Jan 8

Hello, Father.
Thank you for a bit more time at the library, a bit of internet time that has been rare indeed and which may remain so for the near future. Father, I do not know what you are trying to teach me, or for what you are preparing me, but the events of the last few days have really got me questioning myself, oscillating from one extreme of courage and confidence, to the other extreme of feeling wounded and cursed. Please help me to just be patient with your process, and not even try to figure things out. Help me to just accept each moment as it comes, seeking out how best to serve you at that time. Help me to be calm and quiet, as best as I can be. Cleanse me of pride and help me to remember that I do NOT need to defend myself. I can trust you to protect me and provide for me. Thank you, faithful Shepherd. 🙂

 
1 Peter 3:3-6 ERV

It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry, or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. 
No, your beauty should come from inside you—the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. That beauty will never disappear. It is worth very much to God. 
It was the same with the holy women who lived long ago and followed God. They made themselves beautiful in that same way. They were willing to serve their husbands. 
I am talking about women like Sarah. She obeyed Abraham, her husband, and called him her master. And you women are true children of Sarah if you always do what is right and are not afraid.

 
Lord, you know that my greatest desires in this life are to be faithful to you, and for those whom I love to be FREE and to have a personal relationship with you. I thank you for every day that my children, myself, and my Mate have a chance to grow closer to you, and more FREE. Please help me to appreciate each day as a gift from you. Help me to stop being influenced by things around me and the crazy emotions inside of me. Help me to rest in YOU and upon the stability of your Word, your will, your unchanging faithfulness and mercy. Amen.
