Good morning! Prayer & Praise Monday is back!
We are settling into summer after the busyness of the end of school. I’m trying to get into new rhythms of balancing my mommy time and Throne of Grace responsibilities with kids home from school. I’m so thankful God has given me a ministry that can, for the most part, ebb and flow with family time as it get busy or slows down. I’m also so grateful for customers and Throne of Grace friends who are supportive and understanding when other priorities take precedence! The Garibaldi family has been very focused on making the most of summer. I’ll share more about that later in the week!
Let’s start the week off with a great nugget from Scripture to meditate on:
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8 NIV)
Let’s praise the Lord this week for His gracious gift of salvation. This is something we can thank the Lord for no matter what what we are facing today! And aren’t you so glad this gift is as a result of FAITH, and not works? There is so much freedom in that!
We have just a couple updates to share…
• Please praise the Lord with us for a great appointment for my daughter, Lucy, with her ophthalmologist. Lucy has been wearing glasses and patching her right eye in an attempt to improve her amblyopia (weak vision in one eye compared with the other). We are so thankful for Lucy’s abnormally great attitude and cooperation through this process – and even happier to report the efforts have been worthwhile! There has been some improvement in the weak eye! Lucy will continue to patch for 4 more months and if there is continued improvement, Lucy will be able to stop patching as early as October.
• Please continue to pray for God’s provisions for Throne of Grace in the printer department! We are still struggling to have a printer work consistently. It can be very discouraging and becomes a spiritual battle as we struggle to not let technical issues thwart the work God has for Throne of Grace to do. He is always faithful to help us overcome – we just have to be willing to let go of our own timeline and trust His plan! 🙂
That’s it for this week! We are here to pray for you through your trials and praise God with you in your triumphs. Don’t hesitate to let us know how we can help bring your needs before the Throne of Grace. We’ve got a Heavenly Father willing and able to hear our prayers!
Make it a great week! We’ll meet you back here for Throne of Grace Thursday…
