“For God is not a God of confusion but of peace…”
1 Corinthians 14:33

I see every tear you cry and every heartbreak you feel. I know when pressure at school and at home seems too much to bear, when all your responsibilities mount up like a giant tidal wave, and it feels like there’s nowhere to run. Fear and confusion are not from Me. Don’t get so freaked out by all the deadlines that you can’t figure out what to do next. Tell Me about your day and what frustrates you. Then, together, we can plan out your tasks for today.

Now What? Pray: “Lord, help me see that how I spend my day is a reflection of what’s in my heart. Show me where I need to focus my time today, and exclude from my schedule anything that is not a priority. Give me the courage to say ‘no’ to requests for my time that fall outside your will or cause over-scheduling so that every moment of this day will count in service for you.”
