I’ve been so tired lately. Not just physically tired, but emotionally tired too. Do you ever feel that way?
Let me break it down for you:
Tired of smiling all the time when sometimes I want to cry.
Tired of laughing when I want to be mad.
Tired of homeschooling because I honestly feel like a failure most days.
Tired of cooking because most days, the family doesn’t really want to eat what I fix.
Tired of laundry because it is a never ending battle that I can never seem to win.
Do you see yourself in any of those reasons why I say I’m tired?
Sometimes I feel guilty when I say I’m tired because I am supposed to be this superwoman who can do it all. At least — that is what I feel like I should be doing every day — right?
Yeah I know I’m not superwoman, and trying to do it all and be everything to everyone is not healthy for me. So what’s a woman to do when she feels like this?
My only job as God’s princess is to rest in Him when I am weary. I am not to keep plugging along acting like everything is ok. I run to Him and I find Him and I lay my head in His lap. As my Dad, He rubs my head whisking away all my weariness as He speaks positive and encouraging thoughts into my heart.
“You are a great daughter to Me.”
“I am so proud of the work you are doing for My Kingdom.”
Your worship to Me is beautiful. Thank you for giving of yourself.”
When you get to that point like me when you feel like you cannot go on one more step, run to the Father and let Him wrap you up in His embrace and re-energize your life!
