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

Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for helping me FIX my websites yesterday, even though I had to learn some new PHP so fast, under so much pressure, that I seriously felt like my head was exploding, lol. Lord, you were so merciful in your dealings with me, and I am very grateful. You gave me exactly what I needed, enough to stumble forward and get it done, quickly enough that I didn’t give up. And when I got to a decent stopping point, you helped me to just pause and go for a short walk and hang out with some good people, even helping a couple, and then right back at it, working on the sites, moving forward. Now, although I have quite a bit of CSS work to do to make the sites customized with the proper colors and fonts and such, they are all functional, presentable, and even scalable and physically responsive. Now, I plan to use the next 4-5 hours to continue converting my website over, from offering thousands of pages for free, to asking $5 for 24 hour access to them. I pray that you bless my efforts, and guide me through your comforting, encouraging Spirit, how to work, how to relax, and when to stop and do something else. I trust you completely, my Shepherd. Amen.

Titus 3:5-7 ERV

He saved us because of his mercy, not because of any good things we did. He saved us through the washing that made us new people. He saved us by making us new through the Holy Spirit. 
God poured out to us that Holy Spirit fully through Jesus Christ our Savior. 
We were made right with God by his grace. God saved us so that we could be his children and look forward to receiving life that never ends. 

Hebrews 4:14-16 ERV

We have a great high priest who has gone to live with God in heaven. He is Jesus the Son of God. So let us continue to express our faith in him. 
Jesus, our high priest, is able to understand our weaknesses. When Jesus lived on earth, he was tempted in every way. He was tempted in the same ways we are tempted, but he never sinned. 
With Jesus as our high priest, we can feel free to come before God’s throne where there is grace. There we receive mercy and kindness to help us when we need it. 

Lord, I thank you for your awesome mercy and salvation. I thank you for providing us with your Holy Spirit, to guide us through the maze and haze of this crazy human life, to find our way forward through the darkness, following your Light. I thank you for the comfort of your constant presence, without which I would surely be dead. Thank you for fellowship of your Spirit in others who seek you and love you, and thank you for helping us see even tiny bits of your Love in people who feel hurt by Christianity like I was, people who may actually love YOU, and allow you to work in their lives, but who may not feel comfortable going to church or calling themselves “Christians” or “spiritual” or any such label. Thank you for making me just a little wise, enough to recognize your Spirit in so many people, regardless of where they are, who they are, and what label or clothing they wear, lol. Thank you for making me a simple person, one of your Little Ones, so that I can be free from some of the bondage of this world — the kind that makes people feel like they must conform to some crazy standard of professionalism or even adulthood, hahaha. Thank you for sending my son to talk to me yesterday, too, Lord, for his words always cheer my heart, and thank you for setting each of my own children free in certain ways from the confines of this world. Thank you for caring for my children, even as you care for little me each day. Help me to live more and more for YOU, my Shepherd. Amen.
