Trying to escape stress, stress of life, mainly stress at work.
I run, but I stumble, and stress tackles me.
So I run to God, to Jesus’ Spirit within me.
Surrender to Jesus and His peace; that’s my soul’s desire.
Yet surrender requires humility, so now I’m running to that.
Then this morning, dark MONDAY morning… something new.
My mind fell into that old stress-pit of brooding over Monday.
Oh how I dread Monday’s.
But then God gave me that “something new,” a new thought.
And I started praying for people at work.
Everyone, especially those who push my buttons and set me ablaze in the stress-inferno.
There’s peace in prayer.
There’s compassion in prayer, even for the button-pushers.
Monday doesn’t feel so bad now.
Monday can be exciting, and maybe fun.
For this Monday I go to work with God.
And we will pray for my co-workers.
While in the midst of that stress-pit of work, I’ll pray for the button-pushers.
Dear Jesus, thank you.
Let’s go pray Your grace upon everyone we meet.
And please help me show them Your love and humility.
