A Kiss from Rose | Ain't You Tired Yet

I know I am not the only one who has heard their grandmother or mother say, "Ain't you tired yet?" Nope, I am not going to believe I am the only one. Well, sometimes in life, as we get older, we must say these things to ourselves. "Ain't you tired yet?" No, it may not be "proper" English, but it "sholl" fits the feeling (sholl is not proper either; however, it fits this statement best.

Sometimes in life, you get sick of yourself. Sick of the things that you do. Don't you get sick and tired of the repeated behaviors that you cried about time and time again? Well, "ain't you tired yet?" Are you not tired of sounding like a broken record to your friends, family, pastor, or anyone with two ears that will listen? Think about the reckless behaviors, playing victim, and the woe is me moments? Constantly doing the same thing, getting the same results, then crying about it. Are you attempting to self-sabotage your life? Even in that, "ain't you tired yet?" Are you not overwhelmed with regret for repeated behaviors that get you nowhere or with a negative result? Where is the love within yourself that will make you want to do better? Where is the actual acknowledgment and belief that Jesus loves you and would not wanting you to do these things to others or yourself? "Ain't you tired yet?" Some are wondering, tired of what, well it depends on the person, everyone has a thing.

Everyone gets tired of their crap, at one point or another. Changed behaviors are harder for some. Realizing the roots is even harder in some cases. Loving themselves is a whole different thing. We must have compassion and pray for them. Stand in the gap for something better. You had to get tired, do something about it, and I am sure someone was praying for you. Now, "ain't you tired of judging?" Now, let's start praying.


Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, we stand in the gap for those who are tired or should be tired. Whatever their thing is, forgive them for they need help, Your help. Place them on the right path and guide them along the way. When they desire to go back to wrongdoing, take the taste out of their mouth for it. Distract them from going the wrong way. Hold their hands, allow them to love themselves, and know that You love them. Grant them favor in the right places. Honor their midnight hour tears. Father, withhold your wrath from them. Allow them to walk into Your grace, mercy, and forgiveness. Cover the ones who took the time to stand in the gap with this prayer. Amen.
