Are you tired?
With the crazy schedules most of us keep, how could we NOT be tired? Most of us are trying to balance work, family responsibilities, taking care of our homes, preparing meals, juggling our kids schedules and their needs, caring for sick or elderly family members, fitness and volunteering. And, how many of us actually get the 7-9 hours of sleep we need each night. No wonder so many of us are walking around somewhere between cranky and comatose!
If this hits a little too close to home, don’t forget that you have a powerful remedy to exhaustion right at your fingertips (and, no, I’m not talking about Red Bull). This is God’s promise from Isaiah 40:29-31,
“He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.”
