I Haven’t Given up
I have seen too many people I care about been taken away by COVID.
I’ve been to too many gravesides services.
I’ve shed way too many tears.
I’m emotionally spent.
I haven’t given up.
I’ve faced the fact that my condition will be a part of my life more and more as I get older.
That means more meds and more setbacks.
I’m physically spent but I haven’t given up.
My responsibilities have shifted.
People need more of me and I don’t know how much more I have left to give.
I’m spiritually spent but I haven’t given up.
I know where my help comes from.
I know who restores my soul.
I know who gives me peace.
I know who gives me comfort.
Thank God I haven’t given up because He hasn’t given up on me.
