You know, I have been in the midst of making hard decisions lately. The things I have been dealing with maybe seemingly insignificant in comparison to what others are facing but in my waking up and laying down, getting down to the world I live in, within the parameters of my existence…where no one else can or ever will live, except me and God, I have included too many things. When I say this, I mean the things like “but..what if”…not wanting to give up the things, that though they are no doubt, “God things”, aren’t God’s thing for me.
I heard a preacher mentioned: And I quote.
“What if we find ourselves “burned out”, we are in disobedience because we know what we are and are not capable of. And the sad thing is, I have toyed with disobedience because I have entertained burn out. I’m not yet but believe me, it knows where I live and as far as I’m concerned, it’s not a welcome guest. There’s only room for me and God!”
Psalm 38:10 describes “burn out”. “My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.”
But God is faithful and I will address my “soul” accordingly as many times as is necessary. Psalm 43:5 “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.”
