The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?

Wait for the Lord;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;

Oh holy Father,

I seek you as I feel completely overwhelmed. I do not have the time or energy to sustain myself. Everything tells me there is too much to do.

Won’t you help me, oh Lord?

Show me your hand in control of all things. Let me rest in you. May I trust that you give me eternal blessings always. You alone are sovereign. You alone are the Lord.

So I stop at this moment and look for you, to feel the soft breeze of your merciful love carrying my worries away. You transform me. You change my heart.

I rise up strong again, in CHRIST. I face the world, my path straight and firm, with faith in your Son Jesus.

In his great name I pray,

    • Your words are an incredible testimony to me Leigh. Despite such hardship, you continue to seek and be nourished by the love of the Lord Jesus. As you know, he sees your suffering. He has suffered with you every step of the way. I can’t even begin to understand your relationship with the Lord, but it is genuine and powerful. And you even continue to bless others. This inspires me to trust and give more.

      May the Lord heal you, inside and out. May he pour out his loving Spirit over you to protect, bless and restore. May God lift up your natural defenses while he continues to work his supernatural wonders in your body, mind and spirit. In Jesus name, Amen.

      Glory to God for your life and testimony Leigh. I will be praying for you and yours every day!
