Exercise

Dear God,

A friend has been telling me that I need more variety in my life.  In this pandemic she has noticed that I am in a routine, and she thinks I need to jostle it.  So this morning I walked a while for exercise, something that is out of my routine.  And I do feel quite invigorated.

You must tell me what to do, because I depend on You more than friends.  Your way will work.  Your way knows me very well, and I trust You to see me through to a happier time.

Thank You for giving me the assurance that following You is the only way to live.

Amen.

To Live

Dear God,

I think we come to this world to discover how to live.  We make a contract with You, and then we endeavor to carry it out.  If temptations derail us, we are not making good headway.  But always, always, our faith in You takes us along for a better ride.

I ask for a deeper faith this morning, a soul – inspired faith that all will be well when I stay close to You.

Be with me as I seek to carry out the purposes of my life.

Amen.

Forgiveness

Dear God,

A dream last night pointed out an unforgiveness in me.  I have written about the underlying message of the dream.  And maybe, just maybe, I have forgiven—because I think I understand.  And forgiveness comes before understanding and leads to it.

Thank You for speaking to me in a dream.  I understand from the Bible that dreams are a prime way that You get our attention.  Thank You.

Amen.
