Be My Yes and Amen

Mt. JeffersonThis is one of those days where I feel as if I cannot go on.

It’s all so heavy, the burden so heavy.

“Come to me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

I am weary and heavy laden, Lord.  I feel as if I cannot go on.  The road stretches out before me with endlessness.  Endless caregiving.  Endless giving.  The boundaries of my days blur into each other and there is never a deep, stopping rest.

My children have needs I cannot meet right now, Lord.  I see it in their eyes and on their faces; I hear it in my own voice, I hear my inability to nurture, sometimes an inability to even be kind.  I am tired.  I am worn to the bone.  I am worn in my soul.  I am ragged.

This is a Sabbath and I need your Sabbath, I need it with a desperation, can you tell?  In you all the Father’s promises are yes and amen.  Be yes and amen to me today.

Be my yes and amen.
