Today is a worn-edges day:
energy is hard to find
a full-tank is a fond memory
joy is a far-off friend.
Worn and frayed, a scarecrow without its stuffing am I.
Then there’s YOU:
“in YOUR presence is fullness of joy.”
Remind me that today is just that, a day.
That this week is just that, a week.
Teach me that there are new morning mercies,
even at 3:19PM.
Clothe me in YOUR strength:
which neither frays nor wears.
Feed me with YOUR food:
which is to do YOUR will.
This we pray in the NAME of JESUS:
who leads from strength to strength,
and shares with us the fullness of GOD.
