Starting the Day Tired

Do you ever just get up tired? And even if you got a few hours sleep (which is rare for me all in a row!) just the thoughts about the things that must be done in general caregiving can be overwhelming. There is just so much to do in a day, and it's easy to be tired just thinking about it!

The thing is with being a caregiver we cannot just give ourselves a day off! It's just not an option as everything still has to be done no matter how we feel physically, mentally or emotionally.

These are the days I go back to one of my favorite scriptures. We used to sing it when I was a kid:

They that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength
They shall mount up with wings of eagles
They shall run and not grow weary
They shall walk and not faint

The verses immediately preceding this favorite are all about how God does hear and see. He does not get tired of us getting tired and running to Him! So if you are tired today (and even if you're not) run to Him and allow Him to fill you with His strength for today!
