My prayer for today

Dear Lord

Dear Lord, it’s time you take things over for me
I’ve got too much to handle at this time
The burdens of this life are full upon me
And I find life’s mountain just too high to climb.

It’s not that I am shirking all my duties
Or that I want to give them all to you
It’s just that I have finally reached my limit
And I know this is the only thing to do.

I need my time to be a wife and mother
These things are more important to me now
And once my mind is clear from other worries
I know everything will be all right somehow.

Amen.

 

I wrote this when my hubby Ron was going through heart surgery now I need it to help me through my surgery today, I will admit I am afraid this is far too many operations for one body to go through but down deep I know the Good Lord will keep me safe.

    Chris, I’m sorry I didn’t know about this sooner. I did pray for you this morning as usual, but not concerning surgery. I know it will be long over by now, but I pray that your recovery will be swift and that you will be back on your feet in no time. In the meantime, I pray that the Lord will cosset you in His presence and whisper His secrets into your ear. Rest in Him. He is faithful and He is surrounding you with songs of deliverance (Psalm 32:7).

    “The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.” Zephaniah 3:17. According to the note in the margin of the NASB the phrase “be quiet in His love” can also mean “renew you in His love”. So take this time to be renewed not only in your body but also in your soul and spirit. Soak up His presence and be strengthened in His strength.

    Remember, “[You] can do all things through Christ who strengthens [you]” (Philippians 4:13). “My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). It’s according to His riches, not our need. It can’t get much better than that. 🙂 God bless and keep you in the hollow of His hand.

    Chris, I’ll be praying for you all day, that the Lord will be present with you and that all things will go well and to His glory. He says to cast our burdens onto Him and He will give us rest. So rest in Him and He will see you through this and the victory will be yours. Remember that “by His stripes we ARE healed”. So, this is a procedure that the body must endure but He has healed you already. I know it’s scary for you, been there and done that, but God never leaves His children to do things themself when we’ve given it over to Him. He will be right there guiding the hands of the surgeons and giving them the wisdom and abilities they need for you. I pray you’ll be at peace today and that you’ll be home soon and feeling well. So smile, because God loves you……..ronnie
