Hello, Father. Thank you so much for healing and hope. Thank you for ALL your awesome mercies, Lord! I would so much rather be broke and homeless and relying upon you for every tiny little thing, than to think myself secure due to my position, my income, my connections, or even my own “goodness”. I […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for all the fellowship and growth, and thank you for taking care of us. Please intervene to make your will be done in our lives, and please guide us in following you. Amen.

  James 1:2-6 ERV

My brothers and sisters, you will have many kinds of trouble. But this gives […]

Lord, the sun is not up, yet I am up, hurting and too lonely to sleep. Father, I ask you to help me be humble, and not take my pain out on anyone around me — including myself! Oh faithful Shepherd, I lift my heart to you and ask you to comfort me in my […]

Father, I feel lost and alone and wounded today. Please help me to give you these burdens, instead of foolishly thinking I must carry them by myself. Please comfort and strengthen my heart, and help me to accept your peace and joy. Thank you, faithful Shepherd.

  2 Corinthians 1:3-5 ERV

Praise be to the […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for these last two extremely productive days, and thank you for giving me work to do to keep me sane and hopeful! Thank you for waking me up today with a fire under my feet, motivated to put up a Craigslist ad and notices on Facebook, to try to basically […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for protecting and caring for myself and my loved ones. Thank you for helping me be calm and hopeful, and thank you for the super-productive day yesterday! Thank you for making my body strong enough to walk an hour and carry back groceries, day after day, week after week, month […]

Feb 15

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for growing me past that horrible, difficult day of despair yesterday. Thank you for healing my husband and bringing out the sunshine, so it will be a bit warmer in this house today — physically and emotionally, lol. Father, I thank you for making me unable to give up or […]

Feb 14

Good morning, Father. I thank you that life is full of ups and downs, so that when we have down times, we can feel pretty certain that they will not last. I thank you for teaching me about yourself and your own struggles, and I ask you to help my heart and mind and body […]

Feb 13

Hello, Father. Thank you so much for gently leading me through the day yesterday, and all these last few weeks that have been so challenging on so many levels. I think if I ever have only ONE major life struggle to endure at once, I may feel like I’m getting spoiled rotten, lol! But in […]

Feb 12

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for all your patience with us crazy humans and all our problems. Thank you for having an interest in us, even as individuals! Thank you for the deer in the forest that I know are still there, waiting to be encountered some day when I make it back to the […]

Feb 11

Hello again, Father. Thank you for making me flexible, joyous, and willing. Thank you for giving me a greater cause to fight for in this life, beyond the triviality of wealth or status. Thank you for giving me a mate and awesome children, all of whom have an appreciation for authenticity and artistry. Thank you […]

Feb 10

Hello, Father. Thank you for caring for myself and my family. Thank you so much for each and every one of the noble hearts that rose up to help in whatever little way they could, this last month or so. Please help us in the coming weeks to sell practically everything we own, and move […]

Feb 9

Hello, Father. Thank you for teaching me, molding me, forming me into a vessel that can better be used by you. Thank you for showing me my areas of resistance and decay, things that need to be handed over to you in order to be restructured according to your plan. Father, please help me to […]

Feb 8

Father, please help me let go of all expectation to hold onto anything, for any length of time. Help me to keep always in mind that NO human DESERVES anything from God, but that all we have is due to your mercy alone. I have asked you to protect my heart from bitterness, and you […]

Feb 7

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the progress you made in building me, these last 24 hours or so, even if I only slept about 4 of those hours, lol. Please strengthen my body to walk up over the hill and over to the other side of town to get what my husband feels he […]

Feb 6

Father, please help me through this time. I feel out of control, I guess from the hormones, I don’t know. I cannot think straight, cannot see well, barely even know my own name, it seems. I could describe this crazy sensation a thousand different ways, but it seems best to just keep quiet, and let […]

Feb 5

Hello, Father. Thank you for humbling me, showing me plainly that I am completely dependent upon you for everything. My contact lens experiment completely failed, and it has joined the ranks of what seems like everything else in my life that is just barely tolerable, without any real chance to improve it. I just have […]

Feb 4

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your awesome care, keeping us safe and in good health. Thank you for giving us enough wood to heat part of the house up a bit, so we do not get too cold and discouraged. Please guide us each step of the way, Father. None of us know what […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for the tender sweet care this morning, keeping me snug in bed while the fire got going and the house got warmer. Thank you for teaching me, guiding me, carrying me through these difficult days. Thank you for the coming warmer weather, and thank you for my space heaters and my […]

Feb 2

Good morning, Father. Thank you so much for taking care of me while I go through this hormone stuff again — AND everything else, like no heat and confusing computer stuff! Thank you for the joy that still lives in my heart and how I get all excited about certain “little things”. It surprises me […]
