Exhausted {Day 9}

Do you ever have those days when you feel like the epitome of "exhaustion?" Yeah, me too.

Today is precisely one of those days.

I'm super tired, and I'm irritable. We've been busy; our eating habits have suffered in a HUGE way over the past month-- and I can now firmly attest to the old adage, "You are what you eat."

Fo reals' yo. (That is as gansta as I get. Enjoy the chuckle if you just actually imagined me saying that out loud. Come to think of it, I really do say that out loud a lot. I guess I'm just full of surprises.)

I'm keeping this short tonight. Sleep is calling my name.

In the meantime, would you please pray for our family?

We have a lot of things on our plate mentally, emotionally, financially and physically right now. We're waiting not so patiently on the Lord for the next steps. Some days are fantastic, and my faith jar is filled up and spilling over. Other days, it feels like I'm clinging to peace with every ounce of strength that I possess and that I'm still losing my grip. Even more often, I just carry on from moment to moment ping-ponging between courage and despair-- doing my best to stand firm on what the Word says is true, while cautioning myself to remember Jeremiah 17:9-10, "The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out. But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be." (MSG)

That's honesty friends. Thanks for letting my heart vent. If there is anything that you need prayer for (or just a friend to talk too), shoot me an email! Because isn't our faith-journey all about bearing each others' burdens?


  1. mmmm. that's truth right there (said with one of them Texan drawls that I'm sure you here regularly). :)

  2. I'll be praying for you constantly. We're in a similar season, ourselves.
