Very early in the morning, while it was still dark Jesus got up left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
When I pray, I know that I belonged to Jesus my Lord, self identity functions as a compass to direct our deeds and thoughts.

Keep me safe O God for in you I take refuge.
God leads me and my family in a right way. He knows me well that I am easily captured by something very little and invisible.

Be joyful always. Pray continually. Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
The storms of life will attempt to ravage me, but I know that God protects me and guide me always. Even though it is hard to pass but I can return and close to God by storm which is blessing path later.
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them.
I realized that I quite often rely on many idols like ability and materials instead of Lord, Although all kinds of things are come from god, if I focus on only grace, grace will change into idols. However our God called us free from the slave of worldly values and gives us more valuable things.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
I have always found this text important in my life. My mother quoted it to me often. I continue to try to apply the word “all” as in ‘in all your ways’ appropriately. I keep trying to include my whole life in serving the Lord.
Now Go. I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.
For this week, I faced to the uncomfortable conversation with my bible study member. I was so nervous and wanted to avoid uncomfortable thing to do. But like this verse, I had no idea what to say or how to say. I just trust our God and opened my mouth. He gave the perfect answer for the situation. As long as we’re willing to trust God, he gives us peace & goodness not hurt or confusion.
