Good morning, Father!
This morning I feel very grateful to be alive, and I am excited to spend this day creating with the Creator! Lord, I thank you for the joy in my heart, the closeness I feel with you, and the opportunities I have to grow and learn and share the adventure of life with my eternal Husband! I thank you for my earthly husband and our amazing closeness as well. I thank you for my beautiful children, and the awesome people I consider my friends. I thank you for the strength and health of my body and mind and spirit, even as you lead me into greater health and stability all the time. Please encourage me to eat healthy today and get plenty of exercise, and to spend even more time in your Word and sharing my day with you, Lord Jesus. I trust you completely, and I give this day and my self to you. Amen.

 
Philippians 4:4-13 ERV

Always be filled with joy in the Lord. I will say it again. Be filled with joy. 
Let everyone see that you are gentle and kind. The Lord is coming soon. 
Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have. 
And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds. 

Brothers and sisters, continue to think about what is good and worthy of praise. Think about what is true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected. 
And do what you learned and received from me—what I told you and what you saw me do. And the God who gives peace will be with you. 
I am so happy, and I thank the Lord that you have again shown your care for me. You continued to care about me, but there was no way for you to show it. 
I am telling you this, but not because I need something. I have learned to be satisfied with what I have and with whatever happens. 
I know how to live when I am poor and when I have plenty. I have learned the secret of how to live through any kind of situation—when I have enough to eat or when I am hungry, when I have everything I need or when I have nothing. 
Christ is the one who gives me the strength I need to do whatever I must do.
 

 
Lord Jesus, I thank you for being ENOUGH. I thank you for being and doing and providing everything that I ever need. I thank you for touching the hearts and lives of each of your people, and building your living Church in us. Please humble me, Lord. Purify me with your Truth, even when it hurts or takes things away that I might think that I need. I know that all I truly do need is YOU — your mercy and your grace and your provision. THANK YOU for teaching me, leading me, sustaining me, and creating a new creature in me, bit by bit, day by day. Amen.
