I Need to Simplify My Life
Dear God of Peace,
My life feels cluttered right now. My household is not in order. I can’t find anything. I am working on many things and not doing any of them very well. I don’t feel connected to friends and family because I am running so many different directions. I’m forgetting things and then showing up late!
I know, dear God, You are not the author of confusion. I know that the enemy of my soul would love to create so many distractions and worries that I forget to trust and love You. He would love nothing more than to rob me of my joy. He would love to see my lose my sense of priority.
But You are a God of peace! I turn to You right now for guidance on what things I need to hold tightly to, and what things I need to let go of. I have taken on too much and have become distracted by things that don’t really matter. I know there are even some good activities I need to forgo in order that I do what’s best. I know as I lean on You today that You will bring a new sense of order and peace to my life and to my household.
Thank you for peace.
In Jesus’ name.
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. —Isaiah 40:31 nkjv
