I'm tired God. Help me to feel grateful in the small things and love.

Hey God,

It's me, Courtney. Today wasn't one of my best days. I try to remember to always be thankful for waking up and getting to see a new day, but today I didn't feel so lucky. My children wanted to wake up happy and cranky at the same time and i just wanted to kill myself. 

I try to enjoy every moment with them but lately I haven't been feeling the joy. I have been feeling emptiness when I tell them I love them. I shouldn't be feeling like this, but I do. I need your help my God. I need your strength. I need your love. I need Your grace. 

Help me to enjoy them. They are only little once. They've done nothing wrong. They are learning how to express their emotions, and I'm not giving them a good example of how to express them. 

Help me to express my feelings better. Help me to be a better mom. Help me to love on them. Help me to enjoy the small moments. Help me to see them the way You do. I ask for patience, and deliverance from my temper and tantrums. 

Help me provide a safe space for my children to freely express their feelings. I don't want them to think they are wrong for just not having a good day. Help me raise them in a loving way that is not toxic.

 

 

In Jesus Name, 

Amen.
