This week, I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed.  It seems I'm stretching myself a bit thin and it's causing me some stress.  Plus, it's kept me from blogging!  So I today, I'm slowing down a bit and trying to breathe more. Here is my breath prayer today as I continue to pray the scriptures.

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you."  Isaiah 26:3

Lord of all,

Thank you for your gift of peace.
Help me to lean on you more 
especially when I'm overwhelmed.
Help me to slow down 
and focus 
first on YOU
so that everything else
will fall into perfect place
and your peace will enfold me.



  1. Sherri, I understand feeling overwhelmed--many times I feel overwhelmed and anxious about so many things. It can be paralyzing! Refocusing my thoughts to focusing on the Lord does seem to help, so does worshiping and praising the Lord for EVERYTHING. The battle is real and it can be a daily one, too!


    1. I agree! My being overwhelmed is from my overextending myself... sometimes I really need to learn the art of saying no, mostly to myself! LOL

      Have a beautiful weekend!
