Each morning the light reminds me of Your Light, and I sip the crispness of it, letting the warm glow slide down my throat and dismantle the darkness that kept me from sleep.
Though my eyes remain heavy and my heart fretful over what I cannot control, I seek Your promised hope. Please create a change in me that shines outward like a blessing so all will notice Your Peace on my countenance.
The darkness lost already, though I fight on in Your armor. Carry the weight and lighten my load, Dear Lord. But if not now, show me how to lead others to Your Rest.
