Rom. 12:15a–Rejoice with those who rejoice . . .
Dear Heavenly Father,
So often we ask your blessings on our words, and many times see others gain what we desire. I ask that you let not envy or frustration cloud our reaction. Help us to rejoice with those who rejoice.
If one perhaps grabs hold of a prize or an agent’s, editor’s, or publisher’s eyes, let it encourage us onward, teaching us to persevere, to climb the same mountain on which they stand, knowing our blessings are also at hand. Let us rejoice with those who rejoice.
Help us to be patient, Lord. Let not our hearts faint. The gifts you’ve given us will make room if we wait. Until then, let us rejoice with those who rejoice
