Lord, I hate it when I wake up feeling like I am already behind! And that just doesn’t seem right, when I was up until after midnight working, and I got up at 6:30 in the morning!! It SUCKS that a bunch of little things can accumulate to make me feel more overwhelmed than I already feel, more pressured to work, work, work as fast and as hard as I can. I KNOW that you’ve got me, Lord, that my worry is total foolishness. I have been trying to let GO and just give it to you. Please help me be wiser than my emotions, Father. Help me to overcome these stupid senseless feelings and just trust completely in you. I need a little encouragement, Lord. 😥

 
1 Peter 5:6-11 ERV

So be humble under God’s powerful hand. Then he will lift you up when the right time comes. 
Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you. 
Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat. 
Refuse to follow the devil. Stand strong in your faith. You know that your brothers and sisters all over the world are having the same sufferings that you have. 
Yes, you will suffer for a short time. But after that, God will make everything right. He will make you strong. He will support you and keep you from falling. He is the God who gives all grace. He chose you to share in his glory in Christ. That glory will continue forever. 
All power is his forever. Amen. 

 
Lord, please help me feel your Touch MORE than I feel these crazed premenopause chaotic emotions! I have been so careful to not pollute my body with alcohol or ANY kinds of drugs, so that I can do my work faithfully — yet my body is betraying me and giving me its own versions of distracting substances! Help me remember that this is something I cannot control, so I should not waste time thinking about. Help me to focus on the things I CAN change, and let all the rest of that GO. Help me to give you all my little worries and burdens, and just be FREE in this day. Help me to get done with what NEEDS to be done today, and to trust you to give me all the time I need to accomplish everything else. I lay all this at your feet, faithful Shepherd. My heart is in your Hands. Amen.
