Hello, Father!
Lord, I am a bit confused this morning. I know you’ve “got” me, and I know you will lead me forward… but I am struggling with knowing what to do, in what order. There just are soooooo many decisions to be made, without a real structure or routine as of yet. I guess it’s just one of those “ugly duckling” phases right now, that I WILL grow out of, eventually. Father, today I ask that you help me appreciate and enjoy whatever moment and situation I am in at the time, without thinking about the future more than is absolutely necessary. I find myself too often cringing at the coming Texas heat, and wondering how I will either live through it or escape it. I get frustrated with myself, allowing my concern for my future to rob me of my enjoyment of the present. It is excellent weather right now. I want to enjoy it! And I want to enjoy the creative process, and not be drained by the pressures of so many decisions, so many unknowns, so much work left that must be done by myself alone. Father, please help me to lift my burdens up to you and LEAVE them there, not taking them back when I think I must carry them alone. That is foolish! These things are simply too much for me to bear! I need you, Lord. Help me to remember that, and not be a fool. 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.

 
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ERV

But the Lord said, “My grace is all you need. Only when you are weak can everything be done completely by my power.” So I will gladly boast about my weaknesses. Then Christ’s power can stay in me. 
Yes, I am glad to have weaknesses if they are for Christ. I am glad to be insulted and have hard times. I am glad when I am persecuted and have problems, because it is when I am weak that I am really strong.
