Lord Jesus, you are the son of God. You said that with God nothing is impossible. I come before you to plead of you to give me the strength and patience in times of trial. I react to words that are thrown at me. This leaves a lot of bitterness and a feeling of low self-esteem. So the need to justify my reactions gains ground.
Like you, I am tempted to come to you and ask for this cup of the trial to be taken away from me.
But no, not my will but thine prevail.
You asked us to come to you with our burdens. You are the best carpenter. You promised us to design a yoke such as to make our burden light.
I come to you with my burden. Please help me, Lord.
I thank you, Lord, for gifting me this yoke. Amen.
