This pregnancy has been hard on me. I have been more tired than I remember with my other ones, and while I found out a reason and a solution to the physical exhaustion, I have allowed that to make me spiritually exhausted as well.
I’ve thought things I shouldn’t think. And allowed myself to go on thinking them.
I’ve said things I shouldn’t say.
I’ve had a horrible attitude.
I’ve fed the depression and anxiety instead of turning it over the The One who can help.
Daily, I have let the chores of keeping up the house and homeschooling my children become a burden to me. I have been trying to do it in my own strength. And the truth is I Just Can’t!
My life has been so busy. I’m in a busy season right now. And in order to make time for everything, I have cut out the most important thing. My daily prayer and Bible time with the Lord.
It’s now wonder I have been so overwhelmed. I haven’t been refreshing myself daily. I haven’t allowed the Lord to lead. I’ve been relying on myself.
And the truth is: I will always fail. I will always come short. Another truth: I don’t have to live that way. There is a better way.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” -Philippians 4:13
Jesus Christ can and will strengthen me. He will lead and guide me. He will bear my burden. I just have to let Him.
