Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank You for Your compassion, understanding our weaknesses, and Your patience with us. It makes me think about my lack of compassion sometimes, my failure even to attempt to understand someone’s weakness and enter that into the situation, even sometimes for myself. It makes me feel bad comparing Your patience with the lack of mine, even with the people I know that have great patience cannot come close to Yours. I know of no one willing to wait 40 to 60 years on someone. After a few hours, we have given up way too often. Thank You, Jesus, for being our Advocate, our Perfect example, our cheerleader, our Rescuer. Thank You for not giving up, for keeping trying to reach our hardened hearts, our closed minds, our blind eyes, our deaf ear. May You help us remember how long You work with us, that we may try to endure that long for someone else. May You guide us with each person in working with them and not turn our backs on them. Thank You, Lord, for Your love, Your perfect love. May it encourage us to love each other more as You love us. May we encourage one another. May we accept their faults as we expect them to overlook ours. May we be quick to forgive and ask for forgiveness than we ever have. May we tell someone how much our Jesus has done for us today, tomorrow, and the next day….I ask according to Your will and plans. In Your precious and holy name Christ Jesus, amen.🙏
Lift Your Heart To God!
