December 31

Today’s prayer:

Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.
Psalms 143:8 NKJV

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for these words. They speak for me today. Lord, as I lay myself, my plans, my desires before You I humbly request that You guide, direct, and provide. I know You will. You always have. Lord, thank You so much for loving me. Thank You for speaking to my heart and teaching me how to find joy in praising You no matter the circumstance. Lord, thank You for the example of Paul and Silas. They were hurt and in prison and they chose to praise You! Please let me and my family always choose to praise You. Thank You for Your faithfulness. Thank You for Your amazing grace and mercy. Lord, this last day of 2020, belongs to You just as every other day does. Please help us to look to You, to trust in You, and to stand in prayer. We love You Jesus. Please continue to save the lost, protect the innocent, provide for the widow and orphan, and return the prodigal. Thank You, Jesus. I praise Your holy name! Amen.

Resting

Yesterday morning, I began the day with an asthma attack.

Although I’m super thankful for my nebulizer, I was sad to have to use it.

It’s been a long time since it’s been needed.

My day, therefore didn’t look like what I had planned.

Jase had to work his school mostly on his own.

Meals were leftovers, reheated.

(Praise God for our microwave and the leftovers!)

My asthma didn’t allow much, but I was glad to be on the couch instead of the bed.

When I got up this morning, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Praise the Lord, I’m breathing pretty well.

I’m still sluggish and slow, but so thankful to God for the ability to do a few little things.

And I’m enjoying the opportunity to pray more.

When my activities slim down, my heart finds it easier to remain in prayer.

So, I’m praising God for His rest.

I hadn’t scheduled it for today or yesterday, but since it’s required why chaff at putting off my own plans?

Instead, I’m embracing God’s.

After all His ways are best.

Isaiah 2:3 NKJV — Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your plans for each day. Lord, I know there is so much sin and wickedness in the world that we can often forget how much good there is as well. After all, You are good and You are far bigger than Your creation. Thank You for holding us in Your hands and walking us forward into Your truths. Lord, please help us to live for You in our actions, our thoughts, and our attitudes. Lord, please let our mouths be full of Your praise, our hearts full of Your love, and our minds full of Your truth. Thank You, Jesus! Amen.
