Mar 31

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for the delightful, timely surprise of money borrowed from kindhearted people who love you! I am so much relieved to know that we will not be kicked out of our home and that my daughter can continue going to school, graduating here in two months’ time. Thank you […]

Mar 30

Hi, God. Thank you for being here. Thank you for letting my oldest son email me, so I could tell someone about the trauma of last night. Thank you for helping me paint out my feelings early this morning. That relieved some of the pressure, and gave me a little more hope. Father, please protect […]

Mar 29

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me get up before dawn this morning and get out there and get the back yard mowed — before the neighbor let their dog out! Thank you for showing me, reassuring me that it is NOT me, for I have never hated an animal, but that black lab’s […]

Mar 28

Good morning, God. I don’t feel so good today. I’m sorry, but I am feeling pretty lousy, inside and out. Feel like worthless Garbage People, too low to lift my eyes to you. Full of shame, self-loathing, lacking hope. I’m sure you are still with me just as much as ever, so I am just […]

Mar 27

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for using this day to turn so many eyes toward you and what you did on the cross for us, then rose again, triumphant! I believe you can have many triumphs in my own personal life, too. I believe you can heal this pain in my heart and not let […]

Mar 26

Lord, may I tell you what hurts, even though I know you already know? It grieves me to see my husband turn away from your truth, shut up his mouth, set his mind to not mention our faith in you to anyone again, because of our landlord, who claims to be a “Christian”. Lord, it […]

Mar 25

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for taking care of us. This morning I am pretty numb, feel a bit disconnected, zombie-ish. But that is better, I am sure, than being in a panic over the eviction notice we received yesterday. Lord, you see my heart, how I am still trusting you, knowing that you rather […]

Mar 24

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for the awesome, loooong phone conversation with my air force son last night! That really made my week, cheered me up and gave me mental energy from having less emotional baggage. It is so good to know that he is doing well and sounding so much more relaxed […]

Mar 23

Good morning, Father. Please cleanse my heart, so it is not broken into many unusable pieces under this weight I feel. Help me to lift it to you, gift it to you, and leave it with you. Life is too big for me right now, and I’ve sunk into survival mode, hanging by a thread […]

Mar 22

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for the awesomeness of your care! We may not have any money at all, but we have YOU, and that is ENOUGH. I have joy in my heart, and I rejoice in how resilient you have made it…! For even when I went to Walmart to spend my […]

Mar 21

Good morning, Shepherd. I am hanging on for dear life, and so is my husband. We are trusting you, Lord. Please come through for us, be our hero, meet our needs. As far as we know, we have done everything you asked of us. I remember nothing you have asked me to repent of that […]

Mar 20

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for providing the tool my husband needed at a good price, so he can continue to do his job. Lord, I ask you to please put your own special pressure on the owners of the company my husband worked for, to convince them to pay him the $2000 […]

Mar 19

Good morning, Father. Thank you so much for giving me a new project to work on today. Please help me to be faithful and not to think it to death…! Help me to just do what you have given me, and leave the fine details for the end. Thank you also for my little breakthrough […]

Mar 18

Good morning, Lord. I am still very low on hope, and frustrated with myself and with life. But I do not wish to dwell on that. I wish instead to just hand all that over to you, and trust you, and keep looking to you. I know you will provide everything I actually need, even […]

Mar 17

Good morning, Lord. I feel restless this morning, not very settled, like I want to GO somewhere, preferably get to moving OUT of this house! But there’s no money, no way to even put my best things in storage. And now, for the first time in many years, I am facing not even having a […]

Mar 16

Good morning, God. Please, please take care of me and my Little Ones today. I feel afraid, shaky, unstable. Help me to be brave and face what needs to be done. Let me do it in stages, if that will help. And when it is over, please let me relax and do some art or […]

Mar 15

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for this early start to my day, and thank you for the nice nature-time and art-making time yesterday! Please continue to guide my path and give me things to encourage and strengthen me along the way. Lord, I pray that you draw very near to my husband today, […]

Mar 14

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for helping me complete the first major step in the new work you have given me! I put the whole thing into your hands, where it will be safe. You have prepared the ground faithfully over the years, churning up the soil of my heart with healing and […]

Mar 13

Good morning, Father! Thank you for getting me through that awful sickness last night, and for encouraging me to get up and shower early on this morning, washing away all those germs and starting fresh…! Lord, I give you this day, my will, my heart, my hands, my mind. Let me create for YOU today, […]

Mar 12

Good morning, Father! Thank you for getting me up bright and early on this Sabbath morning. Thank you so much for giving me hope again, a purpose, a goal, some way to make my time and skills and talents more valuable, more helpful to others. Thank you for lighting a fire inside me, a fervency, […]
