Are You Exhausted?

Exhausted! Four days of District Council and I can say, “I’m exhausted.” Why, you ask? Was it the late nights or Orlando traffic? Nope, it was the bed. Nothing bad about it. I just couldn’t get a good nights sleep in it.

Song of Songs 2:15 Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.

Someone once said, “The Devil is in the details.”   There is some truth to that statement.  The simplest of things can do a great amount of damage.  But giving full attention to everything 24/7 is exhausting.  

What can you do?  

Know your priorities.  Know what is most important and work hard to keep it that way.  

To many priorities?  Time to unload some baggage.  If you cannot do everything that you need to do. 
Automate (like auto withdrawal or deposit.). 
Template (create a simple system that keeps your work load to a minimum.) 
Eliminate (would anyone notice if you stopped do it?  No?  Then stop it.) 
Delegate (give it to someone who will enjoy doing it.) 

Agreed, there are some things that are out of your control.  Like what kind of mattress you sleep on when out of town.  But a good nights sleep tonight will fix this.  What is happening in your life right now that continues to drain your energy, but you do nothing about?  

Prioritize things in your spiritual life and you will begin to see things priorities in every other aspect.  Pray and ask Jesus to help you.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me to get my life in order.  I’m tired of being sick and tired.  AMEN.
