Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

my tired is tired

Are you tired today? Maybe every day?  Maybe you are tired of being tired — what do can you do?
 
The obvious should be addressed: Your schedule, your sleep patterns, your diet and exercise, and how much water are you drinking? All of these impact our bodies ability to handle the day to day stresses. If one or more of these is out of whack – don’t be surprised that you are exhausted.
 
There is another aspect that often gets overlooked. Our relationship to God! We were never meant to do things in our own strength.
 
Isaiah 40:29 He gives power to the tired and worn out, and strength to the weak… 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (TLB)
 
“The Lord God is my strength,
And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet,
And makes me walk on my high places.” (Habakkuk 3:19 NASB)
My own strength is insufficient to deal with the many situations that I face. God never intended for you or me to operate out of our own strength. In fact, many times scripture reminds us that God is our refuge and our strength.
 
There are times when God pours into us strength in abundance and we seem to run the race before us. (Hebrews 12:1) There are other times when God give us strength bit by bit so that we can walk in His statutes (Lev 26:3) and walk in love (Eph 5:2) leaning on Him every step of the way.
 
One thing is for certain, He will give us the strength we need when we need it. He is in control and He is for us. (Psalm 118:6)
 
So as you face situations that seem daunting, trials that seem to never end, heartache, or health issues remember where your strength comes from. Spend time today talking with God and casting your cares. (1 Peter 5:7)
 
in my weakness, He is strong,
til next time
