I felt led to write about this today. It’s seems like everyone around me is stressing about something lately. Work, school, family, sports, etc. Just worried that things won’t get done in the time that it needs to. Stressed that things won’t go as planned. Wondering how you will get your kids from here to there and also get things done at your house and at work. Just one thing after another. Things continue to add up on your plate. How the heck will you get through this week?!
Have yall ever heard that saying or seen that meme, “God give me patience, cause if you give me strength, Imma hurt somebody!” Ha! I feel like this is appropriate for this week’s post. I get that things are crazy right now. I get that you are stressed to the max, and if someone were to say the wrong thing you could possibly go off! Before you do that…what I want you to do right now at the beginning of your week is to take a minute and JUST BREATHE! Before anything is able to get you off on the wrong foot, just breathe. There is a song with this title by Johnny Diaz and I will attach it so you can listen after you finish reading this. I love this song. Mainly because it reminds me to stop and breathe (obviously), but to come and rest and leave everything at the feet of Jesus. That is the chorus of the song.
Breathe, just breathe
Come and rest at my feet
And be, just be
Chaos calls but all you really need
Is to just breathe
At whatever point you read this, I want you to take just a minute and breathe. Lay everything at the foot of the cross and just be. Things will get taken care of. Everything will work out, one way or another. There is nothing that He cannot handle. So, before you dive into your crazy and hectic week, I challenge you to take just a minute or two and give it to Jesus.
Lord, we can’t do this life on our own. We need you! I pray for any and everyone that is expecting a chaotic week ahead. I pray that you give them peace in the most sensitive times. The time when they need to feel your presence the most, I pray that you make it known! Cover them this week, Lord! Let them take a minute, or even a few seconds to just breathe and lay everything at your feet knowing that your are in control!
In Jesus Name…Amen!!
