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.
Thank you for helping me select a new web host, and please help me in the coming weeks and months, as I slowly migrate all twenty-plus websites, rebuilding each one using Elementor and Pods. Give me wisdom, patience with the process, and patience with other people as I am constantly interrupted in my work, to be a servant and helper and wife and basic human with annoying needs of my own, lol.

 
James 3:13-18 ERV

Are there any among you who are really wise and understanding? Then you should show your wisdom by living right. You should do what is good with humility. A wise person does not boast. 
If you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to boast. Your boasting is a lie that hides the truth. 
That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil. 
Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there will be confusion and every kind of evil. 
But the wisdom that comes from God is like this: First, it is pure. It is also peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help people who have trouble and to do good for others. This wisdom is always fair and honest. 
People who work for peace in a peaceful way get the blessings that come from right living. 

 
Lord, please help me be humble and patient and CALM. Help me to listen lovingly to others, and help me to even be patient with my own body and its needs, stopping to exercise and get outside and walk, take showers and eat well, and even to just STOP working and give my brain some downtime and SLEEP! THANK YOU for protecting me (for the most part) from frivolous requests by people, to do “monkey work” like cleaning and such… as I already have enough seemingly frivolous jobs to do that demand a little bit more competence — like resizing and organizing 13,000 photos on a disk, and listing items for sale on Craigslist. Sometimes I do wish there were several of me, Lord — so I could wear a couple of these “hats” at a time, lol. THANK YOU for making me just how I am, Father… I would rather have my head spinning with the challenge of working on many projects at once, learning soooooo much as I go… being a producer of content, not just a consumer of it. I have no real complaints, and I hereby hand over all my concerns to you. I trust you completely, faithful Shepherd. Amen. 😀
