Good morning, Father.
Thank you for helping me through the last couple very difficult days. Thank you for restoring to me some hope, and a more stable platform to stand upon. Thank you for my work, which can distract me from the changes occurring around me. Please help me to find a good balance between work and play, input and output, exercise and sitting still. Once again I ask you to help me build a better income, so that I can break free of this crippling poverty. My only longterm plan is to purchase a mixed-use building in West Michigan between Grand Rapids and Lake Michigan — somewhere with a lot of foot traffic. You see all that I HOPE to do, interacting with a community and helping people of all ages overcome stress and boredom through art, music, dance, and nature exploration — perhaps even through exploring subjects and topics that interest them on an individual basis (which is the longterm goal for this website). I have ideas of how to build a big enough income to support this longterm goal… but it is only YOU who makes it possible, Lord. I will content myself with your will for me, but I do hope it includes greater freedom and independence SOON, lol. Instead of having to get a ride from someone every time, I want to be in a position to GIVE rides to people. Instead of having all my best art supplies — and an entire library of books — in storage over an hour away, I want to have a stable place where I can lend books and supplies to others. I look forward to growing my site, my income, and my resources in order to get closer to that dream, Lord… even if it turns out completely different than how I envision it. I choose YOUR will for me, Lord. I trust you completely. Thank you for giving me something to strive toward, instead of just feeling lost and afraid. THANK YOU, faithful Shepherd. Lead on!
