Tired | Isaiah 40:29-31

Share this article :
Tired, Isaiah 40:29-31, I'm going to sleep like a newborn baby, but first I will write freely his Five Minute Friday

I am so glad that she posted the Five Minute Friday word early because I am up very late and extremely tired, though looking forward to it :) Ironically, the word we're writing about is ... TIRED.


December has crept up on me this year and no wonder. This has been a REALLY busy year. Last December, we moved into our "temporary" house (long story) just days before Christmas and having the baby. My family arrived, from out of town, just in time to open presents, eat an amazing Christmas dinner, clean up and take me to the hospital to have our baby.

We moved again just a few months after I had the baby and it has taken all of these months to settle into our new home and community while nursing baby, homeschooling, unpacking, entertaining, cooking, cleaning and working my behind off (wish it was literally) on client and personal projects. It has been a busy year and I am tired.

Not nearly as tired as before ...

Not as tired as when I moved to Florida and started all over.

Not as tired as when I was as a single mother trying to do it all alone.

Not as tired as when I was of fighting and crying over a rebellious son.

Not as tired as when I was when I worked two jobs as a mother and in school.

Not as tired as when I was pleading for special support classes for my son.

Not as tired as I was when I finally got tired of taking the bus, in the snow, with my son, and begging people to help me get my drivers license at 25.

Not as tired as I was as a new mommy on welfare trying to make ends meet.

Not as tired as when I left home as a teenager.

Not as tired as when I used to lay in bed and wonder about my mom.

Now that I think about it, I am not nearly as tired as I thought that I was ...

How could I not praise the Lord for such a difference?

"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." ~ Isaiah 40:29-31 (NIV)

In Motherly Love,
Mother Baby Child

Hi. Stumbled on your blog through Friendly Friday. I recently started putting more focus on my walk with God and have been looking for other Christian mom blogs to follow. Not only is this post a reminder that God gives strength to the weary, but also a reminder that things happen with God's timing.

@Lucy's Soup Can - Exactly, Lucy. Thank you so much for commenting and following. Hugs & Blessings :)
