Have you ever had days where your entire day is full of events and deadlines to meet? You felt like, you didn’t have the energy to get the work done. I feel like that a lot! Don’t we all? Hard work pays off, but hard work is nothing without prayer.
I make that statement because a lot of days I’m tired . Go to work at 3 a-m get off from work, go to school, go back to work, work on side projects and survive sometimes off of 5 or less hours of sleep. Half the time I don’t where I’m going to get the energy from. That’s where prayer comes in. You see every morning before I go to work, I have long talks (prayer) with God. I ask Him to give me the strength and energy to make it through each day. I also ask Him to direct me in the right path each day. I can honestly say, He hears my prayers, because when I’m tired and down, He gives me a second wind. The energy He gives me helps me survive each day. Not only does He give me energy, but peace in knowing that everything will be completed in due time.I also have a strong support system in my life. If I’m not praying for myself, they’re praying for me. We pray for each other, and sometimes that’s exactly what it takes. Can you see now why I say hard work pays off, but it’s nothing without prayer. If not, let me go a little bit deeper….
Have you ever worked really hard on something, and no matter how hard you worked on it, you felt like you were getting no where, expect getting more tired? You tried it the next day and the same thing happened. Don’t get me wrong there are energy drinks,but they only give you energy for a limited time. Coffee, energy drinks and bars don’t always work for me, but I can’t say that about prayer. I need my natural fix, which is why I say asking God to give me the strength and energy to make it through the day is my natural energy….I encourage you to try it or if you see someone else who’s tired all the time say a little prayer for them. You will be surprised at the difference you have made in their lives with a simple prayer.
In a nutshell prayer still works! Sometimes you have to work hard to get the things you want, but prayer can definitely get you through it and to it. You just have to have FAITH and continue you pray faithfully! Enjoy your day! ❤
