Good morning! Some days are busier than the day before. Sometimes our long ‘to do’ list is accomplished, while other days we rejoice if we get one or two things done. Can you list five things you need to do today? Does it include prayer or reading the word? Well, let’s continue in Matthew 10.
“34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn
“‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
36 a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’[c]
37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” – Matthew 10:34-39 NLT

Father God, thank you for your grace and mercy toward us. Lord, we don’t deserve anything but death, yet you came so that we can live abundantly. Lord, thank you for the abundance. Thank you for reaching out to us at our lowest, still loving us unconditionally. No one is like you. Lord, forgiver of sins, we ask for forgiveness of our sins. Lord, remove the things that aren’t of you. Lord, restore our hope and faith in you on a daily basis. Lord, help us to keep you first – above all things. Lord, pierce our hearts and tongues with your sword so that our heart will be saturated with your love and our mouths will confess your truth. Lord be with us today and give us favor on our jobs, on our job searches, in school, with medical appointments, etc. Lord, bring back the lost sheep. Prepare and equip the church to receive them. In Jesus name, amen!
Keep praying. Keep trusting. Keep seeking.
