Lord, I’m broken.

You know all the ways and times I have suffered, torn inside, and in utter pain.
You know the deepest cries and longings of my heart.
You know the difficult journey I have traveled and the rough road I am trudging on right now.

I wish You won’t trust me with so much suffering, 
because I don’t know how long I could bear it before I completely get broken into pieces.

But You still do anyway.
And each day, I learn how to depend on You, praying in every possible way
…just because I’m broken.

Lord, I’m so tired.

Tired of all the weight that comes from submitting my mind and heart to your process of refinement.
I’m tired of fighting alone in the cold of this road to unknown.

I also get tired of always considering other people’s welfare before my own.
I am weary of getting up each day to make today great – what with all the internal turmoils I’m having.

But You know, Lord, how I still continue to stay on course, 
with Your help I keep fighting the good fight, and how much I am changed in the process
…even if I’m just oh so tired already.

Lord Jesus, please give me solace.

Soothe my soul with Your healing presence.
Warm my heart with Your loving embrace.
Cleanse my mind of all that is not pleasing to You because I just couldn’t handle it all.

Grant me the strength, Lord, 
so I may grow even more despite my suffering.
Oh God, please make my spirit whole.

Heavenly Father, please help me see myself 
the way You see me because I feel so inadequate at times, empty and needy too.

Please help me to see my situation 
from Your eternal perspective because I feel so caught up in the ambiguity and solitude of now.

Dear Lord Jesus, please heal me to wholeness.
