God, you are endlessly faithful.
When I am overwhelmed, you remind me of the peace that comes from bringing order out of chaos.
When I was alone, you gave me the husband and family I always dreamed of.
When I am down, you provide encouragement through the words of friends.
When I was sick, you directed my steps and put a light on the path that would bring me to wellness.
When things look their darkest, and I can’t imagine a way out, you are ALWAYS there with me, and you never fail to light the way.
And yet, I continue to fear.
To take everything on my own shoulders and try to face every problem alone.
I forget that You are Greater than any problem, any fear, any worry I might have.
I forget that You are ALWAYS there for me and I am NEVER alone.
I forget that there isn’t anything I can’t handle if I just remember to hold your hand and let you guide the way.
Forgive me, father, for not trusting in you enough.
Teach me to fully trust in you, to make my first instinct to run to you instead of to worry.
Remind me of what it looks like to worship and trust in you like David did.
Teach me to trust in your guidance, and be on the alert for the sound of your voice.
Grant me the patience and wisdom to follow your lead, and to stop trying to handle everything alone.
Thank you, Father, for your forgiveness, your love, and your endless patience.
Don’t give up on me. Love, M.
