I shall yet learn, and grow beyond the immaturity of adulthood. I shall again laugh, and learn the wisdom of a child.

Lord, this morning I am feeling pretty frustrated. I believe it may be mostly just lack of sleep, though. My head isn’t working quite right, but I still cannot seem to just relax and sleeeeeeep! There are just too many things I want to DO, to create, to grow, to learn, to try… and I cannot seem to shut off my own DRIVE lately! Father, you see all that is in me, all that I desire, all that I need to be doing, and all that I need to let GO. Please give me discernment and peace, help me rest, and help me to just hand all this energy — and every ounce of TIME that is weighing on me — over to you, and allow YOU to fill me, to guide me, and to provide for me. I trust you completely, Lord Jesus. I choose you.

Philippians 1:9-11 ERV

This is my prayer for you: that your love will grow more and more; that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love; 
that you will see the difference between what is important and what is not and choose what is important; that you will be pure and blameless for the coming of Christ; 
that your life will be full of the many good works that are produced by Jesus Christ to bring glory and praise to God. 

Lord, I offer my little heart up to you and ask you to prune away the distractions in my life and in my mind, and help me to focus on you and what is really important. Help me to accept your peace and be still. Amen.
