I praise you and thank you for tender care,
your love and gentleness wrapping around me,
bringing comfort to my body, soul, and spirit.
I thank you for your rest when I feel weak,
thank you that you’re not the one that pushes,
rather it’s me,
so I lay down my own expectations, to-do lists, and pressure,
and just breathe,
resting in your hands,
now aware of your presence,
feeling the anxiety drain from my muscles,
and relief fill my cells.
In my weakness, be strong and rise up within me Lord through this day.
Let it be your Spirit, life, words, love, wisdom, grace, and strength
to minister to my heart and those around me,
that I may decrease so you will increase
and I can still be a faithful witness to your beauty and righteousness.
I’m unable to go forth without your strength and power,
your grace and life,
go before me and rest on me Lord,
I praise you that I have all I need in you for life and holiness,
I have you.
I bless you Lord.
