Day Seven (Pre-Launch)

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.
