In the Morning

In the morning, when I rise 
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
Give me Jesus.
You can have all this world
But give me Jesus.
Bernice Johnson Reagan

As I fixed my breakfast this morning, D asked me if I was okay. I simply said, “It’s just like you have to re-process it again every single morning.” Quietly he responded, “I know…” When I do not have time in the mornings to think, I usually have hard days, because it takes me a long time in prayer and in the Word to have the strength to get going on my day. All I can do is ask for more of Him and less of me. 
As I looked for a sweet picture of my baby girl, I came across the ones of her tiny little hands. The bruises on her hands make it hard, but it’s part of who she was. I tend to only want to show the pictures where she looked peaceful, but this is truly what our days looked like with our baby girl. Lots of tubes, bruises, scars, and tears. Give me Jesus.
Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.
C.S. Lewis
