It happens to all of us ... we wake up with a dark cloud hovering over us. We shrug it off, crawl out of bed and begin our day.  Unfortunately, that cloud stalks us every second, minute and hour. No matter what we do, we can't seem to shake it. Pressure is building up behind the weakening dam in our eyes that is threatening to rupture, releasing torrents of tears.

I'm not a theologian by any means, but I believe days like this emerge because we've neglected our prayer life.  Jesus misses us.  Next time we wake up with that dark cloud hovering, let us pray:

Good morning most merciful Jesus,
Let your light shine through this threatening darkness.
Forgive me my neglect.
I've missed you too.



  1. Some Christians have depression caused by chemical imbalances that can be corrected with chemicals, but most of us just get blue sometimes, and yes, it's usually when we've forgotten to be in God's presence - an absolute must for any communicator for Christ! Thanks for the reminder, Patti. I'll highlight your post on the Christian Poets & Writers blog

    1. Thanks Mary. God bless and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
