Good morning, Father!  Thank you for the restful extra sleep. I so appreciate Your tender loving care for me. I want to be more like You every day.

Philippians 1: 3-11 (<<click here)

An inspiring passage that goes back a ways for me and reminds me of Steve Green’s song, “He Who Began a Good Work in You”. You are faithful, Lord, what You have begun you will finish. We are always a work in progress; You always have a work for us to do. We are always to be about becoming more and more like You. Verse 9 says that our “love will overflow more and more, and that [we] will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.” Lord, help me to keep on pressing onward and upward!  There is much to do and time is short. You may come at any time, I may go at any time – regardless my life is but a breath and I must be about my Father’s business.

Lord, I know I am far from perfect but I know You, through Your Spirit in me, continue to direct and guide my thoughts and actions. I pray that you will continue to do so, not that you are not willing or able, for You surely are but that I will continue to be faithful and obedient. Truly help my love to “overflow more and more”!

♪♫♪ He Who Began a Good Work in You ♫♪♫


He who began a good work in you
He who began a good work in you
Will be faithful to complete it
He’ll be faithful to complete it
He who started the work
Will be faithful to complete it in you

If the struggle you’re facing
Is slowly replacing
Your hope with despair
Or the process is long
And you’re losing your song
In the night you can be sure
That the Lord has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you
You are His treasure
And He finds His pleasure in you
