Good morning, Father.
Thank you for leading me past the major confusion yesterday, and helping me see a way that the new system COULD be done. I am still up to my waist in the Unknown, still trying to wade through it all to get to a solid footing on “dry land”, lol. But I know you will enable me to figure it out and get it done, Lord. You have never let me down! I know I can count on you to give me just what I need — WHEN I need it and sometimes not a moment before, hahaha. Please help me to continue to be patient with the process and keep trusting in you, and also not to get scared at the coming changes of location and situation, and other details of what possibly COULD happen. LOL, it reminds me of the quote from some famous person who said, “I have suffered many things in this world — most of which never happened.” Hahaha. Isn’t that just the way us crazy humans and our overactive imaginations work?! So Lord, I give it ALL to you — even the worst that COULD happen. I know that no matter what, you will be with me, comforting and encouraging me as you have since I was a tiny abused little child. You have always provided me with not just PEACE, but JOY that surpasses all understanding. All I ever have to do is be grateful for what I have, and what I have becomes ENOUGH. Thank you, faithful Shepherd!! It may not be easy, but it sure is simple.

 
Philippians 4:4-7 ERV

Always be filled with joy in the Lord. I will say it again. Be filled with joy. 
Let everyone see that you are gentle and kind. The Lord is coming soon. 
Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have. 
And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds.

 
Lord, I think it is way cool how you make our peace dependent upon belonging to Jesus rather than upon anything we do or don’t do. We don’t have to religiously attend church or sign up for endless services or pray a certain number of times or minutes every day, or even say certain key words and phrases or any of that human-imposed garbage. Instead, all we have to do is keep looking to you, keep returning our thoughts and hearts towards you and trust you to lead us and take awesome care of us — and we can be at peace and have JOY! Thank you thank you thank you for making it so simple and straightforward that everyone everywhere has a chance to have YOU as their Shepherd, and be safe and saved and FREE! HeeHEE! 😀
