Forgive me for not taking the time to really meet with You in prayer, in Your Word, and in contemplation. Forgive me for not slowing down enough to enjoy Your creation, to notice the small blessings, and to be thankful for them. Forgive me for not being patient with You, for not trusting You enough to wait for Your way and Your timing in my life.
So many fears, concerns, and others things fill my time and my mind. But I want to be able to “set my mind on things above” and to "be still" in You, trusting that You are God and that You can handle my concerns. Help me to do that, Lord, so that I may know the peace and security of a life lived in reliance on You, and the joy of a life lived in communion with You.
