Having three kids in school and needing this and that can take a toll on a parent! It takes a major toll on me, I know! Some days, I can barely keep up. And if you are a parent like me, you are better off doing things yourself rather than asking and inconvencing others. My mom always said, “You had the children so you take care of them.” Once I am done running around for my children, I get home and pass out on my bed in my clothes! People often vent their frustration with me because I miss their phone calls and don’t answer their texts. If only they understood the extent of my fatigue. But God knows it and He understands. That’s what I love about My Father. He gives me enough strength to operate and He let’s me know when to shut down even if I still have my clothes on. Sometimes, I get home and just want to meditate in my room alone with Him. I do this on my very stressful days with work, kids and other demands. I give God this time when I get home so I can release all of it into His hands. Once I do it, I feel better. I don’t want to go to go to bed with that day’s stress. For those who have days like me – I pray for God’s Strength to carry you before weariness sets in. I pray that you are able to identify God’s Voice when He says SHUT DOWN. I pray that you will release any stress into His Hands so that you may sleep in peace at night.
