It is the beginning of a new week and I want to take time at the start of the week to be grateful for all your promises keep. I know life can be hard. Life can be filled with disappointment and pain. The pain is almost to grueling to breathe. Sometimes my enemies stand over me and laugh. No matter what my situation God You know where I am. You Lord know my needs and aware of my shortcomings. Whatever I am going through I know can trust you. King David as he was being pursued by his enemies wrote in Psalm 54:
God! Save me by your name;
defend me by your might!
2 God! Hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth!
The proud have come up against me;
violent people want me dead.
They pay no attention to God. Selah
4 But look here: God is my helper;
my Lord sustains my life.
5 He will bring disaster on my opponents.
By your faithfulness, God, destroy them!
6 I will sacrifice to you freely;
I will give thanks to your name, Lord,
because it’s so good,
7 and because God has delivered me
from every distress.
My eyes have seen my enemies’ defeat.
Lord help me let go of all things beyond my control and to be honest most things are beyond my control. Let me awake each day with a heart filled with gratitude, for the promise you kept in sending Jesus Christ as my Lord and My Savior. In His Name pray. Amen.
Valuing quiet and solitude in academe.

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!" -John. 14:12-14
