Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves. PSALM 127:1-2

 Dear heavenly Father, I love how you remind me that I do not have to work at life as if it all depended upon me.  You are always at work and you are the captain of the ship.  What I struggle with is finding the balance between working hard at my various callings and resting enough because I know that you are the big X factor.  Help me to find joy in my work and family responsibilities as well as a peace in quiet reflective rest.  In both work and rest, stay by my side and fill my soul with your grace.  Without you I cannot do either.  AMEN

"God has given us a lot of things to do but being anxious over any of them is not one of them."
