Ebbs and flows once again

After a turbulent weekend, things seem to be settling down in Nanakrom and this morning I have surprisingly managed to get a few important things done. I can only say, " Thank You, Lord; thank You, Father. It is only by Your grace."
Hope the day continues in like vein so I can tick things off the very long list.
Lord, thank You for another day and thank You that even when things go down, with You there is always an up to look forward to.
Thank You, Jesus, Amen.

A mixed sort of day

It has been a mixed kind of day today; feeling some discomfort with a stiff neck, feeling slightly overwhelmed by certain things I need to do,happy to receive my books from a Ghanaian author today, grateful to have the opportunity to teach a friend's daughter today and also grateful for an early morning chat to the same writer mentioned a few lines above, who is ahead of me in the publishing game. Lots to be thankful for, even with my subdued emotions, especially since I believe I was sent an angel to cheer me up today.

Sometimes, Father it feels like nothing is happening and there is no movement and life is still but I know better now not to be deceived into that state. I know You love me always and You have my back and that things are working out for my good according to the Lord's purpose.
Lord, thank You for today and thank You for Your grace and Your kindness.
I need wisdom for the days ahead, Amen.

Discerning heart

Lord, I thank You for Your grace and for Your mercy and for all that You are. Lord, what do I do? Please teach me to get a heart of wisdom in all ways and all my dealings with Michael and with other people.
Lord, grant me a discerning heart and a praying spirit. Let me seek You always and let me have the strength and the faith and tenacity to hang on. You are doing a new thing in my life and You are my ALL.
My All, my Life, my Love. Lord, You are my All.

Technical guru

These technical things can be quite frustrating; internet, email and the like. Lord, grant wisdom and the know-how or person who can sort things out for me, please.
Thank You, Father. I have prayed in faith.

The favour of God; giving thanks!

I do not have Internet access at home and it has been very hard on my flesh, though it did free me up to tidy up yesterday and also to go to bed early. Just found out today that I can use the laptop at the library so I cannot complain at all. Was hoping to chat to someone in particular but alas he seems otherwise occupied. Ah well, in all things give thanks.

I have been doing my best to practise what Jerry Savelle talks about in terms of asking and thanking God for His favour when I step out. Combining that with giving thanks in all things is sure to bring rich rewards and I believe it is. My brother gave me some money today and I was very grateful indeed.

To many more gifts as I also give what I have to those You lead me to, dear Lord. Please grant me the wisdom to touch the people I work with and also to affect the children I work with, with Your love,the pure and healing love of Jesus.
Lord, thank You for today, Amen.
