Lord Jesus, I truly do not know how to be like you, except to just keep letting all my petty concerns and personal expectations GO, giving those AND my TIME and worries and hopes and dreams… my SELF to you. I keep having this phrase in my head that my brother said recently: “Morality without God”. Too many people seem to try to build their house on the sand, striving to be “good” without having a KING who is good, without having the Holy Spirit of God to MAKE you “good”. I just don’t understand it, Lord. What is the POINT? I only want to be GOOD to please YOU… like a child eagerly awaiting the approval of the beloved Father, hoping to some day hear, “Well done, my GOOD and FAITHFUL servant”. Otherwise, being BAD is more fun… so what do people who do NOT have hope in Jesus wish to build, with their own “goodness”? Lord, I do not NEED to understand it — for which I am grateful. But no matter what, I THANK YOU for helping me to see LOVE in people… regardless of whether that love is based on YOU… or attempting to exist, without you. Is that even possible?
Okay, reader, I THANK YOU for your consistency and your diligence, your faithfulness and your concern for little me. I truly hope this little prayer blog in some small way helps you. :D Here’s a link
to that first little “bit” I wrote. Hopefully tomorrow I can finish up my work with the old Spanish files, in order to make some money to pay my bills. Everything including that and all my other projects, I give into God’s hands for His perfect will and timing to produce through me whatever He wills. So be it. Amen. :wink:
