Do Not Grow Weary
Sometimes I feel as if this verse was written just for me. I do get tired of trying to be "good." I get tired of trying to be the "bigger person." I get tired of biting my tongue when I just want to scream at someone. I get tired of feeling like I am always doing something for someone else, when it doesn't seem like anybody does anything just for me.
Imagine how Jesus felt. Imagine how He walked this earth knowing that He was the answer to all of the world's problem, and yet He was rejected. He was cursed, ran out of towns, denied by His own followers, betrayed by a disciple, beaten, crucified. And even through all of that He asked God to forgive the very people who had treated Him so cruelly.
"Lord, today I ask that You help me to be more like You. Give me patience, give me strength, and help me not to grow weary in living this amazing life You have blessed me with. I know You have a reward waiting for me that is beyond anything I can even imagine, if I can just cling to You, serve You, and not give up. Today I give every circumstance in my life to You. And I trust You to handle everything. Forgive me for all the times I've failed, all the times I've doubted, all the times I've tried to handle something on my own instead of laying it at Your feet. I love You Jesus. Amen"
