Because He Lives...

Some days it feels like I can't go on.
I'm tired.

Life's burdens weight me down.
I'm weary.

The children's needs wear on me.
I'm worn.

There is no strength left to face another day.
I'm weak.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28

Psalm 121
I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?  
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.  
He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber; 
 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.  
The LORD watches over you--  
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;   the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.   The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;   
the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Life and its struggles can be overwhelming.  
At times it is exhausting.  
My body and mind need revived.  
 I go to my Maker seeking rest.

Amazed by Him who does not slumber or sleep.
My body so weak.
My God so strong.

Grateful to Him who watches over me,
The one who keeps me from harm,
The one who grants strength to the weary.

Because He lives I can face tomorrow.
