Dear God,

I know you didn't promise life would be easy, but really? 
I know you said you'd never leave me but its really hard to feel you right now.
I know you told me you'd never give me more than I can handle....but I think you have too much confidence in me.
I know I need an attitude adjustment, but tonight, and this week, and this month have just been really HARD, God. 
Too hard?

I don't think so. I'm still kickin, so obviously I can take a few more kicks. Just take it easy for a little while, would you?
I love you.
I can't wait to see you someday.

As I search for something fresh to say in the midst of all my overused Christian rhetoric and reasoning, I'm starting to wonder if the repetition of such sayings is what helps them stick.  God is good all the time, no matter how many times I upset Him and make stupid decisions and go back on my word and say mean things and forget about Him in my daily routine. But the more I say God is good all the time, the easier it is to remember when I'm going about my little bustling activity-filled day.  Each time I'm able to remember it, or even just think His name, the more ready I am to make a right decision, pick the positive, Godly choice over the one that's unwise. So I'm not discounting the cheesiness these days.
I've got the magic in me....thanks to Him who gives me strength.
Homework times.
