Hey y'all, I'm having deep thoughts today and thought I'd share them with y'all. Do you ever get in a funk? You know, nothing's really wrong, just a little blue, you're just kinda tired, kinda worn out, a little blah, sorta feeling like a jammies all day sorta day? Man I sure do, and today is one of those days. It's Friday, but it doesn't feel like a Friday to me, it feels like Tuesday! Maybe it's because I am bogged down with so much to do, or maybe I'm just seriously tired and I need a long nap. Haha.
Feeling like this got me to wondering how many other women are experiencing this regularly. Is it because I'm menopausal, or is it because I have too much on my plate at this moment? I sort of think it's the menopause because I don't have anymore on my plate than I've ever had. I've always been a very busy person, heck, I finished three degrees with three small children and a job at one point in my younger life.
Maybe it's not menopause, maybe it's just my age, period, I'm not sure. One thing I do know is, even though I don't feel like this all the time, I sure feel like this today, and I know I'm not the only person who goes through times like this. If what I'm describing is you, let me encourage you today as I have been encouraged. Psalm 42:11 says: "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God." My God goes before me, He lifts my head high.
Anytime we start to feel this way, or even if we're beyond just a bad day, but if we are fighting depression, we must always cling to the garment hem of Jesus. He is our hope, and only He can provide all we need, When I begin to feel this way I spend some time in prayer just talking, but mostly LISTENING to the Lord. Listening to Him is one of the easiest way to get out of that funk you're in. "He walks with me and he talks with me, and He tells me I am His own.", one of my favorite song lyrics. Isn't this true though? I know it's true for me, and even when I loose sight of Him for a moment when I'm feeling out of sorts, He comes in and He sorts it ALL out for me, perfectly in His way and in His time. I have to seek Him though, and not try to do it all myself, because the truth is, I can't, and neither can you!
Today, if you're in a funk, if you're feeling down, tired, or just melancholy in general, know that we serve a God who will be there for you to lift you up when you feel like you can't do it on your own. Yes He is capable of lifting you out of a deep depression, but He cares so much for you that even when you have an off day, if you call on Him, He will be there for you! How amazing is that? Thank you Jesus that you love me so much you don't leave me in my spoils.
Y’all, you know my life is a little crazy. Okay, some days it’s A LOT crazy, but I’m blessed for the life I live and the God I serve. An amazing husband and seven children I love so much, all the rest is just bonus so on a day like today, I drink a little more coffee, go get some junk therapy in, and get back to loving life.
I pray you have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend. I'll be doing all the things this weekend, and I'm sure I'll be sharing them with all of you.
