In Everything

Father God, thank you for this day of Thanksgiving. We are grateful for the undying grace that you shine over our lives. Father thank you for the time we are about to share today with our family and friends. Diane and I behold the moments when our home is filled with those closest to us in our life.

Jesus, we know our struggles with health, jobs, relationships, school, are your will to help us grow in our own understanding. We understand that it is through our struggle that good increases in our lives.  Father help us to decrease so that you can increase in our lives so we see your plan.

Thank you for the meal we about to share with our family and friends at our table, Abba. We are thankful today for them because as they are part of our hearts, Father. We know that those we love who are not with us on earth today are seated at your table Father God. We long to be at your table one day to be reunited with them.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “In everything give thanks, for this is Gods will for you in Jesus Christ.”

Abba, we know we cannot do this on our own.

We are thankful to you Father God.

In Jesus name we pray…

I am second. I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer. My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family. Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself. My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul. What is your temenos circle?
