Good morning, Father!
Thank you for a fresh new day, and some good sleep at last! Thank you for my awesome Mate and our closeness… AND our new little home that he is cleaning and fixing up for us to come back to Texas to live in together in a couple months! Please watch over it while we are away, protect it while we spend a little time together in Iowa — our last days in the popup camper. Please protect my Mate as he drives back and forth to his mother’s, and please give them an awesome, blessed visit together. Lord, I ask that you guide me in the next ten days or so before my Mate arrives here — help me to order my time wisely and accomplish all that I need to get done before he gets here and my schedule and lifestyle changes a bit to accommodate having my best friend back in my physical presence. It has been nice talking to him on the phone several times every single day lately (LOL), but since we haven’t been physically together in over 3 months now, I am super-glad that we both have the ability to just pick up where we left off, like we had never been apart at all. THANK YOU, Lord, for the blessing of a soul mate, my awesome husband!! 😀

James 1:2-12 ERV

My brothers and sisters, you will have many kinds of trouble. But this gives you a reason to be very happy. 
You know that when your faith is tested, you learn to be patient in suffering. 
If you let that patience work in you, the end result will be good. You will be mature and complete. You will be all that God wants you to be. 

Do any of you need wisdom? Ask God for it. He is generous and enjoys giving to everyone. So he will give you wisdom. 
But when you ask God, you must believe. Don’t doubt him. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is blown up and down by the wind. 
People like that are thinking two different things at the same time. They can never decide what to do. So they should not think they will receive anything from the Lord. 
Believers who are poor should be glad that God considers them so important. 
Believers who are rich should be glad when bad things happen that humble them. Their riches won’t keep them from disappearing as quickly as wildflowers. 
As the sun rises and gets hotter, its heat dries up the plants, and the flowers fall off. The flowers that were so beautiful are now dead. That’s how it is with the rich. While they are still making plans for their business, they will die. 
Great blessings belong to those who are tempted and remain faithful! After they have proved their faith, God will give them the reward of eternal life. God promised this to all people who love him.
