I shall yet learn, and grow beyond the immaturity of adulthood. I shall again laugh, and learn the wisdom of a child.

Good morning, Father.
Once again, I feel like a wounded soldier, making my way HOME to my Creator, my King, my Shepherd — for healing and sustenance. THANK YOU for teaching me, over and over, that you are ALL that I need. Please give me patience with the process of letting GO of my foolish human ideals and expectations and distractions. Thank you for continuing your work in me, and making the process as pain-free as possible, always giving me SOMETHING to hold onto, reminding me to return to your Word and allow it to encourage me and guide me. Thank you for refining me, burning away things I do not need, that only serve to weigh me down without real benefit. I feel my spirit and soul getting leaner and more fit all the time, Lord. I ask you to help me do the same with my body. Show me how I can lay myself aside today, to help others who need your Love just as much as I do. Thank you for giving me all that I need, every step of every day.
Amen. 🙂

Hebrews 10:23-31 ERV

We must hold on to the hope we have, never hesitating to tell people about it. We can trust God to do what he promised. 
We should think about each other to see how we can encourage each other to show love and do good works. 
We must not quit meeting together, as some are doing. No, we need to keep on encouraging each other. This becomes more and more important as you see the Day getting closer. 
If we decide to continue sinning after we have learned the truth, then there is no other sacrifice that will take away sins. 
If we continue sinning, all that is left for us is a fearful time of waiting for the judgment and the angry fire that will destroy those who live against God. 
Whoever refused to obey the Law of Moses was found guilty from the testimony given by two or three witnesses. Such people were not forgiven. They were killed. 
So think how much more punishment people deserve who show their hate for the Son of God—people who show they have no respect for the blood sacrifice that began the new agreement and once made them holy or who insult the Spirit of God’s grace. 
We know that God said, “I will punish people for the wrongs they do; I will repay them.” And he also said, “The Lord will judge his people.” 
It is a terrible thing to face punishment from the living God.
