Tired is a gift, friends.
What if we gave in to the tired? I’ve started doing this in 2022.
God encased us in flesh. He gave us wrinkles and grey (on the back-side of forty) and a need for sleep and sunshine and water and … bathrooms. Is it too much to consider that He uses our bodies to reach us — to tell us when to pause, to slow, to sleep?
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” (1 Corinthians 6:19 )
We all would agree He cares about this temple, this holding place for Him, but He also uses it to teach us … to reach us.
Your steady mid-afternoon fatigue is telling you a story. Could it be God is using it to reach you? The real question: will you listen?
