Mar 6

Good morning, Father!
Thank you for getting me up and working so very early this morning, and thank you for my interest in just about everything under the sun, including technology and all the fun “toys” (tools) it provides. Thank you for my subscription to the whole suite of Adobe CC apps, and thank you for giving me time to practice with almost a dozen of them in just the last several days alone. Thank you for my easy delight over seemingly trivial things like color palettes and layouts and even the everyday rearrangement of time and space. Thank you for giving me a loose structure to work with, a scaffold to stand on to reach way over my head, and a few sincere critics that provide an alternate perspective, keeping me grounded in a secure way. Father, sometimes I wish I had the motivation and focus that it SEEMS a workmate or partner would provide, yet I appreciate that my Mate has NOT got his fingers in my digital pie (or in my books!), but just provides moral support from the sidelines. Still, if there is a way to include him in my work more, I ask you to reveal it to us both, allow us to see the path you have for us together through this dark yet intriguing world. Thank you, faithful Shepherd! 😀

 
1 Peter 2:6-12 ERV

The Scriptures say, “Look, I have chosen a cornerstone of great value, and I put that stone in Zion. Anyone who trusts in him will never be disappointed.” 
So, that stone brings honor for you who believe. But for those who don’t believe he is “the stone that the builders refused to accept, which became the most important stone.” 
For them he is also “a stone that makes people stumble, a rock that makes people fall.” People stumble because they don’t obey what God says. This is what God planned to happen to those people. 
But you are his chosen people, the King’s priests. You are a holy nation, people who belong to God. He chose you to tell about the wonderful things he has done. He brought you out of the darkness of sin into his wonderful light. 
In the past you were not a special people, but now you are God’s people. Once you had not received mercy, but now God has given you his mercy. 
Dear friends, you are like visitors and strangers in this world. So I beg you to keep your lives free from the evil things you want to do, those desires that fight against your true selves. 
People who don’t believe are living all around you. They may say that you are doing wrong. So live such good lives that they will see the good you do, and they will give glory to God on the day he comes.
