Dear Blessed Lord Jesus, good morning. I love You, thank You, praise You and give You all the honor and glory for this new day as I confess that for too long, I have depended on my own ability and tried to work out my own problems in my own self with the wrong kind of strength. I thank You, Lord, that You care so much for me that I can cast all my burdens on You and give You all the hang-up’s, hurts, disappointments, and worries, that seem to be flooding my soul today. I thank You that I have Your word and promises that never fail me. I am weak by myself but with Your strength I can give up every anxiety to You and let it go in Your hands. Assist and protect me to understand the reasons for Your chastening in Your Precious Name Jesus Amen.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:6-8 NIV
