Lord.
Please be with my husband today, guide him in what to do in Texas before he heads up here, Lord. We both trust you to close the right doors and open the right doors, so that we know and can do your will for us. Please help us both to surrender to your touch, your pressure, your guiding hand. Help me to be patient and to keep busy doing whatever YOU want me to do, Father. Help us both stay encouraged and light and hopeful, and please bring him here to me safely, whenever your timing allows. Please help us both to prepare for whatever you have coming for us in the next weeks and months. Amen.

Romans 15:3-7 ERV

Even Christ did not live trying to please himself. As the Scriptures say about him, “Those people who insulted you have also insulted me.” 
Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us. Those things were written so that we could have hope. That hope comes from the patience and encouragement that the Scriptures give us. 
All patience and encouragement come from God. And I pray that God will help you all agree with each other, as Christ Jesus wants. 
Then you will all be joined together. And all together you will give glory to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
Christ accepted you, so you should accept each other. This will bring honor to God.

Lord, I feel like I could really use a fresh dose of patience and encouragement. I know there are things I could be doing, perhaps even some I should be doing — but I just feel half-hearted and BLAH again. I have accomplished quite a bit this day already, so I kinda just want it to be over now, and be another day closer to reuniting with my Mate and seeing what you have next for us. Lord, I give my time and my mind and my body and my heart to you — again. Help me to make good use of the things you have already blessed me with. Show me how to use my time for YOU. Help me to rejoice and be grateful for what I have right here, right now. And please keep my husband safe and give him a pleasant trip north to me in your timing. Thank you, Shepherd.
