A Prayer for God to Carry You thru an Exhausting Life Part
By Keri Eichberger

“The Sovereign LORD is my energy.” – Habakkuk 3:19

“I’m uninterested in singing the identical previous ‘drained’ track,” I confessed to my pal Chelsey final week. And she or he wasn’t the primary to listen to this tune fall from my annoyed lips. I’ve felt exhausted since I can’t keep in mind when. Did it start when the twins had been born, boosting our household of 5 to a full home of seven? Or was it after I turned forty, and my physique started to ache in all kinds of recent locations whereas my hormones whacked out with loopy contemporary flips and dips, crashing my power round proper with them? Or, perhaps it’s merely the compounding years of overstuffed schedules and overcrowded calendars, inflicting a gradual and regular, put on down of my fragile physique, soul, and spirit. All are amounting to bottom-out exhaustion. And with no signal of aid. In my world anyway. As a result of who am I kidding, I’m not getting any youthful, the twins have 13 plus years left at residence. And actually, the truth is, there’ll all the time be one thing. I do know you are feeling that.

I got here throughout Habakkuk 3:19 in my try and refuel my sunken energy and journal out these ideas in my morning quiet time. And what spoke to me is that this…

The Lord’s management is my energy. Once I’m worn down from attempting to manage conditions, individuals, their hearts, and responses (my youngsters primarily)–and I’m depleted of energy–I regain energy by releasing management again to God. I reclaim his energy by acknowledging that I’m not in management. Sure, I’ve been losing power whereas I’ve assumed management. Sabotaging myself of the energy I’m determined for. The sovereign Lord (the God that’s truly in management), he’s my energy. As a result of he strengthens me as I let this fact, the reality of his sovereignty, leak into my life, penetrate my coronary heart, cowl my ideas, and move by way of all my circumstances that I’m attempting to manage and play God of. My self-controlled environment all of the whereas put on me down.

It occurred to me that almost all of my exhaustion stemmed from my relentless try to manage my swirling circumstances as a substitute of resting in a gentle, sturdy–but generally brisk–stroll of God’s will for my life.

Belief me, I do know from private day-in-and-out expertise that plenty of your busyness you possibly can’t budge. However you possibly can shift the main focus of your coronary heart within the midst of what’s carrying down. And so can I.

Once we’re past drained, our our bodies really feel frail and fragile. Our souls are weighed down with an extended season of struggling and discouragement. Once we are flat out exhausted and really feel the burden press deeper with no aid to be seen on the seen horizon, and a sliver of energy appears unattainable to return by, we have to keep in mind that it’s the sovereign Lord who’s our energy. I want to recollect it proper now.

Buddy, along with me as we speak, will you launch your cares in your present season to his management? Think about and replicate on each element that’s weighing you down at this very second, and converse your belief in him over every concern. Your belief that each little bit is in his arms. And permit the reality of his love and management to revive energy to your soul as you relaxation your coronary heart in his unconditional care. The extra you launch your load to him, the extra you’ll really feel the load lighten. As he carries you someday at a time, one sovereign step at a time. Till ultimately you’re free. Free from the heavy chains of your tough section. 

It’s true we are able to’t assure how lengthy every weary section will linger. However relaxation assured, we most actually can assure God will all the time carry, help, and maintain us as we launch management and the heaviness to him and relaxation within the energy of his almighty sovereignty.

Let’s pray:

Lord, I come to you exhausted. Weary and worn down. And I want your energy. God, I don’t know when what’s carrying me down will finish. However I do know that you simply love me. I do know that you’re in management. And if I can simply acknowledge that you’re in management, and never me, then I can launch the burden, little by little, ounce by ounce, and relaxation in your care. After which regain some energy. Assist me relaxation on this fact. That my energy is in you and who you’re. Sovereign. Sure, my energy is within the fact of your loving, sovereign management. I’m so grateful that you’re carrying me along with your love, management, and energy. I’m grateful that your relaxation is all the time awaiting me due to it. Assist me relaxation in your energy. Assist me relaxation in your love. Assist me relaxation in you. In your Almighty identify, Amen.
