Hey! I wanted to check in with you…thought you might need it.
How ya doing these days? Because things are tough right now. Know what I mean? You’re probably exhausted and I do mean E X H A U S T E D. I’m just guessing because I feel it too.
Maybe like me, you managed to put on some clean(ish) clothes and your plan again is to just keep the kids alive.
Maybe it’s taking every bit of your strength to step outside and get some sunshine.
Maybe you showered today and it’s all you can do.
Some days are for surviving and if the small stuff is all you‘ve got in you for today, that’s OKAY.
You know why? Because easy stuff is hard right now. The news is draining. The world feels like it’s crumbling. You’re overwhelmed. You’re worried. You’ve just been through something and are walking through something you’ve never been through before. You’re up against so many decisions in a time when there are NO GOOD CHOICES and you just -C A N N O T- do it today.
Come close, weary one. I SEE YOU and I need you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
- It all feels like too much.
- Surviving is all you can do.
- You can’t make one more decision.
Just do the next right thing.
- You realize that you can’t do this on your own.
- You don’t know where your strength for tomorrow will come from.
- You can’t handle the weight of it all for one more minute.
Just say, “Jesus”.
He’ll be there, walking beside you, offering the grace you need to make it through to tomorrow.
