Lord, you see every inch of this struggle I am living through. You know its history as well as its future. You know how deeply I am hurt, how alone and nearly hopeless in this one thing at this moment. Still, I believe in the healing power of your wings, Lord. I believe in the […]

Good morning, Lord. Father, my heart is really hurting right now. I don’t even understand why I feel like this, where this ache is coming from, why these tears are streaming down my face, why I feel so all alone and broken. I bet you understand, though. I miss the comfort and encouragement of the […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for keeping me alive through everything, Lord. I appreciate having a chance to serve you and to learn more about you and your creation.

Alone, but for God

Father, you alone know the depth of my sorrow this day. You alone see, hear, feel, know my heart. Help me to accept the comfort of knowing that your heart has been where mine is now. YOU can empathize with me, with all that has happened, all that I’ve given, all that’s been lost, and […]

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 […]

Good morning, Lord. Please help my daughter have a good day today, since it is her birthday. Please be with my husband in his work, and please help all of us to not worry too much about the coming possible changes. I give my troubled mind and heart to you, my Lord and Shepherd. Help […]
