Weekend Thoughts

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16
I’m tired. Really tired. Could be that the whirlwind trip to VA Sunday, then the whirlwind housecleaning for a showing yesterday, has a leettle to do with this. And being pregnant fits into the deal nicely. But beyond all that, the weariness seems to have settled in for the long haul, and I’m finding I’m not not up to many tasks that need done. This weekend, I’ll spend some time figuring out the physical side of this fatigue, with the hope that some improvements in nutrition, and just plain slowing down, will help. More importantly, however, I’m praying for that renewal from the above verse that is promised me. There is power, Christ’s resurrection power, inside me, and I ought to have the strength and endurance that is needed for any circumstance. No, not superhuman abilities beyond my capabilities, but enough fuel to get what I need to do, done. My prayer is that His power would be evident in my life, that I could experience that renewal today, and day by day.Read two great devotionals by Nancy Campbell about resting here and here.
P.S. The passages I have been reading in 1 and 2 Corinthians lately have perfectly applied to my current struggles. God’s word is powerful.

  1. I love those pictures. Children playing is refreshing…seeing all their energy, and then watching them peacefully sleep. 🙂 Here’s praying we gain that perfect balance between working and playing hard, and resting in all the ways we need.

    The garden cake is NEAT! I have often thought (if I haven’t told you) of asking to see your drawings/art. I clicked the cake pic and was impressed with your great veggies!
