My minivan this Tuesday…hot yoga gear, bikes still in the car from Sunday’s ride and strewn candy wrappers.
Every week, Emily P. Freeman hosts #ItsSimplyTuesday Instagram photo posts where everyone can share their ordinary Tuesday’s. Tuesday is ordinary, but it’s where our life is lived, inbetween Sunday bike rides and weekend car rides where kids eat candy and leave wrappers behind.
So, even though it isn’t Sunday (beginning of the week) or Monday (beginning of the work week) in honor of #ItsSimplyTuesday, I’m offering a prayer for the rest of the week.
It’s Tuesday and our week is too full already.
Over scheduling, fast approaching deadlines and just remembered school projects crowd into our already filled out planners.
We feel overwhelmed and underprepared. And we admit we feel a bit unloving towards our spouse and children.
Lord, help us extend mercy to our spouse and children and help them meet their goals.
Give us grace to let go of our inked agendas and make room for Your agenda, Your priorities this week.
Lord, help us to enjoy these busy moments and hectic schedules in this season of our life and to relax our faces and smile. Give smiles to our loved ones and smiles to strangers.
Lord, remind us that You speak in the still and quiet moments and lead us to those quiet places to hear Your voice.
Thank You for Your Kindness, forgiveness and every good gift You give us through Your abundance and the good gifts we enjoy when we show Your love to those we meet daily.
Help us to become whom You have called each of us to be in Christ.
