Lord, I confess that at times I am not “all in” that I can treat You as though You are something I can come back to at my leisure. Thank You that You’re faithful to our relationship. Please forgive me for not always giving You my best. Please judge by the cross the habits I have embraced and the spiritual realm that I have allowed to empower my laziness and sloth. Jesus, show me what I look inside You and You inside me on this matter.

Thank You Lord that You brought Jho and her family safely home. Thank You for all You are doing to bring them closer together.

I thank You Lord of the new bod of friendship I feel with Angie. Thank You that You are always blessing her family and their ministry. Show them how to keep loving people and bless children in Cowlitz County with presents under their Christmas trees. Empower me to bless them as You will.

Thank You for bringing Shannon, RJ and Braden to and from Dad’s house safely! Thank You for their loving ways. Thank You that Karen and I could care for Charlie and their home while they were away.

Thank You Jesus for what seems to be a renewed bond between Karen and her sister. I ask that You continue to bless and build these two women as sisters and friends. Please speak to Stephanie’s heart and bring her salvation and mood mentors and role models. Jesus please empower Laura to be the mother Stephanie needs. Of there is a more tactile way we can be in their lives, please make it happen.

Lord, I lift up Karen S to you. She is such an amazing woman. Please help her be strong to care for her husband. I ask Lord, for all healing You have for him and all blessings and mercy you have for their household and marriage. Thank You for their faithfulness.

Jesus please save Kyler from the destruction that is taking hold of his life and his family. Please bless his wife with a healthy pregnancy and guide both of them on a path of physical, spiritual and emotional health.

Lord I ask that you bless Kyle with a successful sale of his house.

Please guide Michelle and Lynn through their times of mourning. Let each of their days be lighter and surround them with Your love and friends who can help them while they deal with their loss.

Thank You Jesus that I can always come to You. Please let me always be a blessing to You. Keep guiding me and my marriage on Your path.

Amen

Notes: Ezekiel 24: 16-17

God wants our best. He doesn’t want complacency or for us to hold back our best for Him.

Notes: Ezekiel 24: 21-27

“Your arrogant boast” = Pride of your strength

“The delight of your soul” = Compassion

Profane: Treat something sacred with irreverence or disrespect

Because you don’t appreciate the gift  of the great relationship with God…it will be given to someone else.

25) Punishment to those who influenced Israel negatively

26) Natural catastrophes – God’s way of reminding us that He is God.

I am praying for you.

My name is Summer (Executive Director for Living Ministries). That is how you can call me. I hope that I am a blessing to you. I am not perfect. I will fall again. But I am forgiven.

Do you know Jesus? Do want the Holy Spirit to fill you and give you understanding and salvation? Ask Him. Want someone to pray with you? Contact me.

If you would like to know Jesus as your friend, but want to make this amazing commitment by yourself please pray something like this:

Thank you Jesus that You are the Son of God, the God that created heaven and earth. Thank you Jesus that You came to earth in the form of a man so that You would be able to empathize with my humanity. Thank You that You did this in order to fulfill the promises You made at the foundation of the world.

I realize that I am a sinner and do things that hurt myself and keep myself away from you. Thank You that You died for my sins so that You could defeat death and bring me into Your life. Please forgive me.

I ask You to be Lord of my life. I ask you to heal my hurts and show me what my new life, empowered by You looks like. Thank You for Your mercy.

Amen

The Lord is with you always.
