Jesus, be my FIRST Love always

Hello, Father! Thanks for another day in Your presence, another chance to watch You at work in, through, and around me. My hours and days are graciously held in Your sovereign hands. It’s by Your will that I have awakened today, that I have embarked on another day’s agenda.
“ANYONE, THEN, WHO KNOWS THE GOOD HE OUGHT TO DO AND DOESN’T DO IT SINS.” (v 17 NIV) Shape my will so that I respond in obedience to what You reveal to me to do. I desire to be a willing vessel in Your hands.
In verses 5 – 11, it really looks like Your trying to get through to me the message: “Be patient” … Patient for Your return … patient and standing firm … Patient without grumbling against others around me … Patient in the face of suffering … patient and persevering through whatever … all because You, Lord, are “FULL OF COMPASSION AND MERCY.”
Here am I, take my life, and make me just like Jesus. Amen.
