Prayer Request

I realize
I woke this morning with an ache in my belly. But it wasn't hunger for food.
My heart was racing, but it wasn't from fear.
I had a tremble in my muscles but it wasn't from physical exertion.

My hunger was because my soul was on empty, the racing heart was due to the long walk far from you, the trembling was due to my weakened spirit.

Lord you never intended for me to live a life, wrapped up trapped up, constricted and confused.

I was created to be joyful, humble, grateful and at your will to be used.

I got bound in the trappings of the last year.
I forgot the reason that I'm really here.

Forgive me Jesus because I do get tired, I do get stressed, I do get down.
Sometimes all I can see is the world around.

I forget that when I think I can't make it through,
All I have to do is look to you.

I wondered why last year got harder day by day.
When I looked back, I realized I had wandered far away.

I forgot that I'm not at the wheel, I forgot I'm not in control and my life is not my own.
I forgot that you are the driver, the captain and I belong to you alone.

Lord let this new year be full of the promises and gifts you have for me.
Let me experience this year how it feels to be truly free.

I wont stress, I wont cry, whimper our whine.
I wont try to fight this fight, because you told me this battle's not mine.

I trust you Lord and I understand,
I have to submit to have the life you've planned.
