Good morning, Saints of the Most High God:
I come to you this morning to encourage you and to remind you that God has not given up on you, so please don’t give up on God.
I know sometimes that it is easy to be angry at God, because you feel like you can’t win. My brothers and my sisters, I beg you to hold on. Joy is coming. It is just on the other side of your praise. Keep going. You are almost through it.
Living Bible (TLB)
23 Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!
2-3 He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.
4 Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.[a]
5 You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest;[b] blessings overflow!
6 Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.
I have communicated with several of you and I know that it seems like the hardships of life won’t stop coming.
I want to stand with you and say, “Hold On.”
This morning, we intentionally set the atmosphere for today and this week, as we go to God in prayer:
Father God, Infinite One:
We come to you this morning thanking you for every hill and every mountain that we must face. We know that you are right there with us as we travel this road of life.
Refresh us, Lord, as we continue in this journey. Let our hope and our peace rest in you. Where we have lost our faith and hope, we pray that you would carry us through until we are strong enough to walk on our own.
Allow our lives to be demonstrations of your faithfulness toward us. Let our fruit be good fruit that does not wither. You are The Vine and we are your branches. May we never forget that we are not alone. We love you, God.
We thank you for trusting us enough to allow this storm to come. May Your name be on the lips of everyone who sees your glory and deliverance. In the mighty and matchless name of your Son, Jesus – The Christ. Amen.

I love you, with an AMAZING LOVE and there is nothing you can do to change my mind.
