Nov 8

Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for helping me past all the little twinges of dread and anxiety I have had in the last couple days, and please guide me in the best ways to use the remaining days I have left in the comfort of my sister’s home. I do not know what lies ahead this winter, and it really feels like stepping off a cliff into the Unknown, but I am still trusting you completely, Lord Jesus. I know that no matter what, I have your Spirit to comfort me, to make me strong and able to face whatever is given me. I even have my Mate, who is probably just as scared as I am, yet just as willing to trust you to lead us forward. I have my warm blanket — and some fabric left to make a couple pillows to take with us. I have ENOUGH warm clothing, and I have a trickle of income that could be enough to pay for a little food and perhaps some gas for the truck. I can trust you to provide for ALL our needs, both the physical as well as the emotional, mental, and spiritual. I choose to follow you forward into the Unknown, Lord, instead of remaining in my comfort zone. Please help me to be faithful and pleasing to you. Amen.

2 Timothy 1:7-9 ERV

The Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid. His Spirit is a source of power and love and self-control. 
So don’t be ashamed to tell people about our Lord Jesus.
And don’t be ashamed of me—I am in prison for the Lord. But suffer with me for the Good News. God gives us the strength to do that. 
God saved us and chose us to be his holy people, but not because of anything we ourselves did. God saved us and made us his people because that was what he wanted and because of his grace. That grace was given to us through Christ Jesus before time began.

Psalm 143:8-12 ERV

Show me your faithful love this morning. I trust in you. Show me what I should do. I put my life in your hands!
LORD, I come to you for protection. Save me from my enemies.
Show me what you want me to do. You are my God. Let your good Spirit lead me over level ground.
LORD, let me live so that people will praise your name. Show me how good you are and save me from my trouble.
Show me your love and defeat my enemies. Destroy those who are trying to kill me because I am your servant.

Lord, I do not perceive any enemies besides the sticky fingers of anxiety that tickle the edges of my awareness off and on each day, especially when I awake in the night (or early morning, actually). I ask you to help me stay strong and never give into those doubts that plague me. Help me to live only for you, and be humble and teachable and willing to serve you in whatever situation I find myself. Thank you for this day, another opportunity to learn and grow more. 🙂
