Good morning, Lord!
Thank you for a cheerful start to my 46th birthday!! I’ve already been greeted by my Mate, my favorite of your creations, here with me, and I have a tremendous amount of hope and joy and enthusiasm, despite having a persistent annoying cough, having no place to call my own “home” on this earth, and no idea when or how I will be finally leaving my sister’s beautiful property in Iowa and heading back south for the winter — or even if I will be! LOL, I sincerely wish everyone could be as happy and joyous as little me, despite all the problems and troubles I have!! Life in service of the King, the faithful Shepherd, is just too awesome to be any more than momentarily discouraged or distracted by the troubles of this life. I have recently dealt with amazing amounts of disapointment and emotional trauma, and yet He has been with me every step of the way, gently leading me forward. I may have to deal with several difficulties at once, but He always makes sure I have everything I NEED to make it safely through them all. He has never let me down. I sincerely feel great sorrow for all people who do not get to experience this level of peace and security, and I ask, Lord, that you allow me to share as much of it as I possibly can with everyone I meet. If I may help anyone grow closer to a knowledge of you, please show me how. Let YOUR words be spoken, YOUR Love shine out. Please continue to cleanse me, pruning away all the things that get in the way, even the things I think I need or things I really enjoy but that do not promote YOUR will in me. I give you my mind, my heart, my spirit, my hands, my body, my words, my time. I trust you completely, faithful Shepherd. Lead me forward, showing me how I can help your people each and every day, in any way. Amen.

Psalm 31:3-9 ERV

Yes, you are my Rock and my protection. For the good of your name, lead me and guide me. 
Save me from the traps my enemy has set. You are my place of safety. 
LORD, you are the God we can trust. I put my life in your hands. Save me! 
I hate those who worship false gods. I trust only in the LORD. 
Your kindness makes me so happy. You have seen my suffering. You know about the troubles I have. 
You will not let my enemies take me. You will free me from their traps. 

LORD, I have many troubles, so be kind to me. I have cried until my eyes hurt. My throat and stomach are aching.
