Head pounding and eyes matted shut,
With that groggy feeling, they open up.
Realizing that a new day has begun.
Mercy has granted a new beginning.
I am still alive and in the fight.
But there is no fight in me today.
So I seek Him first…
Thank you for this day.

Thank you for seeing fit to allow me to exhale, inhale, and stretch….
As my mind drifts to the list of things not accomplish, give me strength!
The fog that has entered evaporates with the sweetness of praise.
Remnants of position, power, and authority awaken from the sleep that attempts to assassinate destiny.
I arise ready to begin a new day!
