Steady my heart, clear my mind

Hello, Jesus.

I'm a bit scattered and rushed.

Stressed and overwhelmed.

But you already know that.

I'm turning to you because you're the only place to turn.

You have the words of life.

You know my future and my past.

Steady me, Lord.

Speak to me.

Re-orient me.

Calm me.

Help me see what you're doing in and around me.

I trust you,

and yet, I don't.

You know that about me--

it's so hard to believe that what I'm doing is right

when I don't see results.

But you are faithful. You are always faithful.

Steady my heart.

Clear my mind of the confusion and anxiety that the enemy plants in me.

Breathe in me and through me.

I want to be a whisper of your presence,

an image of your Son,

the breath from your lips.

Use me however you want 

and build a faith in me to endure what I don't understand.

In Jesus' name,


"He stilled the storm to a whisper;  the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind." (Psalm 107:29-31)
