Awaken the dawn
My spirit has been heavy and distracted all day, and I've been praying, talking to God about it, looking for the cues to follow. But it hasn't been easy.
Sometimes it's just a fight and the destroyer wants what he/it wants and he lingers all day, just on the edges of life, watching for opportunity. And you lean into God and it gets lighter, better, but not enough so that you can go about your business with ease.
So you spend the day as I have, kind of spiritually limping along, staying close to the range of The Light for safety sake, and you pray for the dawn to come and with it the help you need.
Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy!
I look to you for protection.
I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings
until the danger passes by.
I cry out to God Most High,
to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.
He will send help from heaven to rescue me,
disgracing those who hound me.
My God will send forth his unfailing love and faithfulness.
Wake up, my heart!
Wake up, O lyre and harp!
I will awaken the dawn with my song.
Time to get home and get some sleep.
