Okay, I really wanted to entitle this post 'exhausted' but upon reflection decided 'content' really was the better descriptor. Exhaustion implies drained, depleted, empty. And may possibly border on the dramatic. At least in this for instance. And I am none of those. Well, mostly not. ;)
I will admit to being tired as the weekend approaches, though. It has been a very full week, on so many levels. But I am not drained. Nor depleted or empty. I am encouraged, inspired and grateful. And content.
:: encouraged by the workings of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those around me
:: inspired to take the next steps, trusting the process
:: grateful for answered prayers and warriors offering them
:: content in the knowledge that what we have is more than enough, so much more really
Hoping you have all come through the week feeling some of the same. Wishing you a weekend that fills and renews your heart and your spirit.
"if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement;if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. "
