Breaking Bread For 6.8.20

Scripture

Honest scales and balances belong to the lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making.

Proverbs 16:11

Reflection

Sometimes we add more pressure, more responsibility, more drama, more headaches and heartbreaks upon ourselves because we want to control or fix something— but then turn to God as though it was His doing, or somehow out of our control. We then are consumed with our stress and forget that God is always our solution. If we want peace, balance, clarity, and more positive energy— we must turn to and release ourselves fully to God.

Prayer

Father, I pray to see that only through You and by You can I find balance in my life. You control the scales, and You make a way out of no way. If I want peace, it must come from my reliance upon and devotion to You. I want to release my cares to You Lord. I want to be freed from my burdens that I subject myself to, and freed from the weight that I place on my shoulders. Let me carry what You place on me, what You say is acceptable, and what helps me to carry out my responsibilities as Your ambassador. Everything else that I keep carrying around and depressing myself with, I ask that You prioritize, rearrange, or take away. Let me only focus on what I’m supposed to, not on the distractions that prevent me from being all that You have called on me to be. In Your name I praise and pray. Amen.

Lovingly,

Natasha
