Heavenly Father, today has been stressful from start to finish. It feels as if I have been a magnet for problems and frustration, and whatever I said or did caused problems to others and distress to me as well. Lord, I feel exhausted, frustrated, stressed out, and far from You.
Father, I know that this is not how my life should be lived. I know that You have promised to give us Your perfect peace in our heart when our mind is focused on You, but Lord, I guess that my mind has not been ‘stayed on You today!’ I admit that I have allowed the stresses and strains of the day to manipulate my mind instead of handing all my worries and stresses to You. And so I hand today over to You, knowing that You alone can soothe away this stressful day.
Help me to rest in You love and give me a good nights sleep, and I pray that in the morning I will remember to place the issues of the tomorrow into Your hands and not try to deal with everything by myself. Thank You, Father, that Your mercies are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness. In Jesus' name,
