Have you ever had one of those days when you wish you could just go back to bed? You’re not just tired, but you’re worn down. Your get up and go has got down and left.
Maybe allergy season has hit you hard. Maybe late nights and early mornings have taken their toll. Maybe a “friend” is on their way. Maybe the throbbing in your head helps you forget about the pain in your heart.
If you’re raising your hand at one or all of those or even adding to the list, I want to share with you, my sweet friend, some words of encouragement we both need. I know my hand was raised high.
In your weariness seek God’s face and rest in His presence. When you’re weary lean into His strength.
God responds to my weariness in usually one of two ways:
His grace empowers me to do what I could in no way do on my own. I show up and God shows off. These are the times I see His empowering grace that enables me to do what I can only do through Him … which is everything.
Then other times I come to the end of me and find my human frailty. God in His compassion knows how I am formed and that I am but dust (Psalm 103:14). This human body needs sleep, self-care, and time in my schedule to breathe.
So if you find yourself in that weary place, my sweet friend, give yourself grace. If there’s something that needs to get done, God will strengthen you to get it done. Otherwise, sometimes we need to give ourselves the grace we say we need but too often fail to receive.
Grace says, “I need help” and accepts help from others. Grace says, today’s to-do will be there tomorrow. Receive God’s grace in your weariness, my friend, and let’s believe for a better tomorrow. : )
