I'm exhausted these days. I think that the last 12 years of running for and serving Jesus has caught up with me.
My friend Amy told me to choose 3 goals or so that I want to get done each day, and when I got one done, do something to celebrate! :-) I think she and I must be twins separated at birth. I'm all about CELEBRATING EVERYTHING! :-)
Another dear friend told me that I'm in the "Elijah stage" right now, (where the angel took care of him)...and I just need to REST!
If you'll recall, Elijah had to RUN for his life, and when he went a day's journey into the wilderness, he came and sat down by a juniper tree.
1Ki_19:5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.
1Ki_19:7 And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.
Note: God understands when we are tired. He didn't SCOLD Elijah, he sent an angel to minister to him. :-)
So, I'm trying to do just that. Taking one day at a time, doing what I can each day, and not feeling guilty to rest.
