Lord, I am so confused and frustrated by a certain situation in my life. Help me to not concentrate on that situation and it’s circumstances. Thank you for the glimmer of a solution you showed me last evening. Thank you for the peace I felt. Lord, I am thankful in so many ways. I know you are able. Please help me to focus on you, your endless blessings, your faithfulness. I don’t know or understand but you do.
“My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.”
