Praise the LORD! For he has heard my cry for mercy. The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
Psalms 28:6-8 (NLT)
It is hard to relax. I mean really relax. Why is it? We say we have faith, and yet we are wound up tighter than a spring, ready to snap at the next bit of pressure. Perhaps it is because when it comes to living life on our own, we get in over our heads. We try, but life is so complicated. There are so many variables. The good news is that God never intended us to live life all by ourselves. He wants us to depend on Him. He wants us to live with His love and mercy helping us along the way. This is where fellowship with God is born. When we acknowledge that He is God, that He loves us and we begin to communicate with Him and share our inner struggles and needs. He hears us and gives us the help we need. God is pleased, and so are we. David knew this and proclaimed, “I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.” Today, relax, give it all to Him. Trust God. He will have mercy and help you.
Father God, I come and bring all my burdens to You. I am so tired of trying to fix everything myself. I need You. I ask You for mercy. Please help me today, I pray. In Jesus’ name.
