We’re all facing uphill battles this year, this quarter, this month, this week, and today. But are our battles any more difficult than those in the past?
Or are they simply just more battles to overcome at a time when maybe we have less resources than in the past?
Or is it because other people are under a lot of pressure their weight comes down on us more so now, than in the past?
Or maybe it’s a figment of our imagination because we’re afraid.
Yes, it’s scary a great deal of the time. Yes, it can rattle the nerves and cause your body to seize up in pain—but we can make it through. As we work through life’s lessons we are clearing the pathway for others, for our children and generations to come; and we are making ourselves stronger so that each obstacle we approach we gain the courage to tell ourselves, “I’ve got this.”
Father, throughout my day I pray to You, give thanks for You, and say thank You for my many blessings. I seek You Lord minute by minute to help me to see things through, to help me to find my way, and to realize my purpose in Your Kingdom and on Your land.
Father I have to make decisions about who to trust, who to associate with, and who to walk away from. I’m scared Father. I’m scared that I will make the wrong decisions. I am afraid to disappoint You.
Lord, deliver me from all of my fears. Calm my nerves so that I worry no more as I put my trust and faith in You.
I love you all,
