The post below is one I wrote some time ago, but I felt like I was supposed to re-post it today. Many of you have been feeling exhausted. Worn out. Wiped. Unable to get out of your own way, in many cases.
Beloved, I understand. Since I asked for prayer two weeks ago, I’ve crashed myself. I know this is an answer to prayer, because I’ve been getting rest by default–unable to get much done because I’ve just been too tired.
I can feel my body starting to come back into a healthy alignment, though, and I know this is an answer to your prayers. (Thank you for praying for me!)
If you’re tired too, please read the post below. It’s time to get some rest, beloved. You can’t keep going all the time and expect it not to catch up with you. December can really throw people off their regular schedules anyway, and if you were tired going into December, then it gets even worse.
I love you all. Get some rest today, okay?
Are you tired? Not only physically, but spiritually?
Do you feel worn out and fearful? Are you struggling to believe God’s promises–promises that you’ve always been able to believe in before?
There is a simple solution. This solution may not work in every case, but I believe it’s a prescription that will cure many cases. It has just cured me.
You see, for several weeks, I have been so tired–both physically, mentally, and spiritually. I haven’t felt good when I get up in the mornings. I have crashed at the end of the day. My schedule is as busy as ever, but instead of finding joy in the things I love, they have just been WORK. Hard work.
The spiritual tiredness has been the worst part. I have struggled to hang on to God’s promises in faith. I have struggled to see the good in certain situations–situations that I’m usually so thankful for. I have given more attention to what God has not done yet than to what He is doing.
