You are all that I’m made for.  I’m not made to excel in school, to make music, or to take pictures.  I’m made to worship you, to enjoy a relationship with you that surpasses all understanding.  Right now, I’m stressed by the amount of work I have to do.  Really stressed; I know I’m going to be up pretty late because of it.  But Lord, I wanted to spend this time with you.  I shouldn’t have to find time for you in the midst of schoolwork. I should base my schoolwork around my time with you.  Because I know my time with you is more rewarding and refreshing than anything.  Yeah, I’m gonna be tired as mess when I wake up tomorrow.  But Oh God, this is worth it.  I can’t live without time with you.  I mean, I can survive but I can’t live, thrive.  I need you or my life is colorless.  Your beauty penetrates my life and sets it aflame with Peace and Joy.  Lord, I pray for that peace and joy right now.  Strengthen me. 

You’re worth this :)
