Father, I confess to You and others that I have been lax in having my quiet time with You each morning since I have been sick. I purpose to get back on track Wednesday morning. My soul is as parched as my throat because I miss reading Your Word. I need Your Living Water to fill me back up. I have missed my times with You each day, and I know You've noticed my absence. I miss You, Lord. My times of prayer have been sporadic at best, a little here, a little there, throughout the day, and my nighttime prayers with You have been jumbled because of my mind. It's been racing due to all the decongestants. Help me get back on track, and stay there. Thank You for loving me and forgiving me. I rejoice that You are a God of second and on up to a trillion chances. Thank You for picking me back up and helping me pinpoint the disquiet in my heart. Settle me back into Your loving arms, dear Lord. I'm sorry I failed You and let others down by not living what I preach - that spending time in the Word daily is a must. Being sick is not a good excuse, Father, and I humble myself before You, asking in the blessed name of Your Son to hear my prayers to quench my thirst and forgive me. Amen.
