Good morning, Faithful One! Thank you for protecting my heart in so many ways, so that when betrayal strikes, it does not destroy me. Thank you for helping me by infusing me with your strength, not having to count on my own. Thank you for teaching me so many valuable lessons already this day that […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for your patient care. Thank you for helping me through the panic attacks this morning, for enabling me to just get up and take a shower and let you protect me. Thank you that I will not ALWAYS be helpless before my own changing hormones, that some day […]

Oct 26

Good morning, Lord. I thank you for this most awesome weather we’ve been having lately! Thank you for being with me during the night, when I really needed a friend, a companion, and someone to help me stay calm and see the bigger picture. Thank you for reminding me of all the notes I have […]

Sep 5

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the very deep, deep sleep lately. It is amazing how long and deep I’ve slept these last couple nights. I don’t know if I am fighting off something like a cold (I AM a bit stuffy), or if pushing myself to finish the next set of Spanish Trading Cards […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for giving my husband time to vent while still making it short enough that my ears did not get overwhelmed. Please be with him today, and move him forward in your plan for his life. Bring him very close to you and reveal to him whatever he needs to see, […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for getting me up before the sun and going for a three-mile walk! Thank you for the breeze, the pinky sunrise, the birds, and all those crazy Canadian geese! Thank you for making it so that I was back home for my husband to vent to about his work, and […]

Aug 11

Good morning, Father. I really don’t know how I am going to make it through this day — or even the next few months — but I know that the ONLY way to do it is to hang on tight to YOU! I’m tired, Lord. I want to go back to being oblivious, NOT knowing […]

Aug 10

Lord, I really feel like I can’t take any more. I give you my heart, my broken, abused heart, and ask you to keep it safe in your hands until I can make it OUT of this sad place of despair and feeling trapped and so very low. If I can just be alone, in […]

Aug 2

Hello, Father! Thank you for making me more stable, when I most need it! Thank you for giving my husband and I time to talk, and I ask that you give us time to listen to that audiobook together — soon! Please do not let the enemy steal that away, Lord. Please protect my husband’s […]

Jul 1

Good morning, Father. Thank you for this beautiful morning, giving me opportunities to serve you and to grow! I give this day to you, my Shepherd, and ask you to lead me in it. Show me what YOU desire for me to do, and help me to be humble and faithful and follow you like […]

Jun 25

Hello, God. I feel really BROKEN today. Almost lifeless, empty, stuck in something that I cannot even SEE. I give myself to you, Lord. I ask you to help me, and I KNOW that you will, because you are Faithful. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, if this is part of mourning, part of […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for being near me, directing me, showing me that I am not to add things to myself, but allow you to do so. If I pick something up and expect myself to carry it, I may fall or just not be able to carry the things YOU want me to. […]

Jun 18

Good morning, Father. In some way, I feel like I have betrayed my Tiny Friend, for I have made it past the two things that were holding me to him. I took down his outdoor pen and mowed in the front yard, and I took a shower and (what feels like) washed him all off […]

May 9

Good morning, Father! Thank you for getting me up bright and early — it is AWESOME to have energy in the morning again…! Thank you for continuing the healing of my body, and the strengthening of my mind and heart. Please continue to teach me, guide me, care for me — as I know you […]

April 1

Good morning, Father! Thank you for bringing me safely into this new season of my life where I have no car and thus must enjoy a daily walk to the grocery store to try to keep up with carrying home our needs! Thank you for the opportunity to turn a new page in my calendar, […]

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 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 […]

Feb 11

Good morning, Father! Thank you for holding me this morning, preparing me, comforting me, healing me. Thank you for taking such awesome care of my husband, keeping him busy and hopeful during this time of could-be upheaval. It is such an encouraging witness to myself and to my daughter to see how far you’ve brought […]

Jan 17

Hello, Father. I am sorry that sometimes I grieve your heart, taking things into my own hands instead of doing it your way, keeping my eyes and heart on YOU. Please help me to choose you much more often, and to grow in wisdom and faithfulness.

Jan 15

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for your patience (again)! I feel like I am stumbling along, making good progress in some things, while experiencing ongoing failure in others. Truth is, I never really know how I am doing — income is the only real feedback I ever get, and that is pretty low […]
