"abide in me as I abide in you..." John 15:4
I could use everyone's prayers today. I am going to confront the issue within our home group tonight that I'm not looking forward to, but must be done. Please pray for courage, strength, and consise words that will be effective to the end God desires. Thanks.
Praying for both of you.I spent time sitting in Psalm 46 today. God is my refuge and strength! It was a great reminder of God being in control of the Earth....not just me or my family or my neighbors....but the whole Earth. Also, what do I need to do? Be still and know that He is God! I needed Him to be my fortress today.
Hey Friends! I did the BCP morning office & Jesus Prayers yesterday and today both. Also had a great time with the lectio in staff meeting. We do our first blitz group tonight, but I'm doing my vespers before I get home.peace,-t
Hey Friends!I did the Morning Office from the BCP this morning. I'm planning on Midday prayers right before lunch.Here is the prayer of self-dedication from today's liturgy:Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly yours, utterly dedicated unto you; and then use us, we pray you, as you will, and always to your glory and the welfare of your people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
Yesterday I actually did 3 of the 4 offices. I was really tired and cranky, it was sort of a bad day for me in energy and passion. I just hadn't gotten enough sleep & was a bear. But doing the prayer liturgy and readings morning noon and night helped to keep me centered. Even though it was a hard day, I feel like it was a day spent, mostly at least, in the presence of God. That feels like a good thing to me.I started with the BCP hours this morning - I'm hoping to at least get 3/4 today!!Peace,-t
Went through a few psalms today. I wanted to honor the families that were left behind on Sept 11th and prayed for them today. To think, there are a bunch of 7-8 year olds affected by that day. I cried out to God today.
I'm into the story of the Exodus now in the OT and the crucifiction in Mark. Our God saves! I asked God to bring "fresh bread" this morning from these very familiar accounts. He showed me some cool, new things. He's so faithful!
I did the BCP morning office today. I spent some time setting up my iphone so that the sites I use for daily disciplines are all on there. it's going to be nice to have that tool to use.Friday Confessional:I confess to worrying and fretting a lot this week. I really struggled a lot with my own insecurities & I know it’s not from God but still I entertained those thoughts.I confess to staying up too late to watch movies or news when I really wasn’t that interested in either. Because of that lack of discipline I struggled to stay productive a couple of afternoons this week.I confess to still struggling with making myself read. I guess I’ll be “easing in” to this semester. I confess to a lack of patience and understanding this week.
