Good morning, Father.
Thank you so much for giving me a new project to work on today. Please help me to be faithful and not to think it to death…! Help me to just do what you have given me, and leave the fine details for the end. Thank you also for my little breakthrough yesterday, making my camera work so I could take pics of the yellow flowers you gave me special in my yard. Thank you for the encouragement, through your creation!
Psalm 121 ERV
A song for going up to the Temple. I look up to the hills, but where will my help really come from?
My help will come from the LORD, the Creator of heaven and earth.
He will not let you fall. Your Protector will not fall asleep.
Israel’s Protector does not get tired. He never sleeps.
The LORD is your Protector. The LORD stands by your side, shading and protecting you.
The sun cannot harm you during the day, and the moon cannot harm you at night.
The LORD will protect you from every danger. He will protect your soul.
The LORD will protect you as you come and go, both now and forever!
Lord, I thank you for taking care of me, and providing for the needs of my family. Father, you see that I have less money than what I have had in years, not even enough to buy laundry soap and get my $9 prescription filled. This hurts me, shames me, makes me want to give up, throw in the towel, throw the baby out with the bathwater — it all stinks! But Lord, I still have peace. And I still have you, and you still can make a way through this desert. Please help me to not sit down and cry and feel sorry for myself, but rather to push on, doing the little things that you give me to do, building bigger things in stages, for you. Please let my heart be found to be pleasing to you, let me remain faithful and trusting, so that my shame may only go as deep as my pocketbook and not reach my heart or spirit. Thank you, Jesus! 😀
