So Tired

So Tired

Lord.. I am so tired, so very tired.  How can I go on when there is nothing left?

Today I’m going to…

Give God all the weakness that I feel

I’ll praise His name, take a step and know His help is real

How many times do we feel that there is just no strength left to get through the rest of the day? So many times I have been discouraged, sick, overwhelmed, overworked and was sure that I just did not have the vitality within me to take even one more step.

Even when I am most tired, I try to remember to pray for strength, but there is more than that. Sometimes the answer is to rest. Not as in hiding in your bed from your responsibilities and burdens, but more in soaking up the love that God gives us so freely and letting it renew our strength, our spirit and our physical energy. God tells us to rest. Even God rested after finishing Creation. On the 7th day He rested. Remember that it is ok to take time to let God re-energize your body and spirit by basking in the overwhelming love that He has for each and every one of us.

 

1 Kings 5:4

But now the Lord my God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster.

Life Just Seems so Hard..

Lord.. Why must life be so very hard?

Today I’m going to…

Remember the times that I’ve come out on top with all the odds against me

Knowing You surround me with care; Your love and care enfence me

 

Yes… day to day, when we focus on how difficult life is, we feel it is too much to take. When, however, we remember the time that the car did not hit us, when we’ve passed through great illnesses and been ok, when we’ve gotten kindness from a stranger or suddenly something happens that we don’t expect in much-needed help, we know that Our loving Father is with us.

On that day when life is just too much and all you can do is think His precious name.. Love flows out and over us supernaturally, our comfort, our shelter, our joy.

 

Job 1:10Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.

Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed

Lord, I feel completely overwhelmed

Today I’m going to;

Pick a task and know that with You, it’s not too big

Compared to Your greatness, this task isn’t a forest, but a twig

When in the midst of the forest, it is easy to get lost in thinking about the magnitude of the forest and the innumerable trees; We may get glimpses of the sun shining through the tops of the trees, but it is our nature to worry about how we will ever get out of the tangles instead of just taking our very next step.

In fact, focusing on how lost we are can cripple us to the point that we cannot take a step in any direction. It is hard to know where to start when things seem out of control, whether it be taking care of your home, finances, family, a project at work, etc. Remember that Our Father carries our burdens with us and He is the compass that leads us, guides us and has planned our every moment of every day.

Ex 29:30  See; I am sending an angel ahead of you to guide you along the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared (for you).
