There’s this song by Anne Murray, an old song, called “Lord, I Hope This Day is Good.” It begins that way and then continues… “I”m feeling empty like you knew I would. I should be thankful, Lord, I know I should, but Lord I hope this day is good.”
That’s the best way to explain how I’ve been feeling this week. I was going to post the song, but to be honest the rest of the song really doesn’t fit my mood or life right now! Ha! But just this part… I feel it.
I’ve had an ear infection for three weeks that just won’t respond to antibiotics… 4 doctors and 4 medicines later and I’m still in pain…
That’s my biggest complaint, I guess. It’s just hard to stay up and at ’em when you’re in pain and also drug down by tons of antibiotics and headaches from the ear pain and pressure as well. I’d rather be in bed.
Who I am kidding… I’m typing this in bed! lol! But, soon, I”ll be out and headed to work and I’m hoping for a good day.
And it’s not that things are bad. It’s not that I’m depressed or ungrateful or have terrible things happening in life right now… no, none of that. Life is good.
I’m just worn down from having a terrible nasty infection for three weeks, going strong. So… a good day, please, Lord. 🙂
And I do believe God is ok with any type of prayers. Big ones, small ones, ones that make sense, ones that don’t. Ones that we understand, ones that come out all jumbled and confused. He understand. He gets it, hears us, understands us, and cares.
So I can ask for a good day. No big deal. I can tell him that I’m feeling empty and worn out. He hears me, He understands, He loves me.
Give your prayers up to God today, too friends. Whatever it is – big or small, normal or confusing, whether you know the words or not, just send it on up and let’s get on with a good day.
"Lord, I Hope This Day is Good.
I'm feeling empty like you knew I would.
I should be thankful, Lord, I know I should,
but Lord I hope this day is good."
