The Strength of my Heart

“My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

Psalms 73:26 NASB

Father,

A shift in one’s career, finances, lifestyle or even in a daily routine, whether it was planned or not, is laborious to accept at times!

Transitions are quite a challenge the older we get.

If you would ask me, how is the new season going? I would honestly say, “It is going well yet I am worn out with all of the changes I’ve recently experienced”. I even wonder if I made the right decision. “Is it normal to doubt in the midst of life-altering beginning?”

Life changes will undoubtedly stir mixed emotions and ‘letting go’ will bring a sense of loss that needs to be dealt with one day at a time. It is okay to rejoice about opportunities and cry when reminiscing on treasured moments from the past.

Jesus understands. He has wept.

Lord, I’ve been reminiscing about unforgettable moments, and I ’ve been recently melancholic. Help me and settle my heart once and for all! I need a shift in attitude so I can successfully overcome emotional distress. Grant me the courage, inner strength and joy to move forward with the new journey.

You are the strength of my heart when I am weak!

I’m trusting in you, Lord, you are my anchor of Hope. I know there is a purpose behind doubt, loss, and fear. ”The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all” Psalm‬ ‭34:19‬ ‭NIV‬‬.

I may not like the uncertainties of today’s journey. But, I won’t be discouraged, anxious or distressed.

“Yes, living before your face is my saving grace!” (Psalms 43:5 TPT).

Take this heavy burden ‘off my shoulders’, doubt from my mind, and help me rest at night. Bring me joy in the morning, Lord.

I honor your celestial ways and will serve you faithfully one change at a time.

In Jesus’ name, I praise.

Amen
