Learning Objective: Learn and apply 5 ways to halt your hurry and resurrect more time for relationship with Jesus and those you love in the New Year.
Dear Lord, help me to halt my hurry. Life is flying by at such a fast pace that the things I value most are left in the dust storm of the hustle. I want to re-boot my focus on you in the New Year. Help me to halt my do-it-all mental compulsion that is robing me of the silent holy night experience of your presence in my life and therefore, my presence to the things I value most.
Dear Lord, help me to erase and replace negative behaviors fueled by the flesh with positive behaviors fueled by the Holy Spirit within me. Whatever I sow I will reap. I want to sow seeds that give birth to your love in and through me. Remind my mind that you adore me and that your love never fails. I know as I remember how loved and safe I am in you that will spill out into my behavior to those around me.
Remind my face that you adore me. Help me to have a reverential fear of you that causes me to toss every trigger in my life into your lap. Show me how to commit everything to you and to trust that you have my back. Lord, I want patience. The kind that knows you are working out everything for an ultimate good and you are in charge. Above all may I know how much you love me. May that knowing spill over into an ability to overcome evil with good. More of you God and less of me.
