Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for helping me yesterday and letting me get a good night of sleep last night. Please heal up this crazy dizzy thing I’ve got. It is making it hard to do anything and everything, even to think or to read. I’m glad not to have the bad headaches, and I so appreciate having our rent paid, so I feel happy and grateful overall. My dog is still hanging in there, and I’m not missing having a car too badly. I’m also grateful for the progress on my art-making — thank you, Lord!
Galatians 4:6-9 ERV
Since you are now God’s children, he has sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts. The Spirit cries out, “Abba, Father.”
Now you are not slaves like before. You are God’s children, and you will receive everything he promised his children.
In the past you did not know God. You were slaves to gods that were not real.
But now you know the true God. Really, though, it is God who knows you. So why do you turn back to the same kind of weak and useless rules you followed before? Do you want to be slaves to those things again?
Lord, I thank you for helping me go more than a month now without drinking alcohol for comfort or leisure. Thank you for showing me new ways to comfort myself and have an enjoyable evening, without poisoning my body. Please continue to teach me how to FEED my body better! Please also reveal to me if I am doing anything myself, that is bringing on the headaches and dizziness. Show me how I can take better care of my body, overall. Thank you also for showing me that I do not need to look to anyone else’s assessment of me or my work, that only YOU have a right to judge me. Please continue to grow me in this way, and help me to see more and more clearly what YOU want me to do, and not be distracted by anyone else’s words or behaviors — especially the ones that contradict YOUR judgement, Father. Thank you for making me your workmanship! 😀
