Well I missed my post for Thursday. The best laid plans... This is one of those weeks where I've just held on for dear life and tried to make it to the weekend. Actually I've had quite a few of those lately. It would be easy to get discouraged - and I have lately. I feel depleted in every way  and don't see any chance of catching up and filling up any time soon. How long can you run on fumes? I think I'm about to find out.

How will I regroup and refuel? Not sure yet. How about you? What do you do when everything becomes a chore and feels like more than you can handle - even the little things?

What do you do when the plans for the future that used to get your heart racing and energize you beyond belief, now seem like just one more task to do before you can rest?

All suggestions welcome. I hope this weekend is long and quiet and restful. For all of us. See you next week.

I think so many of us go through peaks and valleys of motivation and need refueling. I find that really digging into (and then resting in, which may be the harder part) His Word helps me. I keep a notebook beside my computer and with my Bible that I can write down verses that really encourage and inspire me -- or ones that continually pop up throughout a time period. Then I know He's usually telling me something. :-)

I've been digging into Philippians lately, and Philippians 2:14-16 really help. As do Romans 12:1-2.

Caroline, I think the 'resting in' part is sometimes the hardest part for me because I feel like I'm not doing anything. Then I have to remember that it's really not about me, and sometimes I just need to slow down long enough to refocus on God. Getting into scripture is the best way to do that - I agree. That's where I meet God again. I love those scriptures. Thanks for your comment - and as always, your enthusiastic support my Barnabas friend!
