Let me get through today, Lord, and I shall not fear tomorrow. My Jesus if You uphold me, I shall not fall.

Words written in red; Words of Jesus
Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, "Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat." And he called the people to him and said to them, "Hear and understand: not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man." Then the disciples came and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?" He answered, "Every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up. Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."
Matthew 15: 1 – 2, 10 – 14
Let me get through today, Lord, and I shall not fear tomorrow. My Jesus if You uphold me, I shall not fall.
— St. Philip Neri
Abba, Father, Lord God, thankful, humble, I need Your guidance and energy to help me persevere over what lies ahead today and this week while continuing to grow in the Spirit of Jesus which lives within me. For while I know I have much to do, nothing is more important than continuing to remain conscious to today’s Gospel teachings of Jesus; for one harsh word can erase days, weeks, months, years – no all of one’s good works! While I now know I may never be able to control temper and tame my mouth and the hurt and pain which comes from it, I also know there is no reason, thing, or person that be used as an excuse. For with all the hurt and pain created in others the one I hurt the most is myself; for what is more painful than knowing my lack of discipline has caused so much pain in those I love so much. I know that through awareness and in Jesus is my only hope to break the cycle of hurt and pain, and create a legacy of hope rooted in Jesus as the source of source for faith that if I honor and seek to walk in His teachings I can find heaven on earth under the sun, a treasure truly worth more than anything from under the sun. Keep me conscious, keep me rooted in Jesus, and keep me close. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Audio books I am listening to and other books or readings I am reading:
When I Lay My Isaac Down: Unshakable Faith in Unthinkable Circumstances (Unabridged) By: Carol Kent Sometimes we make sacrifices to help us get ahead, to allow us more time with family, or because we believe in the cause. And then there are sacrifices in which we have no say, "Isaac experiences" as in Genesis 22, thrust upon us without warning or survival instructions. This audio book outlines eight transformational power principles that Gene and Carol Kent learned in the process of facing the news that forever changed their lives.
Becoming a Person of Influence By: John C. Maxwell and Jim Dornan "You can immediately [sense a] spark when you hear John Maxwell and Jim Dornan talk about leadership. Their understanding of influence is like mine for guitars; it’s woven into the fabric of their being." – (Bob Taylor, President, Taylor Guitars). With influence, you can achieve success at home, work, and in every other area of life.
