Mar 24

Good morning, Father.
Thank you for this delightfully warm and fresh-scented morning, already opening up the windows in the little popup camper before 10am! Today is supposed to get into the upper-80s, but I know I will be just fine despite the heat. It is awesome to think that I will NOT be stuck in Texas this summer, but will at least have the possibility of traveling to the northern forests and wetlands — getting closer to my heart’s home in nature than I have been in a decade — WOOT!!

 
Romans 1:20-24 ERV

There are things about God that people cannot see—his eternal power and all that makes him God. But since the beginning of the world, those things have been easy for people to understand. They are made clear in what God has made. So people have no excuse for the evil they do. 
People knew God, but they did not honor him as God, and they did not thank him. Their ideas were all useless. There was not one good thought left in their foolish minds. 
They said they were wise, but they became fools. 
Instead of honoring the divine greatness of God, who lives forever, they traded it for the worship of idols—things made to look like humans, who get sick and die, or like birds, animals, and snakes. 
People wanted only to do evil. So God left them and let them go their sinful way. And so they became completely immoral and used their bodies in shameful ways with each other. 

 
Father, I thank you for keeping myself and my family more or less protected from the most evil parts of this world. I pray that you continue to protect each one of my children, along with my stepson. Help them each to be strong in their faith and not become “pansexuals” or some other version of anti-gender modernist. Let them remember the lessons of their youth, all the times I pointed out to them the majesty and might and wisdom of our awesome Creator, who made all creatures decidedly male or female, establishing that and a great many other orders to life. Help each of my children grow in wisdom, even as this world seems to sink deeper and deeper into foolishness. Help my own heart to be strong, as I still feel love and appreciation even for the artists on dA that call themselves “pansexual”. Their self-appointed labels do not make me like them any less — I just feel great sorrow for their foolishness and lack of respect for our awesome Creator. If you can use me to help even one of them, Lord, please teach me how. Use me as a tool to shine the light of your Truth, even if it goes mostly ignored in the surrounding darkness. Amen.
