My prayer today...

Papa,

This is Your daughter. I am having a bad day. I feel overwhelmed and inadequate. I want to be everything to everyone, but all I feel like is a failure. I disappoint the ones I love, the ones You gave me to care for, I must be a terrible disappointment to You too when I feel so lost and don't immediately look to You and count on your strength. I'm so sorry. Please forgive me for my arrogance. I know I can accomplish nothing without You. You are so loving and want only my happiness and peace. You hold all the answers and are waiting so patiently for me to ask for help and then listen to Your leading. Papa, would it be okay if I just sat here awhile with You. I just want to lean on You.


As these words were leaving my heart, this song came into my heart, a song I have loved for many years. Papa's answer.

When the weight of all my dreams

Is resting heavy on my head,
And the thoughtful words of help and hope
Have all been nicely said.
But Im still hurting,
Wondering if Ill ever be
The one I think I am.I think I am.

Then you gently re-remind me
That youve made me from the first,
And the more I try to be the best
The more I get the worst.
And I realize the good in me,
Is only there because of who you are.

Who you are...

And all I ever have to be
Is what you've made me.
Any more or less would be a step
Out of your plan.

As you daily recreate me,
Help me always keep in mind
That I only have to do
What I can find.

And all I ever have to be
All I have to be
All I ever have to be
Is what you've made me.

All I Ever Have to Be by Amy Grant


Many blessings to you today,
