Thank you so much for giving me my oldest son, who gave me purpose in life 27 years ago today when I had him — and even before that, before he was born. Thank you for touching his life and heart, giving him a desire to know you, and thank you for answering our prayers and leading him to a new job and new apartment on his own. Please bless this coming year of his life, all the transitions, all the ups and downs. Let him climb to new heights of growth this year, Lord. Let your will be done in his life, and make him grow more and more closer to you and toward your purpose and desire for him. Amen!
I Timothy 4:12-16 ERV
You are young, but don’t let anyone treat you as if you are not important. Be an example to show the believers how they should live. Show them by what you say, by the way you live, by your love, by your faith, and by your pure life.
Continue to read the Scriptures to the people, encourage them, and teach them. Do this until I come.
Remember to use the gift you have, which was given to you through a prophecy when the group of elders laid their hands on you.
Continue to do these things. Give your life to doing them. Then everyone can see that your work is progressing.
Be careful in your life and in your teaching. Continue to live and teach rightly. Then you will save yourself and those who listen to your teaching.
Lord, I ask the same thing for both my son and for myself — help us to use what you have given us, teach us how. Father, I ask you to give me some type of confirmation or assurrance on getting help to repair my one website that has been floundering for days now. I thank you for all the help I have already received, and for the new ways I have learned to make some changes I have desired for a very long time now. I think I feel you guiding me to get this help, but I want to be sure. Give me a sign, or some reassurance in my heart, and please be with the people who would be working on it, help them find and repair this problem. This was my first website, now only one of over a dozen. But from the start of my new beginning in 2012, this website has given me problems. I probably should not have paid money to buy a professional theme, for it seems to have infiltrated the site and made me unable to fix it — unable to even LIKE it, for the last 3 years or so. I think it is time to get it FIXED, Lord, and I ask you to make it happen. I may allow other hands and minds to touch it, but I know it is YOU, Lord, who will actually heal it. Thank you, Father.
