I am so tired tonight. I feel I’ve run a race and stumbled desperately all the way, but still haven’t reached the finish line. My heart and mind are bruised and aching as much as my body. My spirit is suffering and I can’t find even an inadequate reason to explain why. I want to run to you and hide within your arms and just rest until my weary soul is made anew. I want a healing so profound I am able to start the race over and run it again until I finish it. Lift me, Holy Father, I beg you earnestly. Lift me, and cleanse every part of me from the influence of this world. My mind and heart are so overcome with burdens and care and I need you, Lord to take them all. My bones are breaking with the load. Strengthen my heart, I ask and help me carry on to serve you. You alone are worthy of my every breath of life and devotion. Please help me Father, to carry on.
