You know the feeling of when your body is tired but your soul is wide awake? Well, that’s how I feel! I am the best kind of tired; worn-out from a full schedule, but filled up by all the blessings that come with it.
I am smack dab in the middle of our last two Fresh Grounded Faith events. We just got home from Evansville, Indiana and we are heading into our last event this weekend in Springfield, Missouri–my hometown!
So, I will keep this brief since I know I am not the only one who is busy or tired (aren’t we all?!). I just want to share with you a few fabulous facts that reveal just a glimpse of what God did in Evansville.
Seven women chose faith in Christ! Yee-haw! New sisters in Heaven I will get to meet one day. We will kneel before God’s throne side-by-side and thank Him for showing up in Evansville and drawing these women to Himself. Thank You Lord!
Also, 72 precious kids were rescued from poverty in Jesus’ name through Compassion International. Yes! Those wonderful Indiana women showed their love for Jesus by loving these children.
There were others who were probably tired too. A few men from the church that helped with event coordination took an active role in prayer for us, we found out.
When we arrived early Saturday morning at the church for day two of FGF Evansville, we heard a few workers doing battle on their knees for the women and children who needed hope and rescue that day. What an encouragement. They prayed; God heard.
The Apostle James wrote that the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. These righteous men not only served at the event, but expectantly prayed for the righteous, rung out, tired women there too! What a blessing.
So, if your body is tired and your soul is empty, pray. That is what every tired woman needs to do. Just take the little energy you have and kneel. You are strongest when you kneel, my friend. God will hear you, fill you and lift you up.
My prayer for this week is “Lord, help me hear Your voice, know Your will and I ask, Father, for an extra dose of rest.”
