Day 11: Exhausted and Spent
Sometimes with all the praying, fasting, speaking, strategizing, weeping, connecting, and collaborating for women and children touched by abortion, it’s easy to suffer burnout and exhaustion. I am approaching that myself now. I have a major program launching, an ongoing mentoring program, office responsibilities, a prayer team, am preparing responses to misinformation regarding abstinence programs, and the list goes on. I’m feeling tired and a little rundown. And I’m not the only one. There are many like me all across this country who are passionate about making a difference. Our energy ebbs and flows but our hearts always burn to see women choose life.
reminds me that when I’m struggling to regain strength, there’s an inexhaustible supply available:
The favors of the Lord are not exhausted, his mercies are not spent. They are renewed each morning, so great is his faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait in silence for the saving help of the Lord. Lam. 3:22-26
I’m waiting, hoping, pressing.
