It’s something that I don’t do well. Honestly, I thrive on the thrill of constantly being on the go. But lately I have felt so worn out.
I normally try and keep things positive around here, but today I’m struggling. And I feel that, maybe, you may be struggling too.
Life at the moment is so crazy. If I could only tell you what all is on my plate, you would probably tell me that I’m insane.
And today, it’s weighing me down and I’m just trying to hold it all together.
You probably have many hats you are currently juggling. Between being a good wife and making sure your kids get to where they need to be, the laundry (ugh), the meals, the cleaning, the doctor’s appointments, the homework, the grocery shopping…etc. And then if you work from home or outside of the home, you have responsibilities there as well.
For the most part, you keep it all together but every now and then it collapses and you just need to step away and take a day.
I’m here to tell you that it’s ok to step away. It’s ok to stop something you are doing. We have to reevaluate and re-prioritize sometimes. When responsibilities are added to our plates, we may need to let something else go.
We may need to learn to say, “no”.
If you are currently feeling overwhelmed with life, I want to take today and pray for you.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I just want to lift my sister up who is currently at the end of her rope. She is balancing all of her plates and one of them is about to fall and break. She is giving her all in too many things and it’s leaving her exhausted, frustrated, drained and completely empty. She doesn’t have much more to give. I’m asking you Jesus to give her the rest she desperately needs. Help her step back and see what is causing her stress. Allow her to pull back from anything that is not bringing her peace at the moment. I pray that right now you will give her strength. Your word says that you are our strength when we are weak, and Lord we are so weak. You give rest to the weary and today, we need that rest. We need your peace. I pray that today, she will be able to feel your presence in a way that she’s never felt it before. Help us get through our day. Allow us to do the things that we need to do. Help us find that joy that can only be found in you. Help us rest in you, today.
Friend, I’m with you. I know how you feel. I understand you. Don’t lose sight of who you are. And especially don’t lose sight of God. Keep Him as your focus. Rely on Him. Talk to Him. Pour it all out.
I loved this quote I shared on Instagram last night…
“A strong woman loves, forgives, walks away, lets go, tries again, perseveres… no matter what life throws at her.”
But I want to add to that quote. The only way that we are strong is through Christ. And because of Him, we can do all of those things.
I hope you have a great day. You know that you can always reach out to me if you need anything.
