Peace of My Heart

An encouraging voice to drown out the noise

surrenderThis morning I was flipping through my notebook that I take with me to church.  I came across something that I had starred *Admit everyday-I can’t get through this day without you, God.  Otherwise you are saying, “I got this, God.  I don’t need your help.”*

I needed this reminder desperately.  To say that I have been feeling overwhelmed would be a mild understatement.  My mind has been reeling over decisions that need to be made & things that need to be done.  I have been guilty of trying to figure it all out on my own.  I have made the mistake of not asking God each and every day to guide my actions & thoughts.  No wonder I have been feeling as if my peace has been taken from me!

Not today.  Today I choose to surrender everything to the Lord.  Where I go, the things I do, the words I speak…I pray that God would be at the forefront of it all.  Today I will walk behind Him rather than trying to plow my own way.  Today I will rely on God’s promise and believe that He wants us to have a blessed life.  One that is happy, fulfilled, content, settled & prosperous not hectic, chaotic, rushed, stressed, empty & meaningless.

“This is what I told them: ‘Obey me, and I will be your God, and you will be my people. Do everything as I say, and all will be well!’”

(Jeremiah 7:23 NLT)
