on weariness…

I seem to experience different kinds of weariness in life.  Such as…

the I’m-so-tired-I-can-hardly-keep-my-eyes-open weary

or

the bone-aching-I-can-hardly-move weary

or 

the if-one-more-person-says-“MOM!”-I’m-going-to-scream weary

or even

the life-is-too-overwhelming-to-breathe weary

All cause weariness.  All wear me out at times.  All true to my life at one time or another.

… and then, there is the best kind of weariness…

the I’ve-given-all-I’ve-got-for-Him weary

That is where I am, tonight.  I’m bone deep exhausted.  It’s been a week of preparing VBS for 75 kids on Monday, taking a girl to 4H camp, planning a family reunion, preparing for Fair, getting up and driving a boy to early morning football practice, editing and rewriting 7 Bible studies and preparing for a new ministry site.  It’s been hours facing my computer screen, a zillion emails and countless texts.  It’s even settling for Burger King tonight only because it was easy and cheap.

Though I am tired, this is the kind of weary I like.  It’s knowing that though I am tired, what I’m doing matters.  It’s the kind of weary I want to be when He finally calls me home and I fall on my face at His feet.  I want to KNOW that I’ve given all I’ve got for Him…

…I want to be that weary.

I'd love to know what you think...
