Good morning, Father.
I am sorry I am having another weak moment. I am so glad that you not only see the condition of my mind and heart (and body and spirit!), but that you understand where I’m at and why — better than I ever could myself! How awesome! Lord, I just don’t get it how I can out of the blue start feeling so tense like this, somehow irrationally feeling pressure like I need to learn everything and do everything all at once and all so perfectly! In reality, I really don’t have to hurry and get things done, and I really do NOT have to make any decisions right now. It is through prayer and thanksgiving — staying close with you and doing whatever you give me to do, one thing at a time — that I get prepared and be “ready for anything”. It is YOUR work, not mine, that makes things turn out right. You are the Shepherd, and you know where I need to go and when, to get the right nourishment and to accomplish your will for me. Lord, please help me to just be a “dumb sheep” and keep my mouth closed and follow you. Sheep just do not KNOW enough to go off on their own! That is why they have a Shepherd. Thank you, Lord, for caring for little me. Amen.
Hebrews 13:20 ERV
I pray that the God of peace will give you every good thing you need so that you can do what he wants. God is the one who raised from death our Lord Jesus, the Great Shepherd of his sheep. He raised him because Jesus sacrificed his blood to begin the new agreement that never ends. I pray that God will work through Jesus Christ to do the things in us that please him. To him be glory forever. Amen.
Yes, Lord, please do your work in us, make us pleasing to you. I give you this day, my time, my mind, my body, my spirit. Show me how to follow you this day. Amen! 😀
