Heavenly Father, today has been stressful from start to finish. It feels as if I have been a magnet for problems and frustration, and that no matter what I said or did has caused problems to others and distress to me as well – and 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,
