Hello, Father. Lord, I feel useless, worthless, a failure. I cannot provide for my children, was not able to rise above the damaging effects of a torturous childhood to become a “success” enough to be financially stable and supportive of my family. This is one of those days when I wonder WHY oh WHY you […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for HOPE that I might be able to spend some time at the library today, practicing PHP and a few different Adobe CC applications. Lord, I want to just hide inside you today. Life seems too harsh and cold otherwise. Thank you for the kindness and cheerfulness of a few […]

Hello, Father! Thank you so much for being so near, such a comfort and encouragement to me! Thank you for helping me stay so calm, just letting other’s anger pass right over me. Thank you for always providing me with a sweet spot, a place with shade and even a pleasant breeze, even when there […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for clean clothes — one of my favorite luxuries now!! I used to do laundry practically every day, and I never wore the same clothes or used the same towel or washrag twice before washing them, but now that I am homeless and do not own a washer or dryer, every […]

Lord, I am pretty frustrated this morning. I feel a bit embarassed, even ashamed, that we have not made more progress in the last 3 or 4 weeks. Although I had no concrete expectations back in March or April when we thought we would soon become “homeless nomads”, my subconscious expectation was to at least […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for the kindness and Love of your people. Thank you for the fellowship of your Holy Spirit. Thank you for rest, and play, and hope. Lord, I ask you to help us make some serious progress in the next few days. While I do have my own ideas of how I […]

Hello, Father. Thank you so much for positive conversations, both written and on the phone. Thank you for helping my ears to hear better lately, such a surprise as they usually comprehend very little that is spoken, especially over the phone. I believe you have intervened in this way, helping me to hear and understand […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for new understandings, new insights, new growth. Thank you for adequate health and sleep and nutrition. Father, I still have trouble with my vision and these terrible headaches and crazy hormones. So many old injuries seem to be acting up at once, that it seems quite likely to be an […]

Hello, Father! Thank you, my Shepherd, for answered prayer. Sometimes we pray particularly for one thing with our mind and tongue, and yet you bless us with something that is even closer to our hearts, something we perhaps did not pray in words but within our heart’s desire. Or there might be a desire that […]

Hello, Lord! Thank you for the awesome restoration of peace and hope! Although we are no closer to getting our camper rebuilt so that we have a place to sleep, and although I am a little bit disappointed at the lack of response from all the emails I sent out yesterday, I am very grateful […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your merciful presence in my life. Thank you for touching me with CALM this morning, bringing me a distance away from my multiple troubles and concerns and just letting me rest in you right now. Father, you see all that is in me and of me and before me. […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for getting me through such a difficult day yesterday. Thank you for all the prayers of your people, which I am certain played a role in the peace restored between my husband and myself this morning, and the Hope of getting help from local agencies today. Please go before us, […]

Lord, this wound seems too great for me, like it will surely swallow me up. Even though I have had very little sleep and have walked all over town today, I somehow doubt I could sleep even now. Sleep where? I have no home. Seems like I had a bit of one, just yesterday. But […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me through so many rough moments, and thank you for teaching me more and more how to be a quiet mouse and not HAVE to speak, as well as how to just be in the present moment without having to think about the past or the future. Please […]

Hello, Lord. Thank you for touching me, healing me, growing me. Thank you for resisting my pleas to come Home, so that I can continue to serve you in the days ahead. Please help me to find joy again, to see beyond the difficulties of life. Thank you for the written word, and thank you […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for your awesome merciful restoration! Thank you for pulling through for us in so many small but miraculous ways! Thank you for making me able to remain faithful during some very difficult situations — that gives me such joy! It is such a delight to know that you are working away […]

Lord, as you know, today is the one year anniversary of the passing of my Tiny Friend, my constant companion of 12+ years. I still miss him, but I thank you for all the healing and all the wonderful memories and lessons learned. He will never be forgotten or replaced. Thank you so much for […]

Lord, I have learned sooooooo very much in the last several hours, that I actually fear I won’t remember ANY of it! Most is stuff related to my work — how to do certain things to prepare and process digital files and such, as well as little things to remember when working at libraries — […]

Lord, this is very difficult. I am not beautiful, not successful, not rich. When I am light and free and there is music, I dance and am the life of the party. I don’t even need a buzz, as I haven’t had a drop of alcohol in over 9 months. But on a daily basis, […]

Oh, Lord, I am sooooooo in love with this library, I want to come here every day for at least a week or two! Since it is open 24 hours, I could almost LIVE here, lol. Father, I thank you for this awesome restoration of my hope and my introverted intellectual bliss! Please help me […]
