Lord, I'm Weary
Psalm 119:116, "Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed."
Today, as I readied for work, I felt so tired. My spirit is drained. I've been fighting this battle for my grandson for a long time. We have good days and we have bad days and there's no predictable pattern. When we get a good day, I am afraid to rest on my laurels because another war might be just ahead.
As I prayed, I immediately remembered the scripture:
Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls"
I recited it a few times and then said, "OK Lord, you said to come to you if I am weary and burdened. Here I am!"
I'd love to say that I immediately felt better, but instead, it has been a gradual increase in strength and energy. My heart is praising and my burden does feel lighter. Isn't that the promise? He is gentle and He is gently restoring me.
