thank you for the weekend.
Thank you for strength and health to look after my grandson.
Thank you for the gift of a grandson.
I thank you for this new day and a new week.
I confess that I’m overwhelmed when I look at my to-do list.
There are tasks on it I’m not very good at.
Some of them I will have to do for the first time.
It makes me nervous just thinking about it.
I’m afraid to start.
God, I need You help, Your guidance.
I pray that fear will not keep me from doing what needs to be done.
I pray that whenever fear wants to stop me I still press on and finish the tasks.
Your Word reminds me not to fear, You are with me. Thank you!
You know the outcome of this week.
You see the end from the beginning.
I pray that I would follow your leading.
Thank you, God, for knowing You are with me.
Thank you for the promises You’ve given me.
And thank you for past experiences of Your faithfulness that give me courage to step out and tackle whatever comes my way this week.
“Let all that I am praise the LORD;
With my whole heart, I will praise His holy name.
Let all that I am praise the LORD;
May I never forget the good things He does for me.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death and
crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!”
See Psalm 103:1-5
