Note to self… work on boundaries.  I have boundaries, but I believe I use them the wrong way. Not necessarily boundaries intended to keep one from drinking, smoking, etc… but boundaries, in general, to maintain my sanity… boundaries pertaining to interactions with those in the world, mostly… I’ve got no problem speaking up, but it’s the whole art of not making a situation worse that needs fine-tuning…

12:39pm

Short time before checking out of work… God is good all the time and it won’t be but a few minutes before going to school. Day is going well… need to tighten up on the house/apt. search, though… feeling hopeful, though. I’ma see what’s happening when I get off work. Thank YOu, Father for an open door.

9:20pm

Tonight is a night that I got a sincere impulse to do wrong… allowing myself to be tugged to making a withdrawal (atm) that I had no reason to make at all. It was after 8 p.m. Four times my card refused to be read… not because money was not available… but because a connection could not be established. (to bank)_….. Even when I let go Lord, You hold me up. Please forgive me and thank You for bringing me peace, or helping me receive it, rather.

Thank You, Father, for helping me keep my heart stayed on You… every day i precisely that- a day– a day You have permitted us to awaken to, to live, to lift up our heads, our eyes, to behold Your glory… Your will be done, Father, I will trust You- by the power of the Holy Ghost… I will not return to a yoke of bondage, in Jesus name.

Between today and yesterday- there was a good bit of driving done- thank You; Lord, for keeping me safe and getting me to my destination safely…  I’m with the family- we’re watching t.v.- it’s been a few months since I’ve seen my parents and brothers… I’ve missed them- and this is a good feeling. I really have missed them… In the morning- we will go to church together… my mom, youngest brother, and I…

It’s interesting how God will reacquaint you with people or bring them into your life where you can see them, and they can see you, and you can be a testimony to them just by being in front of them… for example- there are places that I can simply ‘not venture’ back into because it’d be a lack of judgement on my part… but on multiple occasions my path has crossed with individuals from my past where if we’d been a minute off – we’d have never hit each other. (People that I should never or would never have ever ever ever had run back into… like, literally makes absolutely no sense whatsoever how we have crossed paths again; apart from God) Nonetheless, God has been good to us– and His timing is the only timing. Thank You Lord.

Extremely moody at the moment… just swimming in trepidation…for real… I mean, I understand that life is not what it was and I am truly overjoyed… I’m sure of the work God has done in my life… but here and now I’ve just been a little anxious due to the changes in environment with work and moving out soon… God thank You for Your goodness, mercy, grace, and faithfulness.

It’s almost that time [work]… the weather is ‘muggy’… mom used to say that all the time when we [kids] were younger… The ‘mugginess’ has certainly made for the best slip’n slides at work. (Mud everywhere). The jobs going to get done, today, God willing… Class at 6pm- today is going to be awesome. Thank YOu Lord for Your covering- Your armor and safety… discernment and wisdom.

Just 30 minutes or so before I peel out and head to the ‘OC’. Just finishing up on a review in electrical workbook. Back to work in the morning… still very excited and holding on to that with everything I’ve got… that’s a lie… holding fast to the relationship with the Lord—even when I screw up.

need to be on the prowl for apartment or house, but I’m trusting God knows this and He will provide an answer… so we’re ‘stack’in’ (checks), getting this probation paid off, and staying plugged in… prepared to serve always… God is good- all the time… and He’s not done with me yet… or my family, or my friends, or my enemies… Thank You Lord for grace and mercy.

Thank You, for bringing me home Lord. You tell me and show me what’s good for me… I don’t always listen, but you never leave me… You want what’s best for me… I’m hardheaded and hardhearted like I just must touch the stove sometimes… Don’t let me live as one storing up wrath, Father… or forget any bit of what’s past–> all that I’ve come through… that You’ve brought me through… thank You for good health… thank You for a heart change… and determination also, conviction–>> to live a life worth living. Your will be done, Father. Thank You for helping me forgive others and myself. Thank You for the beautiful people that are part of my life.
