Dear Lord, sometimes I feel so tired.
In my fatigue, my faith dwindles.
In my weariness, my passions sleep.
In my daily busy-ness I tell myself I am serving You,
Yet at the end of the day I’m not sure whether I did.
But then You give me a word, or a thought, or a verse, or a song, or a sight –
From those around me whom I love or those around me whom I don’t even know.
You give me an opportunity to recognize Your Holy presence.
And I remember that I am Yours and You are my God – The One I’m trying to serve –
The God Who does not tire.
The God Who truly wants the best for me.
The God Who will carry me and give me all the strength I need to serve Him.
In this my faith is strengthened and my passions awake!
I will praise You, and worship You, Oh, merciful and gracious Lord of all!
