Wellness and Exhaustion are two very different things. But the two are very connected. Wellness is always the goal, but exhaustion is often times the first stop on the road.
Think about having a cold-the sneezing, the coughing, you can’t sleep, you can’t breathe-you are downright tired. Wellness is breathing again and sleeping peacefully. Exhaustion is on the journey to well. Think about giving birth-the contractions and the pushing are exhausting! But seeing the beautiful face of your child means all is well!
We don’t have to live being tired, however. We can be determined to regain our strength and our power. We first must tell the truth: Are you tired of being hurt? Aren’t you tired of being bitter? Aren’t you tired of living in a depressed state? We must surrender these exhausted feelings and emotions so that we can move forward to well.
The Father invites us to exchange these feelings of tiredness and exhaustion for something so much greater:
Rest is the beautiful exchange! To become well, we must transition from exhaustion to rest. Sisters, it’s time to give the burden away! It’s time to conclude that we are on a different path-we must proclaim that we are on the road to well.
It’s time to admit we are tired so that we can move forward towards wellness. It’s time to acknowledge that wellness is our portion and our promise. We don’t have to live tired. We don’t have to live worn out or defeated. We don’t have to live with the burdens on our backs. It’s time to be set free, it’s time to be delivered from tired and worn out.
Live free, sisters. We are on the road to well!
Peace and Blessings
