I propose we start a daily prayer. I will start with one that is most relevant, and hopefully this can be a tradition that is carried on. For what is a culture without tradition.

Day 1 prayer:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Forever and ever in the lords name, amen.

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭19:14‬ ‭NIV‬‬ https://www.bible.com/111/psa.19.14.niv

I am feeling like the enemy is digging into me. I cannot control my mouth, cursing and lashing out at my family. I felt like I could finally voice myself around October. I was the girl in the family who was to be seen and not heard, then I moved to a blue zone, so I’ve spent many years biting my tongue. Now I feel like I’ve swung to the other side of the pendulum and am beginning to wonder if my soul isn’t full of putrid blackness. I read about Ananias and Sapphira this morning and that triggered some fear. (My husband would no way give all to the Lord (we have many arguments about giving 10-20%), and I’m having fear that we will lose everything in the stock market—he won’t go to even partial cash for fear of missing upside.)

I know this probably belongs in the daily thread, but I cannot find it.

Oh boy this post really hit home for me. Thanks for sharing your struggle. I’m in many ways in the same boat. God bless.
