I received this post in an email and found it very inspirational. When things are not going the way you want, just turn it all over to God:
This is _______________. Thank you God for blessing me to see another day. God, I come before you this morning with feelings that have begun to consume me. Lately, I’ve felt overwhelmed. I feel sad. I am confused. I’m feeling angry. I’ve become bitter. I feel discouraged. I feel hurt. I feel abandoned. I feel taken for granted. I feel unloved. My soul is weary. As these feelings deepen within me, I am beginning to feel lost. Who am I? I don’t recognize me! I have tried to figure it out on my own, and I receive what I now know, is only a temporary fix, because these feelings always resurface. This place is not where I desire to be Lord, so this morning, “oh my Lord, my precious Lord………………. I SURRENDER:
I surrender my husband/wife and trust you to restore what has been lost. We are slowly becoming strangers. I feel alienated. The ability to talk with each other has become strained. The love we once basked in seems like a distant memory. Bless my marriage dear God, that it be restored to what you would have it to be.
I surrender my relationship that has entered troubled waters. It seems like there is trouble throughout this relationship that I’ve invested so much into. Bless me Lord that I trust you to do what you desire to do. If this relationship is for me, I trust you to restore it better than it was. If it is not for me, I trust you to remove me from it and give me what I need to press forward.
I surrender my child(ren) and trust you to give me discernment in all areas of their lives, as well as the wisdom to guide them accordingly.
I surrender my finances and trust you to provide where there is lack.
