Dear God…

Dear God,

I’m begging you – please refresh my spirit. There is so much I want to do. There is so much I want to learn. But, my eyes are weary. I cannot stifle the yawn that interrupts my prayers, my studies, my writing. I have tried coffee, and more coffee, and the occasional extra-strength Excedrin. The caffeine is not working. I know I need to rest, but there just isn’t enough time to get it all done!

How do I do this, God? I know it is what you want for me – I can feel that much way down deep in my gut. Yet, I’m tired. And with tired come vulnerable. So, I look to those close to me for support that is not there. I expect their human hearts to lift me up like only you can. Please remind me of your strength. Infuse me with your energy. Restore my soul.

I give this all to you, God. I trust that you will give me all that I need to carry out your call to me. So, now I’m going to take a nap.

With thanks for your grace in my life,
