Juggling the Kids’ STUFF

As I finalize plans for the coming school year, I’m often overwhelmed! There’s so much to do, so many different things to juggle, and so many ways to mess it all up. I can’t be the only feeling this way!

Lord, be with all of us parents as we plot out our plans and help us keep those plans in check with You. Grant my fellow parents and I peace and success – whatever that may look like. Bless our children with your love above all, and then a little bit of learning to help make life go well with them. Sprinkle in even more love and a lot of fun too. Thank you, Jesus, for delighting in each of us so we can delight in You as we go about life, not overwhelmed but free.

Leaders and Volunteers at Church

I got to join a gathering of folks who love Jesus and serve the community through their own awesome and unique ways at CrossPoint last night. So many people! It was a fun gathering, and I’m so very grateful for all the people that “bring it” to make church happen. We are the church. Thank you, Lord, for empowering us with your love!

Prayer for Emotional Roller Coaster

​Dear Lord, remind me to pause before I react. Sometimes the stresses of life pull at my emotions, which cause me to have reactions that tear at my relationships. Please forgive me for poor reactions in my past. Thank You for second chances. Thank You for the way You prepare my heart for everything that I’ll be facing today, tomorrow and in all my tomorrows to come. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
