Need a Holiday?

Last night, I slept like a log!  I didn't want to wake up, this morning.  Consequently, I slept in, well at least until 7:45 a.m.  Late, for me!

Even so, I got my weary and aching body up, and began my day.  I did my exercise, like a good girl!

Running this race, I feel like I'm worn out.  Like I've had all I can take.  I need a break!

I mean this in a physical way, but there is more.  Maybe I need a holiday.

I believe it is possibly the stress of not just making deadlines that were looming, quickly.  But, I must say that having to write and read over and over what I had written, contributed to this feeling of being overwhelmed.

Then, with having to figure out how to use the new Blogger system last evening, with no way of instruction, nearly wore me out enough to exhaust me.  After all, I spent over two (2) hours, trying to get my entry posted.  In the end, the system posted it, not on July 7th as it should have, but early in the morning on July 8th.  Oh my...

Of course, knowing that as of July 1st, it's been a year since my brother Glenn died, it's been a reminder of loss.  And, then there's the grief of losing Gordon.

Daily, I must remind myself of Ephesians 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

The evil one comes to destroy us, in any way he can.  If we let him.

The good news is we have an intercessor.  Our Lord, Jesus Christ intercedes for us with God the Father.

Then of course, there's the Holy Spirit, who also helps us.  Romans 8:26, "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

When I get feeling worn out, exhausted with life and it's trials, I look to my Lord, who provides me with everything I need.  Without Him, I can do nothing.

If you don't yet know Jesus, I pray you will come to Him.  Get to know Him.  Have a personal relationship with Him.  He alone is the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to God, except by Him. (John 14:6).  May you be blessed.

Until next time...
