     Hello! I just have to admit that I am tired.  Don't go just yet, I am hoping this ends up encouraging even in the midst of my tiredness.
     It has been busy in our household, especially now that the kids are back in school,  no more snow days.  Although my sons white crayon is still in the freezer.  I keep telling him if they miss much more school they will be in school all summer long, but he doesn't believe me. So back into the freezer the crayon goes.  But it is much more than just getting back into a routine, there is just the start of a new year, new plans to be made, new goals to set. And if you don't set them early they start looking like they will never be done, or even started.  But even more than the not made plans, is that we have been battling some serious spiritual battles within our household.        
     The winds of change they are-a blowin'.   LOL, not sure where that came from.  It is the truth in our house. Things are changing.  We have taken over a very tough ministry that is quite frankly battling the gates of hell daily, but its not the outside ministry that has me tired but the inside one.
     While I am not going to go into what is going on here, it is rough, spiritually.  I pray and beg God and cry until my eyes hurt.  Here is the thing I am noticing through out this "rough spot". My prayer life has never been sweeter! The words that my Daddy God speaks to me during our quite time is wonderful, and encouraging.  Then I remember that what I am battling is not a war on flesh and blood  but against principalities. (Ephesian 6:12) That is what I am battling.  
     I am also encouraged by He gives strength to those who grow tired   and increases the strength of those who are weak. ( Isaiah 40:29Or that  He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6 )  Or greater is He who is in me, than he who is in the world.   (1 John 4:4)  Especially that He has overcome the world.( John 16:33

     So when I am tired, just lay down on the kitchen floor and take a nap tired, I remind myself of these truths. So simple, yet they can get lost in the business of our lives.  In that business is where we become weary, and burdened.  So tonight I will lay it all at His feet, for all those verses and many more He is worthy of my love and trust. Tonight I will just trust. I will get back into a place of abiding within Him. 

Not blow your socks off great, just real... real tired.
