Steady my heart, Lord. Life has been overwhelming.

“My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast and confident!
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises [to You]!” ~ Psalm 57:7, AMP

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:58, NKJV

“Cast your cares on the Lord
    and he will sustain you;
he will never let
    the righteous be shaken.”~ Psalm 55:22, NIV

When I Look to You, Lord, I Grow Stronger

Lord, Your lovingkindness is better than life. Your love sustains me, comforts me, and gives me the strength to endure. Steady my heart, Lord. Life has been hard and I’m feeling overwhelmed.

When I look to You I grow stronger. When I speak truth over the enemy’s lies, anxiety withdraws into the shadows from whence it came.

And Your peace returns.

Steady my heart, Lord.

You always know how to steady my heart. Thank You. I am in this world, not of it. You made me to be the head and not the tail. The enemy is under my feet and, because of Jesus, I sit in heavenly places with You. You call me daughter …

Every time I sit still long enough to remember that, I am overcome with thankfulness. I square my shoulders and become the victor, not the victim. If You are for me, who can be against me? You are a shield about me, surrounding me with songs of deliverance. My heart hears the sound and my faith rises up.

You enlighten the eyes of my heart to see the angel armies surrounding me to help me, to defend me, to shelter me against the onslaught of the enemy.

Steady my heart, Lord.

I am forever grateful. Here lately, I’ve been very thankful that this old world is not my home — I am merely passing through. In my journey, let me be Your light. Let me bring love where there is hatred. Let me bring hope where there is despair. Let me bring peace where there is chaos and confusion.

When You steady my heart — when I look to You so that You can steady my heart — I can walk confidently into my battles and I can be Your representative to this hurting world. That is my heart’s desire.

You Steady my Heart, Lord, Like No One Else Can

Consume me with Your love. Speak peace over me, Lord … Your perfect, Shalom peace.

In Jesus’ Name, I pray,

Amen — let it be so
