Have you ever been so tired that you couldn’t think straight? That’s how I feel today. We watched our 6-month-old granddaughter, and because she is teething she kept waking up during the night. Since we had a lot of errands to run, we couldn’t sleep in this morning.
I thought about Isaiah 40:29-31, “He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint” (NLT).
Sometimes we are just so exhausted that all we want to do is just stay in bed but we can’t. We have to work, take the kids to school, go to that meeting, or run errands— we need to do life. Isn’t that when we should look to God for strength?
Although I only had about three hours of sleep, I didn’t feel as tired as I thought I would. God is good and His Word is true!
