Over the last month, I have found myself tired—very tired. Tired physically, tired emotionally, even tired spiritually. And the more I have explored this exhaustion, the more I’ve come to see how layered it truly is. I looked at all the different areas of my life and the things that I’m working on and trying to accomplish. I looked at the different responsibilities and the weights that are pulling on me on a daily basis. I thought about my frustrations and my lack of answers. And I continued to grow more tired.
My goal became to really prioritize and put one foot in front of the other. For me that looked like hunkering down, taking care of my family, and consistently doing a few things each day to allow me to clear my head, feel a sense of accomplishment, get me closer to a goal. It also looked like taking a step back from social media.
I’ll be honest and say that on my own, I don’t always know what to say. But I do know when I feel a release from God. I do know when I feel His Holy Spirit move on my heart, and what I strongly heard and felt yesterday was not to grow weary in doing good.
Over the last month, and particularly the week, I have been listening and watching. I’ve been listening to how people speak to and about each other, and I’ve been watching how people respond—whether it be positively or negatively. And as this weekend came to a close, I wondered about what to say and what not to say.
Very quickly I began to sense myself taking on a lot of different feelings. I sat in those feelings, and I questioned them. And the Holy Spirit reminded me that our feelings often change with our situation, but the one thing that I can consistently count on through varying seasons and circumstances is God’s Word. It is always Truth, it is always applicable, and it is always love—even when It’s tough love.
So, it is with that understanding from the Holy Spirit that I will continue doing what I’ve been doing: sharing Truth—God’s Word.
What is that good thing that God has given you that you can lean even more heavily into? Share it in the comments 📝🙏🏾❤️.
