When I woke up this morning, the last thing I wanted to do was to get out of bed.Â Every muscle in my body seemed to hurt.Â The house was so cold, and the bed was so warm.Â And I was TIRED, deep in my soul kind of tired.Â "Just five more minutes," I kept telling myself.
An hour later, I managed to roll myself out of bed and go to the kitchen for my "God time."Â While going over my prayer list, my mind kept drifting.Â My eyes kept drooping.Â Finally, I just put my head down on the table and muttered "I am so tired, God."Â I kept my head down for a few minutes, and when I looked up the sky was a brilliant shade of deep rose pink.Â I know God heard me.
That was about five minutes ago.Â The color has faded and soon the sun will break over the mountains.Â Another day will be here.Â But today, I will be a little stronger.Â Today will be a little easier.Â Today I know my God is by my side.
Thought for the Day: My strength is in the peace of the Lord.
Psalm 118:6a (KJV) "The Lord is on my side; I will not fear"
