Prayer: Heavenly Father. Thank You for all You have taught me, as Your Word has placed life's experiences in a heavenly perspective. Please forgive my impatience in rushing my time with You and for the priority I have given to spiritually wasteful pursuits. Please give me a new desire to treasure all You have revealed to me, and a new peaceful confidence to wait until You fit the pieces together. Meanwhile, may I continue to hold everything with a tender preciousness, and seek my next step of obedience as I follow Jesus. In His Name. Amen.
