I'm worn out


Cora passed out on the kitchen floor
 There are things happening all around me that are zapping my energy. I feel like someone has pounced on me like a bunch of spider monkeys. I think I could sleep for days without waking up, but that's not very practical with little ones pulling on me and vying for my attention. I am continually praying for restored marriages, freedom from addiction, peace and comfort for those who have lost loved ones, peace in the midst of the storm of bad news, provision for those who have lost it all...literally, comfort and healing for those who need a physical touch from the Great Physician, peace among families, and a calm spirit and cool head (as opposed to a hot one) to deal with people who are not so lovely to deal with.


Have you ever been there? Of course you have. Haven't we all? Sometimes it just seems like when it rains, it pours. There is SO much sadness all around us. We are in a drought around our part of the world, and that's how my spirit feels...parched. I'm really missing my sweet girl too...her little button nose, her soft skin, her sweetness. My third little step in the line of our children is gone, and I miss her. My heart aches for her. My arms yearn to hug and hold her.

Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.

  2. Holy Father, fall fresh on Christy.In the name of Jesus, restore her and give her a big daddy hug that only you can provide. She is such a blessing to others (including me). renew her energy so that she can press on towards the goal and not grow weary. We love you Lord and thank you for your provision. Amen. Hugs to you Christy. PS were ready for a dinner poolside. (however different from my dream :)

  3. Christy, You are not alone. I am at the same place of worn out. It feels like you are day dreaming sometimes that reality isn't really reality. I have not lost a child but right now my reality is that my husband is fighting addictions and has for years and the promises were all empty and the lies were to cover selfishness last week was horrible he threatened to take his life and then the cops had to take him and have him committed and in the process spilled the beans about his drug addiction that has never stopped even through 3 rehabs please know you are not alone in feeling worn out and even though our circumstances are not that same my heart aches in a different place than yours but know i am holding your hand as a sister in Christ and praying for you.
    Yesterday morning on the way to my lawyers office i heard this song as soon as i started the car and i lost it in the car. (I <3 Matthew West) It is his new single Strong Enough (here are the opening lines "You must, you must think I’m strong
    To give me what I’m going through
    Well, forgive me, forgive me if I’m wrong
    But this looks like more than I can do on my own")
    Christy you are a strong woman of God and I know you are strong enough through Him and I know he is by your side.
    Keep your eyes on Him and He promises to carry you and your family.

    Your sister in Christ
