A Simpler Life
Life has gotten confusing, complex, and full of pressures, God. I am pulled this way and that by too many demands and desires.
It is impossible to be my best self in the midst of this. Yet it is also hard to know how to make life simpler.
Help me to choose, God. Everything I do seems like something I should do, and yet I know that if I do not stop doing some things I will be able to do nothing well.
And if I do not leave some peace and quiet to listen to you, I will fail you, myself, and others.
