Prayer Pledge 2017: Day 9

The Epiphany has passed, the New Year feels a little less fresh, and real life seems to be crowding in for me. The sweet lull I had felt earlier this month has passed, and everything is running full speed ahead. All I want is a little more space and time for calm.

The reality of my life right now — and probably the lives of many of us — mean that that space and time is hard to come by. But that doesn’t mean I can’t find God on my busy Monday. I remember what I so often have been told to do: Offer it up.

My frustration: offering it up.

The noise: offering it up.

My stresses, sorrows, loneliness: offering it all up.

What can you offer up today? What can Jesus redeem in your day?

or, simply answer:

Did you pray today?

    I offer up the physical pain , my plans as they often don’t happened the way I envision and Iet frustration creep in and my inner talk so I can fully be present today to those little faces around me and let God guide me on the rest.

    To help me be able to see and recognize Him in every way of my day.

    I have always been having a hard time with understanding the meaning of offering up our sorrows. I understand offering up our joy, love and glory, but not our sorrows. Can anyone explain the meaning?

    Uncertainties of my future, loneliness, stubborn will, frustrations at myself that I can’t be a people pleaser all the time
