Sep 18

Good morning, Father.
I don’t know what is wrong with me this morning, but I just feel so darn restless and impatient and even in need of comfort. I feel pressure and irritation that doesn’t seem to be coming from exactly inside me or outside of me… it just IS. Lord, I realize that I do not NEED to understand or be able to explain or justify these sensations. I just give them all to you, knowing that you are my faithful Shepherd and can easily take care of me and all my little inconsistencies and troubles. You know what I need, and I can trust you to provide for ALL of my needs. I give my crazy little human self into your big, loving hands, Lord. I ask you to prune away all the distractions inside me that trip me up — even to remove the things in my life that I may hold dear but that might stand in the way of my becoming more pleasing to you. I give you all that is in me — all that IS me! Heal me, Oh Lord.

 
Psalm 104:27-34 ERV

Lord, all living things depend on you. You give them food at the right time. 
You give it, and they eat it. They are filled with good food from your open hands. 
When you turn away from them, they become frightened. When you take away their breath, they die, and their bodies return to the dust. 
But when you send out your life-giving breath, things come alive, and the world is like new again! 
May the LORD’S glory continue forever! May the LORD enjoy what he made. 
He just looks at the earth, and it trembles. He just touches the mountains, and smoke rises from them. 
I will sing to the LORD for the rest of my life. I will sing praises to my God as long as I live. 
May my words be pleasing to him. The LORD is the one who makes me happy.
