    Blessings, brother Bruce from down south in the tip of Texas. I learned of your Lenten journey e-mail program thru a co-worker/friend. I was able to start the Lenten season with your reflections as I also do other e-mail reflections like yours. I look forward daily to listen and momentarily have you come on to enlighten me with the scripture readings followed with your sharing of your own personal journey and reflections. Thank you for ministry to enlighten all of us who seek growth in Faith and spirituality and a close encounter with our Lord Jesus. This Lenten season you have been an important element to my endeavor with Jesus.
    Be blessed in Jesus.and our Blessed Mother Mary who always prays for us.

    Dear heavenly father, only you know what each day holds. Help me to put my complete trust in you each and every day and not try to do it all on my own. I know you are calling me to greater things, but that road is hard and scary and means that I have to swallow my pride. Lord I surrender all my concerns and fears to you. I hand them all to you and trust that I am enough. I trust that you will heal my heart and mend my relationships. I trust that you will walk with me and hold my hand each step of the way in my faith and sharing that with others. I trust that you will provide when things are tough. Lord jesus, I love you and need you. You are the only friend who can completely understand my problems and who will listen with a loving, kind and unbiased ear and point me in the right direction thank you for being there each and every day. Amen

I need to trust in God about my social life.

    Lord, I trust you in my finances. that there will be enough to cover the bills and to give to others who need. I trust you in my friendships that I currently lack, and invitations rejected. I know you have given me so many blessings in my life with my family and friends who have gone to you, and now time to invest in what you have in store for me. My future is bright if I am open to seeing Your directions and taking each step as it appears without knowing where it is leading. I trust you in my family and extended family that you will bring these loving people to know you personally, open their hearts to see you waiting. I know you say Come as you are, and I will always be with you. .Thank you.

    Hi Bruce, today u took my breath away. My husband has been retrenched from work and he just recently lost his Dad to cancer and we had to travel across the world to help his Mom with all the final arrangements for Dad. Mom also has cancer and the stress of family situation and now my husbands retrenchment has been huge. I told a good friend how we were battling to come to terms with all this and she said to me hand it all to the Lord which I have done and then I listened to you today (I listened twice 😊 ) and I just gave up in all faith and totally surrendered to God my father in heaven. Our Son who lives in US has also lost his job so we have been really concerned for him, today you gave me hope, you gave me joy that our good Lord will walk us through this tuff time and I just pray “Lord let your will be done for us”. God bless u Bruce and thank you. 🤗

I believe I needed to experience this to be transformed to the person you want me to be. In renouncing my will over to your will, i started to see that your plan for my life is much better and i felt the real inner peace and joy that only you can give.

    Lord, help me to really TRUST You, not just say the words and then go about my day doing things the way I like, but to really recognise You right there beside me, watching over me and guiding me, even when I may not be doing things that I should and really PLEASE You! Lord help me to truly surrender myself to You and TRUST that You will provide me with the graces I need to deal with all those things I need to fix in my life, those things I have left undone and seem never to get done but should be getting done to find You and Peace and Joy and Love right there with You in the midst of my life no matter what difficulties or unpleasantness may be surrounding me and our loved ones!
    Lord, Abba help me to move in with You to that deeper level and really TRUST You no matter what the immediate moments hold for me! Lord help me through the good and not-so-good times to still know that we are in Your presence, Peace, Joy and Love with those You Bless me with in my passing life in this world so that it is not only beyond reproach but pleasing to you, oh God of all creation!

    Dear Bruce, thank you for a very touching talk today. God I trust in you to guide me through my finances especially since I have a lot of expenses coming up at one time. Also I need that you will let me know if I am to find a special man in my life. I do have a lot of love to give. Also my Mum does not keep well at all and suffers from High Blood pressure as well as having a thyroid problem and eye problem, help me to help her see that you are their for all of us and for her to put her complete trust in you. I have complete trust in you God and I know that things and situations in life always work out well. God you have always being there for me especially when I have been through stress and the toughest times in my life. I know that God you are always helping my Mum and I get through the stress in our lives which is my Dad, he is the hardest person to live with. God I thank you for all the blessings which you have bestowed upon me. I want to thank you for giving me the strength to have my own way when it comes to decisions in my life, and not letting my Dad make them for me. I am 39 years old. My Dad is very controlling and thinks he has the right to control people, he has known now for some years he cannot be controlling with me as I have the strength to stand up to him , and that is because of you God. I thank you so much. Please keep my Mother and I in good health so that we can continue to enjoy the life you have given to us.
