After all the stress of last week, it was bound to happen. Saturday I had no more get-up-and-go. Fortunately I didn’t have anything that had to be done. I rested all day and most of Sunday. Monday morning I was still tired.
The Lord reminded me that it would be good if I would fast, so I refrained until suppertime that evening from putting anything in my mouth that had to be chewed. And, sure enough, I started getting back some energy, and the brain fog cleared! Yay!
I awakened feeling anxious. My daughter and I have to go pick up her brother at college and bring him home to finish his semester. I’m ok with that; it will be good to see him again.
But I just found out Sunday night about restaurants being closed in our state, and in doing my research it occurred to me that some kind of domestic travel ban might go into effect in the near future. I prayed about it, but I was battling visions of getting stopped by a state trooper out in the middle of nowhere and told that I could not go on.
Fortunately, as the brain fog lifted, the Lord led me each step of the way to call my congressman’s office, and to change our travel plans to leave a day earlier.
I would really appreciate your prayers for a successful and safe trip.
Today I am thankful for days of rest.
I’m thankful for God’s guidance and reminders.
I’m thankful for renewed energy, both mental and physical.
And I’m thankful that God gives us reassurance and lifts us up when we stumble.
What about you? How is God helping you through days of weariness, stress, and anxiety? Have you surrendered it all to Him? He is more than able to meet us where we are and take care of us in our time of need.
“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.
And my God will liberally supply (fill until full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6,19 AMP
