Like a deer pants for water

Mighty Warrior. My God is a might warrior. I think I am a pretty big wimp. I am really exhausted tonight. It has been a really long couple days. I know tomorrow morning I shall have to rest whether I want to or not. I need emotional rest more than anything. This morning I thought about how I was either in a funk or in accelerated spiritual growth. It was hard to tell which one. By my evening time with God, I decided it felt like I was no longer running after Jesus. I am just crippling along behind Him right now. Weary to my core, hoping to be revived and refreshed soon.

I came to Him that way tonight. Desperately tired. I was so honest, and He did revive me some. I feel a bit like I might actually be running after Jesus right now though it feels like I am too weary to do so much as crawl after Him. Perhaps I am merely developing tenacity for some other time in life.

I am overwhelmed by how much I cannot do on my own. This morning I looked at control in a new way. Will I allow the brokenness humans to control me or God’s love?

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11
