    Tired

    Youíre tired all the time. Thatís what you tell people. And itís true.

    But you probably canít even sleep when itís time to sleep. All of us have been there, but some more than others.

    I know you work hard. You have to in order to keep things going. But maybe youíre not tired because youíve done too much. Maybe thereís another reason.

    Youíre tired because:

    1. Youíve attached your worth to something or someone else.
    This will drag you down to zero and stick toothpicks in your eyes to keep them open. Listen close to me. You are worth it. You are the most precious thing on earth. You are a child of God. You have an inheritance waiting on you if you choose it. Itís not based on how good you are, but how good your Father is. Now, pick your chin up and act like a prince or princess. You are the son or daughter of the King of Kings.

    Youíre tired because:

    2. Youíre carrying around things you were never meant to bear.
    Most of us are toting around hundreds of pounds of guilt, shame, loneliness, and/or regret. If itís not one of those, itís probably twice that weight in excuses. These are things that will tire you out and keep you up at night. But you can drop them right now. You have to let them go. Jesus can free you from them, but he wonít pry your hand open. You must choose to let them go.

    Youíre tired because:

    3. You are trying to please everyone else.
    Somehow weíve come up with a notion that loving someone means doing what they want us to. This is not only wrong, itís killing us. The world dangles its love like a carrot and we are the *******es that fall for it. Iím not saying we should all turn into a bunch of jerks. Iím saying that we are supposed to love God with all we have and then love others as much as we love ourselves. That didnít say love others instead of ourselves.

    Youíre tired because:

    4. You havenít done enough of what you were meant to do.
    What were you meant to do? The answer most people search for is tied to an occupation or hobby. But I donít think thatís the real meaning of life. You want to know what you were meant to do? Itís found in the Good Book. It comes straight out and tells us. Itís not the end all, but the begin all.

    He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

    Youíre tired, not because you did too much, but because you did too little of what sparks a light within you.

    I read this when you posted it, and thought, "how very true"! Just a while ago I shared this with my coworkers, one of whom is having trials of her own.

    Always good here in the chapel and it reaches futher than we're may know.

    You are uptight because, deep down, you really believe it is all about you, not God. Sorry, when life is about God and not me is when I can relax and let Him run it. My life or death is not about me, its about God. Our marriage (all 44 years of it) isn't about us, its about God. Our kids are not about us, they are about God.

    When my life and my pressures and my desires (fulfilled or unfulfilled) are about me all the weight is on my shoulders. It's when I surrender all this to God in truth, recognizing that He is in charge and the are no accidents or happenstances in life but everything is in His plan that I can sleep peacefully.

    There is no 'right' that requires me to work for you or you to work for me!

    Lol ....you been hanging out in my pocket I've been having this exact conversation with some folks for the past few days... even our relationship with God isn't about us.. It's about Him and what He wants it to be
