Notes from my prayer time today

I believe:
  • The 2 Great Commandments (1. Love the LORD your God with all your heart, ... soul, and ... mind. 2. Love your neighbor as yourself. (DEU 6:5, LEV 19:18; MAT 22:37-40))
  • we do #1 when doing #2
  • #2 starts with fellow-believers, but includes anyone on my path.
  • God does not require more than I can do in the strength of Christ
  • I must every moment be in fellowship with God
  • I can do all things through Christ
  • It is often easier with the support of brothers
  • It usually is best to break the task into steps.
God does not promise to show me the whole path to walk, just possible next steps

He will direct my steps to the correct next step as I commune with him

I get in trouble or despair whenever I take my eyes off of Jesus or start going it alone (which happens daily)

I tend to see the whole task and freeze rather than remember that today I am only responsible for today's step on the path

I forget to enjoy Him, to enjoy the tasks He gives me
