Dear Ones, we all have thoughts stirring swirling sometimes sinking us. Sometimes it feels Psalm 69:2 as thigh we cannot get a foothold. Deep waters with no way to stand firm. Worn out. This psalm starts out stinging and ends up stunning. For God is always at work in our footholds.

My Dear Children, I fainted tonight. Not sure why. 4th episode. Facing the unknown. May we always turn to God in whatever happens and not huff away on our own. "Whatever comes, I will cry to You, O God." Not. I will blame You. Not. I will walk away from You. Not. I will fall out with You. From the end of the earth, from the most remote corner of the country, I will cry to You in the midst of affliction, O God! Psalm 61:2. I won't stop. I won't let go until You bless us. All of us, O God!

Dear Children, Praying for each of us for grace to never let go of God and fall forward. It took David 9 months of living apart. David's folly with his neighbor opened up the dam within him and he murdered her husband. Unthinkable. We are all standing on the brink of our lives. May we pray and never let go of the grace of God.

Dear Kids, Every single night of our lives, God closes the window on our stories. No choice about that. And if we hold a prayerful heart, a trusting longing, He will take hold of the reins of our heart. By the night seasons, His reins will instruct me. His reins will give me understanding of my affections and feelings. That I may find God when I awake!

Dear Ones, David's own son coveted the chair that belonged to King David. He wanted it more than he wanted his dad to live. In times of trouble, David turned to the Lord. His shield about him. The lifter of his head. In just a little while, you will lay down and sleep. You will awake because the Lord will keep you alive. I lay down and slept. From my son; from any enemy familiar or foe. And if I awake, know this. It is the Lord Who keeps you alive.
