Surrendering Thoughts and Prayers

My thoughts have been going sort of like this, I’ll have multiple “Lord have mercies” in one day and a whole lot of “Lord help” the next. This week has been extremely tough and it’s not quite over. I had to stop and just ask God’s help. Have you ever had to do that? Just stop. Ask God. Help Lord. Our help will surely come. I am a witness to it. When things are off pitch in your life just stop and ask God for help. We must learn to obey the stop signs in life and sometimes it can be hard to recognize them. Crazy situations and conversations, chaos and short fuses are all stop signs for me. I’m learning to ask God for help. I am sharing a portion of my personal prayer this week. I am sure God will hear us when we reach out and surrender all.

Lord help me surrender to you when everything seems to be going wrong and it looks like nothing is working out. Help me surrender to you when life gets busy and there’s not enough time to do the important tasks. Help me surrender to you when things and people just don’t make sense. Help me surrender to you when trouble comes, when the news is not good, grief strikes and fear stops me in my tracks. Help me surrender to you when I don’t understand how I’m going to make it through another week or another day. Lord help. I am confident that You Lord are my help.

The next time things start spinning around out of control just stop and ask God for help. He’s sure to be a very present help in your time of need.

Note To Self

Do you ever make mental notes?  Do you tell yourself things to do?  It’s important to have reminders as I often feel like too many things are going through my mind and my brain feels overloaded.  I love this scripture in Psalm 37:5  (NLT) which says Commit everything you do to the Lord, Trust him and he will help you.  I need this scripture as a daily reminder and note to self.   Note to self: Commit everything not just some things. What scripture notes can you make to yourself today?
