I’m tired these days.
My body has little energy.
My soul cries out for rest-
I’ve been going and going
and think I may be too far gone
from the One who matters most-
There aren’t enough hours in the day
It seems like
To dive deeply into His presence-
Like I used to.
My mind is numb and blurry when I get home
not wanting to exert itself.
A change must come because my spirit
Misses the relief it finds in my Beloved.
My soul years for the down comforter,
Plush pillows and flannel sheets
In the Master Suite at my Father’s house-
basking in the rays of His strength and endurance.
My eyes burn for beauty
A break from the harsh reality of this world;
To focus for one moment on a fluttering butterfly
And forget the web of the world in which it will soon be caught.
My heart grasps for more restoration
An exhausting but rejuvenating process.
She feels stagnant and restless-
Only my Father can bring her to flowing, quiet waters.
Let me curl up under the blanket of Your love.
Let my mind be peaceful and my dreams pleasant.
Let me see You in all things so I may follow You
humbly, willfully, and trustingly.
