Too tired to make a difference

Yesterday seemed like a never ending day. Have you ever experienced one of those times? The alarm sounded at 5:00 a.m. I hit the snooze button several times before I finally convinced myself I had to get out of the bed and navigate towards the shower. The entire day was long and I was tired. I was really tired......... I was looking forward to going home to RELAX! Well the relax part didn't exactly happen but I did have a very relaxing evening.

Guide me in your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You do I wait all the day long.
Psalm 25:5

It is difficult to not become weary and worn when you have a zillion irons in the fire 24/7. But do you know that when we come to that place of exhaustion that we are not productive for His Kingdom? We become irritable and short tempered with others, we are too tired to read and study the Word and we can't pray for fear of falling asleep when we close our eyes!

We do have a responsibility to take care of ourselves and it must be a daily priority to make time for God. Not a microwave prayer and a mini devotion. When you are craving a doughnut do you settle for those mini's. NO! We want a nice big chocolate covered donut with all the trimmings. We should not settle for anything less than quality time with our Lord and Savior. Microwave prayers and mini devotions will never build solid Christians.

Take inventory and eliminate clutter in your life. Mediate on His Word and allow Him to reenergize your Spirit. When we are exhausted, weary and worn we don't make a positive difference in the Kingdom of God.
