Good morning, Father.
Thank you for your diligent care, helping me shop yesterday — possibly the last time for weeks to come — without getting tooooo frazzled and upset. Please help us find a way to get our own vehicle back on the road, BEFORE we get desperate for food or supplies or laundry! Lord, it is very hard for me to tell how much of this emotional turmoil I feel off-and-on is due to my hormones causing an overreaction. I know there are justifiable reasons for being upset and frazzled, but I am choosing to just not try to figure ANY of it out and instead just give it all to you, trusting you to take care of us and provide for us, giving us the courage and wisdom and humility we need to do whatever YOU want us to do. Help me let GO of all the negativity and weight, Lord, and just be FREE to do whatever YOU want me to do! Help me to support and help my Mate without taking on any of his weight, his own emotional turmoil that he vents to me. We need YOU to carry it, Lord — it is too much for either of us. THANK YOU for moving our hearts in the direction of our own freedom, in the direction of your will for us, and THANK YOU for guiding us, nurturing us, rescuing us. Amen. I trust you completely, faithful Shepherd. Help me to always act according to THAT.

Psalm 118:4-9, 14-17 ERV

You people worshiping the LORD, say it: “His faithful love will last forever!” 
I was in trouble, so I called to the LORD for help. The LORD answered and made me free. 
The LORD is with me, so I will not be afraid. No one on earth can do anything to harm me. 

The LORD is my helper. I will see my enemies defeated. 
It is better to trust in the LORD than to trust in people. 
It is better to trust in the LORD than to trust in great leaders.
The LORD is my strength and my reason for singing. He saved me! 
You can hear the victory celebration in the homes of those who live right. The LORD has shown his great power again! 
The LORD’S arm is raised in victory. The LORD has shown his great power again. 
I will live and not die, and I will tell what the LORD has done.
