Who You Gonna Call...


After a particularly trying day last week I was driving and whining aloud "I'm so tired, Lord. So tired!". It felt like my soul was breaking and my voice rose to a higher octave as I really got into my anguish mantra when, to my surprise, I heard myself saying, "I am so blessed, Lord. So blessed!" The praise took over from there. Even though the cheerleader of the enemy tried to yell louder about my anguish, it was drown out, no match, for the victor who had taken its place! By the time I arrived at my destination I knew I was blessed, knew I had renewed energy to spare, knew that I, in fact, could do all thing through Him who strengthened me! And, I did.

I think 'tiredness' comes from 'hurt'. I've been trying to figure out how to feel light hearted again or what I must do in order to keep going and to feel whole again....I can now recall your message......Thank you for the perspective, thanks so much. The weight is lifted. Celestyne

Good Morning Celestyne, You are right, I believe, regarding the source of tiredness. What was interesting was that first I experienced the epiphany that changed my tiredness into a revelation of blessedness and shortly thereafter - a few days I believe - was that awesome shower of gratefulness. It's when we bring our contrite hearts to Him that He can and will give us comfort. You are loved dearly, my friend!

Your writings on 'tiredness' and 'gratefulness' do seem to connect. I was so relieved to read that you had decided to 'write' more in the coming year. I can feel your energy. You can't image the 'glee' that came over me to read those last two blogs. Thanks for the focus. With all my love, Celestyne
