Quick prayers before bed

Once again I’m trying to do it all and I know I can’t. I haven’t dug myself into a pit yet…but I know you know that I will. Please don’t let me do it this time. I’ve learned my lesson enough to know that you should take the wheel now…BEFORE…I go crash and/ or trap myself under something heavy.
Lord, show me where you want me to go and who you want me to go there with. Show me what to do when I’m in a jam and tell me what to say when I’m speechless. Give me words to write when I hit a block and remind me every once in a while to take a look at my own story instead of working on someone else’s.
I pray that I’ll remember that I can’t make everyone happy and I can’t resolve all hard feelings. I can’t spend every second loving everyone that I can see needs love or helping those that need help. Help me to take things one at a time. I pray that I’ll remember I’m not super woman and that I can’t fly at lightening speed to be everywhere at once. Oh, and Lord, please help me remember to eat and sleep. And I pray for everyone else who feels the same way. The ball is in your court, God; help me keep it there.

    “We should think of [our neighbor’s] good and try to help them by doing what pleases them. Even Christ did not try to please himself.” Rom. 15:2-3 (CEV)
    This has gotten me through tough junk lately. Who said it was gonna be fun. . . or easy?

    you’re my shining star!
    Despite ALWAYS trying to do EVERYTHING, you are an inspiration to those of us who try not to do everything. Every quarter you take on at school, you impress me once again at how much you can actually do. I don’t know how you do it…but I guess you were made for that. Good luck with another quarter at school where you take on even more projects, jobs, homework, etc. I’ll be praying for you!
