Prayer Journal: Day 26

Day 26

The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed,

A refuge in times of trouble, and those who know Your name will put their trust in You,

For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. – Psalm 9: 9-10

Sometimes, more often than not, I feel completely overwhelmed. I’m burnt out and have too much to do and can’t sleep. I lie awake in bed and pray to God but peace doesn’t always come just by asking Him for help.

Just because I try to take a deep breath and try to meditate doesn’t mean that the thoughts, to do list, and overwhelm disappear.

The world is too much. I have too much on my plate. I need to say “no” more often and “yes” to taking care of myself.

Taking better care of myself involves a lot of things I have been neglecting: my walk with the Lord, my health, my sleep, and my talents.

I have been doing everything to make everyone else happy for so many years that I am exhausted and depleted.

The only one I need to please is God, and He will never leave me.
