Father, today I feel overwhelmed! It’s like everything is coming down on me at one time. I can barely breathe! I’m too busy for my own good!
Father I feel like I moved from having a full plate of things to do, to having an overflowing platter of things to do. I can’t even figure out what to do first because everything and everyone is screaming, “ME FIRST!” I feel like my life is spinning out of control. I just want to yell “STOP!” and hit the restart button so I can begin again.
Father I need You! I need You to give me an inner calm and an inner peace so I can think. I need You to help me figure out all the stuff I have going on in my life and help me decide what I need to do verses what I can give to someone else to do. Father, help me focus on You so You can focus me.
I know I’ve done this to myself and I am not ashamed to say I need You to help me sort out the mess I’ve made. I will do like Jesus, I will pull away from all the stuff and listen for You. I know You will tell me what I need to know, You will give me inner calm and peace and You will help me not to get into this predicament again if I listen and follow You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Isaiah 26:3 – 4
Lamentations 3:19 – 26
