plain tired.

I'm tired. Exhausted. Weeping tears tired. Yes I didn't sleep well last night, (thank you teenage boys who don't sleep, at night anyway) but it's more than that.

I'm tired of worrying. About what? Our son. The relationships that he seems so intent on ruining: with me, his father, his siblings. Are we really that bad?!

Worrying about money. Why is there always more month at the end of the check?

Worrying about my health. Worrying others about my health.

Worrying about my folks, my kids, my grandson.

Do we ever stop worrying?

Matthew 6:25-27 -"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable then they? Who of you by worrying can add a signle hour to his life?"

Lord, take away my worry.


  1. Girl, been there!

    Remember: take every thought captive!

    2 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV) "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."

    Remember: God has no plans to harm you!

    Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    Remember: Worry about nothing, pray about everything!

    Phillipians 4:6 "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done."

    Remember: Your Son belonged to God before you held Him. He will not ever be able to walk away from God's love!

    Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

  2. I didn't know you had a blog! I am so sorry about everything you are going through. You have been on my heart & mind a lot lately. Now I know why.

    A word of encouragement for you. I see a lot of myself in your kiddo. I did the same things to my parents, made some of the same stupid
    choices, caused some of the same heartache for my parents. But God is serious when He says he will never let go. And no matter how far I ran, I found I could never outrun God.

    Stay the course with your son. It will be ok. And, if he gives you any grief, I will smack him upside the head! :)

    Love you! You are a blessing to me!
