Lord, I thank you for my health, my stamina, my growing muscles and decreasing fat reserves, lol. I thank you for my desire for fresh foods and my growing dislike for fried, greasy, or otherwise unhealthy foodstuffs. I ask you to keep teaching me how to take better care of my body, and please keep encouraging me in my dance workouts! Father, I thank you also for encouraging me to not get depressed and worried due to not hearing from my husband in 48 hours now. I don’t want him to carry any additional burden by feeling like he is making me worry. To be honest, the worrying isn’t so bad, but the level of distraction is so crazy that it is hard to do anything serious at all. I just have to keep doing short little tasks that do not require concentration, and sleep whenever I can, for however long I can manage. I feel like my brain is half-dead, as my heart is half-empty. I guess that statement makes me an emotional pessimist, lol. I am sooooooo ready for this horrible separation to END!!!

2 Corinthians 6:6-10 ERV

We show that we are God’s servants by our pure lives, by our understanding, by our patience, and by our kindness. We show it by the Holy Spirit, by genuine love, 
2Co 6:7  by speaking the truth, and by depending on God’s power. This right way of living has prepared us to defend ourselves against every kind of attack. 
2Co 6:8  Some people honor us, but others shame us. Some people say good things about us, but others say bad things. Some people say we are liars, but we speak the truth. 
2Co 6:9  To some people we are not known, but we are well known. We seem to be dying, but look! We continue to live. We are punished, but we are not killed. 
2Co 6:10  We have much sadness, but we are always rejoicing. We are poor, but we are making many people rich in faith. We have nothing, but really we have everything.

Lord, I have lots of kindness, lots of Love… I speak truth and I depend upon your power all the time. Most of the time, I even have quite a bit of patience. Right now, though, I feel like I am about to the end of my limit of endurance. I do super-appreciate your Spirit comforting me, encouraging me, reassurring me. Without your help I would be a total mess! But Father, please do bring my husband OUT of Texas SOON! It really does seem like the enemy is pulling out all the stops to prevent him from breaking FREE and getting to the next stage in his life — in our lives! I trust you, mighty Shepherd, to only allow the enemy to create a delay to the extent that YOUR will allows. I trust you to be the Mover of Men’s Hearts and to faithfully guide my husband’s heart in the direction of his own freedom. Thank you for your faithful care, Lord. Help me be patient. Amen.
