a prayer for today.


Today, I am tired –
Tired of the bullshit of yesterday,
Tired of the uncertainty of tomorrow.

But You are with me today,
You know my yesterday,
And You command my tomorrow.

So, I will trust and rest in You –
Trust in the sovereignty of Your plans,
Rest in the promise of Your love.

Tomorrow, I will get up,
And I will fight as You’ve taught me how –
With mercy, with grace, with love.

Lord, today I need Your Spirit;
Mine isn’t strong enough.
