thoughts on waking up today

I wake up and you are there

how else would I cope
how would I get through this time of year

life feels so much harder
the to do list feels like a mountain to climb
I get discouraged when I think of
all that I haven’t done
all that I need to get done
and the daylight hours being so few right now

I know I’m not alone
I wake up knowing that you’re there
and that you love me

how else would I cope

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
