Burn Out

Advent
Advent

The excitement of decorating the Christmas tree comes early at our house and so our tree decor with it’s twinkling lights has been up since mid November! All was well for a time but the lights appear to be getting tired as they’ve had a couple of strands needing replacement to keep the tree sparkling at it’s best. Another strand now has just gone out leaving the bottom of the tree in the shadows. It seems to happen every year ~ burn out!! It’s quite frustrating to look and see a dark band or patch around a once beautifully lit, tree. It made me think that maybe that’s the way we are as we spend so much energy in preparation and by the time we celebrate the Heavenly Birth our twinkle is gone and our sparkle has dissipated into burn out. We’re worn out and the lights have dimmed or perhaps gone out altogether. On this Eve of Christmas, Make sure to relax and breathe and let the grace of God bring blessing and healing as you revive and rejuvenate from your tired aching bones and weariness.

Lay It All Out

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So if you’re running on empty ~ it’s time out ~ Time out for some R & R with the One who has you in the palm of His nail- scarred hand. The sovereign God who has your back and knows how you feel and just because He cares so much He’s there for you in your burn outs and wilderness walks. He stands beside you in your weakest moments of desperation and in your stormy chaos He throws the life-preserver into your ship wrecks. He walks on the water so He has you covered on all fronts. Talk to Him about it! Lay it out on the table before Him and seek His expert advise. One thing we can know for sure ~ He won’t lead us astray! Never for a second!

Psalm 32:8
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”

Proverbs 3:5-6
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Psalm 119:105
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
