Lord, thank you for today. Thank you for the rest You gave overnight, and for clarity of mind this morning. Today is Your day. I know you are with me. I lay all of me out before You, my thoughts and dreams, my inspirations, my insecurities, my inhibitions. I know You made me, and I know You are here for me. Make me what You need me to be in order to fulfill Your purpose in me. In your Holy Name, I pray. Amen
Yesterday was filled with anxiety… which is very odd for me. I have a few close friends who battle anxiety and, quite honestly, they come to me for guidance, which I happily refer them to 1 Peter 5:7 “cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”
and there I was, taking my own scripture pill, wondering why it didn’t magically disappear.. sometimes I think God allows these moments in our lives to give us empathy toward what others are going through. Empathetic… I am. I understand the helpless feeling of having anxiety for seemingly no reason and not being able to change it. My simple answer is that, through this, God is trying to teach us to rely on Him, and to let go of our worries. It is much easier said than done.
I am a work in progress, as are we all. My heart is with all of you.
Be blessed as I am blessed today, my friends.
