Nov 2

Good morning, Lord.
I feel very aggitated again, Father. It seems like I MAY be on the verge of a breakthrough, having found some extremely interesting new tools for building my websites… but right now the options and endless decisions to be made seem overwhelming and even discouraging. I feel irritated, impatient, and a little bit weepy. I want to curl up in a ball and wait until there are fewer Unknowns — and warmer weather! Doors seem to be closing here in Iowa, it is getting colder, hardly supposed to even get up to 50 in the coming days — and RAIN on top of that. It seems impossible to get our last things done here now, and my Mate and I are both feeling quite a bit on edge, tense. Neither one of us wants to be here any longer, just wanting to get back to Texas NOW. But we may have to wait until the middle of the month, when I get enough money to pay for the gas to make the trip. Frustrating. Help me to be patient and TRUST you, Lord!

 
I Timothy 1:19 ERV

Continue to trust in God and do what you know is right. Some people have not done this, and their faith is now in ruins.

 
1 Peter 4:15-19 ERV

You may suffer, but don’t let it be because you murder, steal, make trouble, or try to control other people’s lives. 
But if you suffer because you are a “Christ-follower,” don’t be ashamed. You should praise God for that name. 
It is time for judging to begin. That judging will begin with God’s family. If it begins with us, then what will happen to those who don’t accept the Good News of God? 
“If it is hard for even a good person to be saved, what will happen to the one who is against God and full of sin?” 
So if God wants you to suffer, you should trust your lives to him. He is the one who made you, and you can trust him. So continue to do good. 

 
Father, I put all my worries and concerns in your fully capable Hands. It does no one any good for me to try to figure anything out, and it just creates more tension for me to even THINK about the things I cannot change. I ask you to lead us BOTH to accomplish the things we need to, in your perfect timing. And I ask you to give me peace and the ability to just bury myself in my work and in service to others, concentrating on the things I CAN do, changes I CAN make. Help me to be grateful for what I have, and make the best of what you’ve given me. Help me to be your little Acceptance with Joy. Amen. 🙂
