Or take a look at Rachel, Jamie's daughter. Her little legs were so tired after a day walking. She's wiped out!
I think I've been doing pretty well lately under the circumstances. In the past, I would have been freaking out about the uncertainty in my life. But I've been learning what it means to ...abide in Christ.
I'm also learning though that I need to be on guard. I still must contend with my flesh this side of eternity.
Just when I think I'm getting it all together, I have a day like today when ...I'm so tired and weary.
It's interesting as I reread that last paragraph. I noticed I wrote "when I'm getting it all together". Yeah right!
Abiding in Christ means that I yield it all to Him. I allow Jesus to work in and through me. I rest in Him.
But right now I feel more like this photo. I'm juggling so many things right now and trying to keep them organized.
How can I go from feeling so great just a few days ago to feeling so tired and weary? I didn't even write a Thankful Thursday post today. In retrospect, maybe that would have been helpful.
For several days last week I was so excited as I awakened each morning with a song in my head and heart. I loved it. The words to Hillsong's song "Still" stayed with me for several days. I even posted the video of the song on my Then Sings My Soul Saturday post here.
But it reminds me that we can't live our life by feelings.
I even wrote about that very thing on this past Tuesday's post titled "Responding to Difficulties" here.
I have to remind myself that my feelings don't always reflect the truth. And my theme for 2010 is to "trust and obey". Now that doesn't mean only when ...I feel like it.
There will be trials and challenges in life. I don't have all the answers and I struggle from time to time. It's a moment by moment choice. Will I depend on myself or will I run to the One with all of the answers?
I choose to run to God and ...abide in Him.
How about you? Do you go back and forth between living by your feelings and living by faith? I need all the help I can get.
