This 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)
