Dear Lord, keep me focused on one thing only today, your forever hope. Don’t let me turn to the right nor to the let, but keep me moving without doubt or disappointment toward the goal you set before me. Remind me to look past the difficulties of today to see your eternal blessing. Let me not get discouraged as I wait for your perfect timing. Father, forgive my impatience. Grow the seeds I plant to your glory and sprout them into faith as you will. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

” Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter, 1:13 ESV)
