Pause, and Ask God!


As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action. We constantly remind ourselves we are no longer running the show, humbly saying to ourselves many times each day “Thy will be done.” We are then in much less danger of excitement, fear, anger, worry, self-pity, or foolish decisions. We become much more efficient. We do not tire so easily, for we are not burning up energy foolishly as we did when we were trying to arrange life to suit ourselves.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT

 

Father God help me to pause when I’m agitated or in the midst of an emotional storm.  I pray Father that you would remind me of your tender care and guidance.  I pray that as I pause and acknowledge your presence in my heart and life that you will show me the right actions to take and the right words to say.  I pray that you season my speech with grace and may everything I do and say bring glory to you. In Jesus Name, Amen
