Too Pooped to Pop


Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt
Yesterday was my first day back to work for the two weeks following surgery to fuse my right sacroiliac joint. I started at 10 a.m. and got home around 8:30 p.m. Saw seven clients, one hour for each.  I came home exhausted, and went to bed almost immediately. This morning I feel completely wrung out, had weird dreams during the night that inhibited real rest. So today I anticipate at least four clients, possibly six.  And I’m too tired. I truly don’t know how I’m going to be able to be helpful to anyone, because my brain is muzzy and my body is telling me I should just go back to bed.
Silly song, right?  But it’s a pretty good picture of how I feel right now.
I tell my clients all the time that you can’t operate on the assumption that the way you feel must be the truth. That is the premise with which I’m facing this day.  I don’t feel
as if I can get through this day–but I will. I will get through the day because the truth is that I can do ALL things through  Christ, Who gives me the strength to do what needs to be done (Phil. 4:13).

In His strength I will climb my mountain today, and in His strength perhaps I will even be able to be a blessing. It’s in getting my eyes off my physical weariness, and turning my eyes to Jesus, that I anticipate a day of victory!
