A Gift For Busy People

Matthew 11: 18, "'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.'"


1 John 2: 17, "The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever."


1 Peter 5: 7, "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."


Psalm 46: 10, "He says, 'Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations I will be exalted in the earth.'"


Ecclesiastes 3: 1, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens."


Dear Father,

During this busy time of the year, I pray that my words and actions are glorifying to YOU. May I not worry so much about attending all the gatherings, the rehearsals, the parties and the programs, but may I be focused on being at YOUR FEET. Help me to find my way in Your way. May I not stress so much about making sure everything is perfect, but I may remember that I am human and YOU are God. Please remind me to put YOU first, my family second, and that eveyrthing else will fall into place, and lease remind me that it's okay to say "no" if I need to! Please give me an extra dose of thankfulness and joy, and grace for when things don't go just as I have planned, and help me to keep the peace that YOU have given me in the forefront of these busy days. Help me to memorize Your Word to remind that I need to be still in You! I love YOU, Lord! You are more than wonderful and more than sufficient! Thank You! In Jesus' name I pray! Amen.
