Deuteronomy 1:29-31 Then I said to you, "Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of them. The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the desert. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place." (NIV) Dear God, my Father, Thanks for the times you have carried me. The times in my life when I was afraid, and even terrified. I'm grateful for the times you saved my life when I had given up, for fighting for me against my spiritual enemies, that you did not let the enemy take my soul nor my life; you fought for me because somehow you found me worthy of your love and redemption. I bow before your throne in gratitude for all you have done for me. I do not feel worthy of your love, but in kindness and mercy, you reached out to me. I give thanks and praise that you are still carrying me. I don't know what I would do without you. I am not physically well today. My illness is flaring badly probably because of the stre ss of the past few days. I ask that you please continue to carry me. Help me to get through today...one more day...without the need for antidepressants. I can tell this transition is messing with my brain as I am having "brain zaps", confusion, and some memory issues. Apparently that's normal for a while, but it's uncomfortable and a little scary. I need your reassurance that it is all under your control, and will be ok. Please carry me through this wilderness of withdrawal as you carried the Israelites through the desert after they left Egypt. I know I am free and healed of depression, and soon I will be in the promise land of freedom from chemicals that have controlled my mind for so many years. Praise you for deliverance! You have promised to carry me and I trust you. You will show me the way. Please heal my body physically from autoimmune illnesses. Help me to cope with the pain. Help me not to complain about the Manna. I love you, God. Please forgive my sins and deliver me from temptation.
