Good morning, Father.
This morning I am more excited about being yours, being under your wing, being nurtured and protected by you, than I am about anything else in life. Physically, I am irritated with too many mosquito bites in too many clothing-covered places — even though I have NOT been aware of a single mosquito in more than 2 weeks! Work-wise I am a bit frustrated, having too many directions to go and just beginning down one new path that has a learning curve and too many options and decisions to make. I miss making videos, and I hope to have time and mental energy to devote to that again SOON. Or at least to FINISH SOMETHING so that I do not linger too long in this disappointed, failure-ish feeling. And of course there is the BIG NEWS of my Mate having found a very decent, better than ever expected camper for only $1500 — and his mother being willing and able to buy it for us…! Of course, there are details to work out, and I am not holding my breath on that one. I am just giving ALL this stuff to YOU, Lord God, and being content and joyful, knowing that you are our faithful Shepherd, taking care of your flock and providing for ALL our needs. Thank you for being so very consistently reliable, Lord!! 😀

1 John 4:13-18 ERV

We know that we live in God and God lives in us. We know this because he gave us his Spirit. 
We have seen that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world, and this is what we tell people now. 
Anyone who says, “I believe that Jesus is the Son of God,” is a person who lives in God, and God lives in that person. 
So we know the love that God has for us, and we trust that love. God is love. Everyone who lives in love lives in God, and God lives in them. 
If God’s love is made perfect in us, we can be without fear on the day when God judges the world. We will be without fear, because in this world we are like Jesus. 
Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love takes away fear. It is his punishment that makes a person fear. So his love is not made perfect in the one who has fear.
