Mar 18

Good morning, Lord.
I am still very low on hope, and frustrated with myself and with life. But I do not wish to dwell on that. I wish instead to just hand all that over to you, and trust you, and keep looking to you. I know you will provide everything I actually need, even if that is only Jesus and His strength. Thank you, Lord.

Philippians 3:12-16 ERV

I don’t mean that I am exactly what God wants me to be. I have not yet reached that goal. But I continue trying to reach it and make it mine. That’s what Christ Jesus wants me to do. It is the reason he made me his.
Brothers and sisters, I know that I still have a long way to go. But there is one thing I do: I forget what is in the past and try as hard as I can to reach the goal before me.
I keep running hard toward the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven.
All of us who have grown to be spiritually mature should think this way too. And if there is any of this that you don’t agree with, God will make it clear to you.
But we should continue following the truth we already have.

Lord, I do not know what goal you have for me, other than just to keep on trusting you, and allowing you to heal me and cleanse me and make me more like you. I am so confused as to what you want me to do with my time, in my work, Lord. I know I am confused and distracted by money and income. If I did not have all these doom-filled, hopeless money situations, I may be able to fly up high enough to catch a better glimpse of what it is YOU want me to do. But I also know that I do not actually NEED that. I can trust YOU to see where I am going, and just keep asking you, moment-to-moment, what you would have me to do. I do trust you, Lord. But I still feel like Garbage People, myself. It seems like I am afar away from being anything better than useless white trash. :O<

Please, Lord, help me lift the heavy burden of my weepy heart to you –again. I give you my sorrows. I lay before you my needs and the desires of my heart. I know I can leave them there before you, just walk away, and trust you to be my Shepherd, to take care of me. Thank you, Jesus.

Psalm 123:2 ERV

A slave looks to his master to provide what he needs, and a servant girl depends on the woman she serves. So we depend on the LORD our God, waiting for him to have mercy on us.
