I Need Rest
But, sometimes life can overwhelm us. I don't think that it means we're denying our blessings, just that we are human....not super human. Normally I'm positive regardless of what life throws at me. I know I'll get through it. I've gotten through hard times before and I'll continue to get through hard times when I'm presented with them. Never count me down, and never count me out. It'll never happen. Yet, right now, I'm tired. I'm so tired. My spirit is tired, my heart is tired and with all that I am, I just need for it to be okay to be tired. I don't have time to rest, no get away weekends, no drowning my sorrows in a few dozen margaritas, I simply don't have the time to escape. But right now, I'm just tired and I need for that to be okay.
Fortunately I can press on when I'm tired...and friends, I'm pressin' on. And I'm praying. I'm not praying that quiet little bow my head and not be heard or noticed type of prayer. No, I'm praying that on my knees, tears flowing, hands lifted and heart calling out with all that's in me kind of prayer. I need God's strength, I need His joy and I need His help. Right now, more than ever, I NEED Him. I'm holding on to Him tighter than I've ever held on before. I'm going to cling to the hem of His garment (c'mon, if you know what I'm talking about, let me know it) and I'm not letting go.
So I'm just going to trust God to do His thing (He conquered death, after all, how hard can my mess be for Him?) and I'm not going to concern myself with any of life's heaviness tonight, because frankly, I'm just too tired.
