Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for keeping my tiny dog alive and somewhat happy for yet another day! And this morning, he seems much more chipper, despite the fact that he still is not eating much. Thank you for his indominable spirit, Lord! Thank you also for guiding the whole day yesterday, with my husband’s work and all the way through my daughter’s graduation. Please go before us today, and let your will be done. Let the doctor see and hear and understand what he or she needs to, in order to help my daughter through the DARS program and beyond. Thank you, Lord, for caring for her just as you do me. You’re an awesome Shepherd, thank you so much!! 😀
Revelations 7:9-17 ERV
Then I looked, and there was a large crowd of people. There were so many people that no one could count them all. They were from every nation, tribe, race of people, and language of the earth. They were standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They all wore white robes and had palm branches in their hands.
They shouted loudly, “Victory belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
The elders and the four living beings were there. All the angels were standing around them and the throne. The angels bowed down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God.
They said, “Amen! Praise, glory, wisdom, thanks, honor, power, and strength belong to our God forever and ever. Amen!”
Then one of the elders asked me, “Who are these people in white robes? Where did they come from?”
I answered, “You know who they are, sir.” And the elder said, “These are the ones who have come out of the great suffering. They have washed their robes with the blood of the Lamb, and they are clean and white.
So now these people are before the throne of God. They worship God day and night in his temple. And the one who sits on the throne will protect them.
They will never be hungry again. They will never be thirsty again. The sun will not hurt them. No heat will burn them.
The Lamb in front of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to springs of water that give life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Lord, please teach me how to praise you and give you honor in my life. Show me the path you have laid for my feet, and give me the courage and humility to walk it. Father, I ask that you bless the coming weeks, guiding me to devote time where I ought, according to your desire and purpose for me. There are many projects I COULD work on, and some that I strongly desire to, but in most I lack a solid plan and in all I lack clarity, focus, loyalty to a cause. Teach me, Lord, and show me what YOU want me to do. Let it be a guidepost to me, to order my time and my energy. Thank you, Faithful Friend!!
