Jesus, we’re tired. So tired. Forgive us for letting the craziness of December crowd out Your voice. Please, please renew the thirsty places in our lives. Help us to drink deeply of You when we feel spiritually parched. Give us a new perspective of You as we head into the new year. Help us become an anticipating people, those who stand on tiptoes waiting to see You move.Help us become a welcoming people who let You into even the darkest crevices of our lives. Shine, Jesus, shine. Forgive us for loving the darkness more than loving You. Amen.
