Enough for Today

I wrote this back in September of 2011. I came across it recently and wanted to encourage those of you who are going through dark times.

the night is dark before me

though the sunshine streams in my window

the panic is barely being held at bay

though i sit on my bed, apparent calm marking my demeanor

desperation and defeat assault me

until You speak

Why am I in this place?

For the good of others.

while the realization brings a clearing to the fog

depression isn’t driven back very far . . .

I then went on to list those burdens that weighed me down: debt, chores, discontent. But then I came to a realization.

today i need

grace for today

provision for today

strength for today

direction for today

peace for today

These days things are much better, but I still must rest in the Lord and trust Him for today.
