Good morning, Lord. Thank you for a sabbath day of rest. We need it. A time to recharge physically and spiritually. Thank you for your help with the video yesterday. I wrote the script in the morning and when I read it to Vero, she cried and then I cried. It was very emotional to try to put our message into a few minutes of introduction. But then I had to reduce it from 11 minutes to less than 5 minutes for technical reasons, make it lighter and not preach so much, and try to spruce it up with animation and extras (which I don´t know how to do). Lord, sometimes I think we are our own worst enemies. I don´t want to get in the way of your message. Give me wisdom and help me speak from the heart. I want to do the best job that I can but I also want to share my heart. In the end, it is your blessing that matters.
Lord, I give you this ministry, this entire effort, it all belongs to you. I look at myself and I wonder what people see. A loser. A sinner. A clay pot unworthy of the glory of your grace. Lord, I´m not the best choice for something like this. I´m too direct and I lack patience. I want to get to the truth and deal with reality. I have no patience for politics and playing games. Lord, I know that is my flesh too. I need to have the same patience that you have with me. I need to be as gentle with others that you are with me. I need to see others as you see me, in Christ, without spot or blemish before your throne. I need you in my life, Lord. Change me and give me your eyes to see, your ears to hear, your heart to love others as you love them. I belong to you. In your name, I pray. Amen.
