Worrier Warrior, A Bit of A Fixer Upper

Philippians 1:6 English Standard Version (ESV)
6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

It's another Sunday spent recovering from knee replacement surgery.  God remains with me and remains good.  I've been filling probably too much of my time watching home improvement, fixer-upper TV shows.  Maybe it's because I'm still a fixer-upper. I thought I'd further along in my recovery, but surprise!  God must have his reasons.  I'm not yet where I can spend a full day at a computer terminal, a full half-hour maybe, but not even close to a full day; so, I'm inclined to worry because my sick leave won't last forever and I do need to return to work.  Another surprise came this week with an audit of my pay leading to some extra funds in my pay slip.  Yes, God remains good even to an impatient, worrier warrior.  Still all prayers on my behalf would be greatly appreciated.

Matthew West - All In (Audio)

It's Sunday!

This is my second missed Sunday church post surgery, and I do admit that I miss it!
Psalm 122 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Psalm 122
A song of ascents, by David.

1 I was glad because they said to me,
“We will go to the Lord’s temple.”
2 Our feet are standing
inside your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is a city designed
to accommodate an assembly.
4 The tribes go up there,
the tribes of the Lord,
where it is required that Israel
give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5 Indeed, the leaders sit there on thrones and make legal decisions,
on the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
May those who love her prosper!
7 May there be peace inside your defenses,
and prosperity inside your fortresses!
8 For the sake of my brothers and my neighbors
I will say, “May there be peace in you!”
9 For the sake of the temple of the Lord our God
I will pray for you to prosper.
