I always feel like I’m complaining about not having enough energy. I am chasing and caring for my kids… So I am exerting energy. I just seem to lay them down (finally, and thankfully all at the same time) for a nap and then have no more energy for myself.
I need more physical and mental powers! I need more physical and chemical resources! I already had coffee, today I’m coming off 8 hours of sleep, I have been taking my vitamins and eating well. I just have my moments of mental and physical discouragement… I can’t keep up.
Psalm 121:1-3 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.
The Lord is my helper, he is not slumbering. He is my strength, he is my everything. So today why do I feel so tired? I think it’s because I don’t ask.
Lord, please be my strength, because I don’t have anymore. Wake me, and shine upon me. Awaken my soul, awaken my eyes. Keep my mind stayed zealously on you. Pour out the energy I need to get through today and this week. Mute the voice of the condemner, that I would see your Grace and that nothing he’s condemning me of even matters in the scope of salvation. Thank you for giving me a gracious husband who doesn’t care that the house is a mess… But please give me what I need today to do what I can around the house. Thank you for your faithfulness and your love for me and that you hear my prayers and that you are eager to interact with me. I love you Lord. Amen
