“Convincing work is the Spirit’s work; he can do it effectually, and none but he.” Matthew Henry
 
I have trust issues. I know that I have to trust You with my kids, my job, my finances, my health, my marriage, yet I decide to step ahead of you and speak. So often I make a mess of it all.
I tend to create chaos.
You create peace.
Lord, help my unbelief.
 
Why do others only seem to see my nicely put-together life? I tell others to trust You, but I tend to find myself doing things to help You. I tend to create chaos. I must not believe that convincing is the Spirit’s work. So often I decide to step ahead of You and speak.
Lord, help my unbelief.
 
I DO NOT have it all together. Some days I feel like one thread from becoming totally unraveled and other days the unraveled threads are miles apart and I am walking around discombobulated trying to find a way to put the pieces back together.
I speak and tend to create chaos.
You create peace.
Lord, help my unbelief.
 
My life is messy.
My life is unraveled.
My life is broken.
 
I want to say, ‘I hope you can relate’, but that is a terrible thing to say. But I know some of you can relate.
 
I desperately want peace.
But somehow, I tend to create chaos.
Somehow, I tend to create the whirlwind.
Somehow…
 
Because I do not surrender.
Because I do not bow the knee.
Because I have trust issues.
 
I foolishly lift my head and speak more than bow my head in prayer.
I have trust issues.
Lord, help my unbelief.
