Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for sustaining me through these rough waters of hormone readjustment. I almost wish I could see a doctor and get some help, but I do know that YOU are my true physician, and you are more than capable of leading me, step by step, day by day, showing me what to embrace and what to avoid. Please help me become more and more stable and secure and nonreactive to all but your voice and touch. Thank you for making me yours, and accepting me how I am, while I am yet a frail and unsuccessful woman. Help me to see through YOUR eyes, Lord. Help me to be patient with myself and just keep clinging to you for support. Thank you, Jesus.

 
Isaiah 40:25-31 ERV

The Holy One says, “Can you compare me to anyone? No one is equal to me.”
Look up to the skies. Who created all those stars? Who created all those “armies” in the sky? Who knows every star by name? He is very strong and powerful, so not one of these stars is lost.
People of Jacob, this is true. Israel, you should believe it. So why do you say, “The LORD cannot see the way I live; he will not find me and punish me”?
Surely you know the truth. Surely you have heard. The LORD is the God who lives forever! He created all the faraway places on earth. He does not get tired and weary. You cannot learn all he knows.
He helps tired people be strong. He gives power to those without it.
Young men get tired and need to rest. Even young boys stumble and fall.
But those who trust in the LORD will become strong again–like eagles that grow new feathers. They will run and not get weak. They will walk and not get tired.

 
Lord, I am so puny and insignificant compared to stars and “armies” in the sky and all the other wondrous things you have created. And yet, I know you intimately care for me. I thank you for that, and I ask you to renew my strength, help me make it through these crazy days of premenopause when my body is changing and my hormones are making me a little crazy. Please let it be enough — even to my husband — that I hold my tongue and keep to myself and do my work. Please help them understand that I cannot always be energetic and playful and my typically bubbly self. Some days like today, I just want to be alone, as if to nurse my wounds. Thank you for being with me, Jesus. The presence of your Holy Spirit truly is a Comfort to me! 😀
