Overwhelmed

This hasn't been a bad week by any stretch, but my energy level has been nil since Wednesday afternoon. I don't know if it's because I had put so much energy into being right on the news interview, or because I donated blood that afternoon, or maybe it's just been a week with more need for energy than sleep obtained. It doesn't matter.


Last night, I was down, overwhelmed, tired, angry, and frustrated. There are so many things that I want to do and sometimes it feels like the simple of act getting up, showering, dressing, and breathing is all I can manage. I hate that feeling so much it actually hurts...it's a dull ache in my temples and in my heart. I'm not sure if this is the situation that Paul was referencing when he spoke of "the spirit being willing, but the flesh is weak," or not. I do think it's a perfect example anyways.

Whether you're standing four feet deep within the hoard, or laying in bed wishing that your body would echo the energy your heart and mind are producing, I stumbled upon this psalm at just the right time last night. It encouraged me. Maybe it will do the same for you!


Hear my CRY, O God;    listen to my prayer.From the ends of the earth I CALL to you,    I call as my heart grows FAINT   LEAD ME to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge,    a STRONG TOWER against the foe.I long to dwell in your tent forever    and take REFUGE in the SHELTER of your wings.For YOU, God, HAVE HEARD my vows;    you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.Increase the days of the king’s life,    his years for many generations. May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;    appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.Then I WILL EVER SING in praise of YOUR NAME   and fulfill my vows day after day.
from Psalm 61, TNIV.
