Jan 26

Good morning, Father!
Thank you for the warmish and sunny day yesterday, and the chance to wander about outside, taking vids and stillshots. Thank you for the tranquil resting spots I found on the rocks, and all the little birds and larger doves that serenaded me while I relaxed and recorded them. Thank you for pleasant hours with my Mate, and please heal his ankle — don’t let his work today make it worse — or — above all, please give him peace and allow YOUR will to be done — for I know how at times you allow our injuries and weaknesses to guide us, your stubborn children, like cattlemen herding bulls by blocking all but a single path, lol.

 
2 Chronicles 30:8 ERV

Don’t be stubborn as your ancestors were. But obey the LORD with a willing heart. Come to the Temple that he has made to be holy forever. Serve the LORD your God. Then his fearful anger will turn away from you. 

 
Psalm 32:8-10 ERV

The Lord says, “I will teach you and guide you in the way you should live. I will watch over you and be your guide. 
Don’t be like a stupid horse or mule that will not come to you unless you put a bit in its mouth and pull it with reins.

Many pains will come to the wicked, but the LORD’S faithful love will surround those who trust in him. 

 
Philippians 2:3-8 ERV

In whatever you do, don’t let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves. 
Don’t be interested only in your own life, but care about the lives of others too. 

In your life together, think the way Christ Jesus thought. 
He was like God in every way, but he did not think that his being equal with God was something to use for his own benefit. 
Instead, he gave up everything, even his place with God. He accepted the role of a servant, appearing in human form. During his life as a man, 
he humbled himself by being fully obedient to God, even when that caused his death—death on a cross. 

 
Lord, I thank you for showing me some ways that I can perhaps help others. I thank you for getting me up early this morning, already having a clear vision of what to do next. I delight in your Hand upon me, and I give you my time, my mind, my energy, my resources, my will. Please continue to guide me, and help me to make decisions that are pleasing to you. Amen. Thank you, Lord Jesus my King! 😀
