I am blessed because I do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor do I stand in the way of sinners, nor do I sit in the seat of the scornful. My delight is in the Law of the LORD, and in His Law I meditate day and night. I am a tree planted by the rivers of Living Water, I bring forth my fruit in my season, my leaf also does not whither; and everything I do prospers to the glory of GOD. (Psalm 1:1-3)
Have you ever had the experience when waiting before GOD in peace and quiet where it seemed GOD moved you into eternity, and 20 minutes seemed like hours, and you were totally refreshed and energized, and encouraged at the end?
LORD GOD, it seems today the things most on my mind and heart are:
1. My healing and being made whole, healthy, and strong.
2. The peace, salvation, and safety of Kaiden Michael Pappas, my precious grandson.
3. The peace of mind and heart of my precious wife Anita Laraine Pappas.

(299.0) Long day yesterday. I could have used more sleep. My weight seems stuck, but my hope, faith, and trust is in my LORD Jesus Christ; in Him I already have the victory. Praise be to GOD forever more!

(299.0) I failed to fast dinner and pray last night. It is as though I have no faith, no discipline, and no goodness in me. I feel as though I have a faithless, darkened heart; full of deceit, lies, arrogance, pride, foolishness, selfishness, and so much evil the list might never end. LORD GOD, burn these things out of me. Remove the impurities from me. Teach me Your Holy Way. I long to walk uprightly before You, in mercy, grace, love, truth, humility, patience, kindness, meekness, gentleness, joy, peace, and in all things pleasing to You. Often I am as foolish as a young, rebellious, undisciplined child. Deliver me from my self and this selfishness that so pervades my soul. Create in me a clean heart O LORD, and renew a right spirit within me. When will the evil in me be brought to its final end? When will the Light and Life of my LORD Jesus Christ be plainly seen and freely flowing through me? When will I walk and live in true liberty and freedom in Holy Spirit?
