John: Thank you, Papa, for creating me and for staying with me. Thank you for thinking me up. In my very human humanity, I get to be like Jesus, “found in fashion as a human.” Thank you for helping me get through very human and humbling things.

I don’t have to be wrapped up in my survival or success. I can be available to serve you and the others you bring my way.

“not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” (Philippians 2:4, TNIV)

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus…” (Philippians 2:5)

“I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare.” (Philippians 2:20, TNIV)

“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.” (Proverbs 3:5, The Message) “For God is my witness, how I yearn (4698. σπλάγχνον splágchnon; in the NT only pl. tá splágchna, the bowels, viscera) for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:8, ESV)

“μάρτυς γάρ μου ὁ θεὸς ὡς ἐπιποθῶ πάντας ὑμᾶς ἐν σπλάγχνοις Χριστοῦ Ἰησοῦ.” (Philippians 1:8, AGNT)

What do you want me to hear? These verses matter.

LORD: We are the One who moves in you “both to will and to do.” Let us. We are and will move. Rest in our work. It is live local and late breaking. “Our will” will be done. Let it be.
