Hi God, it's me again. You know how sometimes I'm a bit overwhelmed with all this? Well, I want to make sure I don't lose sight of You. I hate the defeated feeling I get when I can't conquer this battle with a total victory. But victory to me and victory to You may look totally different.
I read to be joyful in all circumstances, but our circumstances suck right now. Yet to spend too much time in negativity denies me precious moments. I'm going to hate looking back on this season and seeing clearly that a different attitude could have resulted in different memories. So I rejoice in what I have, and I do have so much. In thankfulness, our dilemma seems to lose its power to drag me down.
God, I treasure the time I spend with You each morning preparing myself mentally and spiritually for the day. In that quietness I hear You more clearly. You know exactly what the day will bring and have arranged the events for me. All I have to do is relax and let your presence bring peace to me.
