Praying through the heaviness

Lord, my heart is heavy. A rock sits on my shoulders, a weight presses against my chest. But you already know that. You feel it with me, the pressure of success, the fear of failure, pain, and loss. But I choose to trust in your will and your way--at least, I'm trying to trust you! Carry me through this
time of heaviness. Lift my arms. Support me in the strong circle of your embrace. Maybe you could even carry my burdens for me--just a few steps--as I realign myself to follow you. I know you'll protect and provide. Help me to trust your process, because it will not feel trustworthy. I love you, Lord. I believe you, and I praise your goodness! In Jesus' name, Amen.
