Weary and Broken….in the arms of Jesus

Standard

The month of October sure did do a number on me. I have been overcome with a weariness, and a brokenness that I just haven’t been able to shake. My writing is my outlet, yet I haven’t written much at all, and when I do finally place myself in front of the computer to do so, I find myself exhausted: to tired to think, to tired to type, to tired to care. And here I find myself racing into the 2nd week of November and yet still, I haven’t much snapped out of it. That worries me slightly because of my long battle with depression. I have regained so much, and I will NOT let the enemy steal it back from me.

 

Words cannot even begin to place where my heart has been:

A failure as a wife

A mother

A writer

A Christian

A volunteer

And even an employee…

Yet at the same time: I know that I know that I know……

That God is moving, He is almighty, and powerful….and He has a plan in place. A plan so great that even Phil and I can hardly believe it! But as we know, the greater the plan He has, the harder the attack from the enemy.

So as I walk in faith with this weary heart, I will find my refuge in Christ.

 

For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy” Psalm 61:3

 

In what ways have you found refuge in the midst of weariness, in the midst of knowing God is doing something Big in your life, in the midst of chaos…..?

  1. The nations shall see your righteousness,
    and all the kings your glory,
    and you shall be called by a new name
    that the mouth of the LORD will give.
    You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
    and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
    You shall no more be termed Forsaken,
    and your land shall no more be termed Desolate,
    but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her,
    and your land Married;
    for the LORD delights in you,
    and your land shall be married.
    For as a young man marries a young woman,
    so shall your sons marry you,
    and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
    so shall your God rejoice over you.
    (Isaiah 62:2-5 ESV)

    You are loved by your God and your creator! You are his delight. Take heart!

  2. I can relate to your struggle, and through it I have come to realize that our value and self worth does not lie in our deeds or titles. It doesnt lie in what we have or how people feel about us. Our worth lies soley in our relationship with the Lord. He is what makes us treasured, important, needed…not man. I hope this helps you. In the midst of every struggle look back and find the lesson in it.

  3. Oh, I get weary. Big time. I have learned that as a writer, when I am blocked it is because I need to find refreshment. Often, when I’m doing too much, it is through songs of worship. I simply come and I am filled.

    Thanks so much for sharing your heart and writing where you are. It is powerful!

    • Thank You Katie for sharing. That scripture is powerful…it is so refreshing (as refreshing as it can be) to know I am not alone, and I am still somewhat “normal” even though I occasionally dream of running away (as an act of kindness to those I am so worthless to)
      I look forward to reading more of your writings!
      In Christ!

  4. Hey Mom to Mom I know how hard it can be to stay on the up side sometimes, it’s a hard job doing what you do, including writing here, none of us have that giant S on our chest all the time, sometimes were gonna have to miss the call cuz, well… the cape’s at the cleaners? Lol, you are in my prayers friend. -WATW

  5. Thank you for sharing a bit of your story and where you are at right now. I think we have all been there, I know have, but not a lot of us share it with others. I am encouraged by your faithfulness in the midst of pain. Like you said, You know what you know. Stand firm. Don’t let go, because He won’t. I’m praying for you.
