    I thank the Lord for a new day and another Thanksgiving. Thank you Lord for new mercies and new grace. For not consuming me, when I've gone astray. Thank you for your son who died for me and set me free. I pray for all nations, especially these United States. That you will save our leaders, if they don't know you. That they might govern this world according to your plan. I come against all powers of evil in the world and leaders who are high-minded and destroy innocent lives. Let us have peace this day. Help me to show love towards all people that they may be drawn to you. And that you might gain glory out of my life. Bless all who seek you Lord. My soul loves you more and more. Thank you for choosing me that I might choose you.

    To Lena Mae - Jeremiah was a chosen prophet of God; God chose him and God KNEW his end from his beginning. Jeremiah didn't displease God; he was speaking in the 1st person for God's people. Every prophet had his own way of prophesying; this was Jeremiah's. Jeremiah LOVED God; please believe that. He was the 'weeping' prophet; he wept over God's people.

    I know God speaks truths,God did then andGod still speaks truths to all of us.God Is perfect, and always does just what He says..I really believe that here in these scriptures of God truths He was not very happy with Jeremiah, and still Godhelped Him,causeGod loves Him so much.God loves us all, and God isn't happy with the way we don't give everything up too Him..God isn't just on the side lines..
