Light

Remain in me, and I will remain in you (John 15:4; NLT).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31; NKJV).

I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! (Habakkuk 3:18; NLT).

 

Lord,
During meditation,
The longer I stay
In your light –

Resting,
Playing,
Dancing,
Or praying –

The stronger
And more joyful
I become.

Fatigue

Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak (Psalm 6:2; NLT).

Patient endurance is what you need now (Hebrews 10:36; NLT).

This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent (John 6:29; NLT).

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deuteronomy 33:27; NIV).

When I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10; NLT).

 

Lord,
Living with fatigue
Is very hard.

Please help me
To endure it patiently,

By trusting in
The one you sent,

And resting in your arms
Each day,

For with you, when I’m weak,
Then I am strong.

It doesn’t matter

The eternal God is your refuge (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

The Lord [is] strong and mighty (Psalm 24:8; NLT).

Your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48; NIV).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

 

Lord,
It doesn’t matter
That I’m old,
For you’re eternal.

It doesn’t matter
That I’m weak,
For you are strong.

It doesn’t matter
That I’m flawed,
For you are perfect.

It doesn’t matter
That I’m nothing –
We are one.

LIMITATIONS

For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10; NLT).


Father,
If I were young,
I would have energy
To spare –
As others do.

And if I were tall,
I could reach
High shelves –
As others do.

And if I were strong,
I could carry
Heavy bags –
As others do.

And if I were confident,
I could travel alone
Without stress –
As others do.

But I am old,
And small,
And weak,
And insecure.

Lord,
May I always remember
That when I am weak,
Then I am strong,
Because of you.

Help me to love
And serve you
In everyone I meet,
Despite my limitations.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
