Dear Heavenly Father,
Today starts a new schedule. A schedule that I am afraid will kick my butt. I know that it is part of your will for me to be in this cohort program; however, the next 2 weeks I will have to depend on you. My worries and anxiety are getting the best of me. 2 nights of my week are going to be spent in a cold, gray building...away from my children. The homework is long and tedious...which will consume other nights of the week. I pray that when I start to get stressed, sad, frustrated, or any other feelings that get in my way of our relationship, that I will pause and crawl into your lap for rest. I pray that I use my time wisely and let go the things that don't matter, such as a clean house. Don't let my pretend image of "everything is put together in my life" get the in way of reading books with my children, finger painting, tummy time, cuddling with my husband and taking moments of quietness to enjoy Your beauty.
Let your will be done,
Jodi
