I am tired today Father
worn out and exhausted.
I am stretched out emotionally from end to end.
My energy level is low
Going to work makes me sigh
I am focused today on family
The ‘what if’s’ of it all
I need Your strength
to help me get through this day.
I am grateful for the words and actions of love
shown to me
but I know that I live in these moments alone.
And yet I know that I am not alone
You are with me
and that gives me hope.
So in the middle of this week
at the beginning (for me at least) of the day
I come to You
and I ask for strength that I do not have
to do what I need (and want) to do.
Good and Gracious Father
You will be honored and praised
and others will be reminded that
You are a God
who does not leave us alone
in the midst of
and this season of life.
