May 10

Good morning, Father.
Thank you for the progress I’ve been able to make on the new website these last few days. Thank you for helping me endure countless inconveniences and annoyances and discomforts and discouragements, and yet being able to basically keep my mouth shut and my brain turned off, just focusing on the things I CAN change. Lord, I feel rather FLAT right now, not my usual bubbly self — but perhaps that is how I need to be, to work hard and make it through the hot summer. THANK YOU for the little things I can be grateful for, Lord — cool weather, wifi so I can work, downloaded shows that I can take a break and watch and learn, still plenty of food, and a couple articles of clothing that are still clean. Thank you for my ability to invent new layouts and other designs and implementations of designs on my ONE website. Please help all these things to be ENOUGH, and please move my Mate in the direction of his own freedom, and please give him things he can DO, things to accomplish and feel good about. Amen. I still trust you completely, faithful Shepherd.

Revelation 3:7-13 ERV

“Write this to the angel of the church in Philadelphia: “Here is a message from the one who is holy and true, the one who holds the key of David. When he opens something, it cannot be closed. And when he closes something, it cannot be opened. 
“I know what you do. I have put before you an open door that no one can close. I know you are weak, but you have followed my teaching. You were not afraid to speak my name. 
Listen! There is a group that belongs to Satan. They say they are Jews, but they are liars. They are not true Jews. I will make them come before you and bow at your feet. They will know that you are the people I have loved. 
You followed my command to endure patiently. So I will keep you from the time of trouble that will come to the world—a time that will test everyone living on earth. 
“I am coming soon. Hold on to the faith you have, so that no one can take away your crown. 
Those who win the victory will be pillars in the temple of my God. I will make that happen for them. They will never again have to leave God’s temple. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God. That city is the new Jerusalem. It is coming down out of heaven from my God. I will also write my new name on them. 
Everyone who hears this should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. 

Lord, help me to remain faithful to you, no matter how much my body and mind want to rebel. Help me to patiently endure and keep focusing on the things I can change. Help me to live one moment at a time, and each one faithfully. Amen.
