Sweet Jesus, I’m thinking about my Lent sacrifices again.  And thinking about them is all I seem to be doing.  In past years I’ve stuck to my sacrifices, but I’m struggling this year.  I think perhaps I decided what to sacrifice instead of allowing You to let me know what would honor You best.  Thank […]

Prayer for April 7, 2017

Lord, sometimes I wonder if it’s worth it.  The “it” to which I refer changes moment by moment, but even with my ever revolving door of “it”s, I wonder.  I know it’s worth it, whatever and whenever the it is, if it brings You glory.  If it helps my family.  If it encourages someone.  If […]
