Right...

I'm so lazy. Why? Because. Great answer. I have so much to do, yet I end up chatting on skype or watching a movie or contemplating how to put my profile picture on this blasted blog!! Have you ever just been so frustrated with yourself and your sin because you know you struggle with whatever, yet when you have the opportunities to rise above the sin..you fall right back into it. I'm so lazy.


Lord, give me rest.

Hi Brittney - (I hope it's okay that I comment on such a personal post... but I love your authenticity here.) It sounds like a dark kind of feeling... maybe one that's easy to relate to for a lot of us? Almost feels like a kind of death inside... Heavy, deep, & pressing. I know you posted this a month ago, but I'm praying for you today... agreeing with your prayer for rest & adding a request for more life in every form.

Ps 16:7-8... "I will praise the Lord, who counsels me at night in my heart. I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken."

Life & peace, sister. - John

Hi Brittney - I got your comment over at Hungry & Thirsty... Thanks for your grateful encouragement! I found you through a comment you left somewhere (maybe on Nate H's or Emerging Women?). My wife & I are in Chicago & will be moving back to Arizona next summer to launch a new kind of missional community. I (& I know my wife) can resonate with this post. I guess I wanted to encourage you 'cuz so often we beat ourselves up blaming our sin for the lethargic (maybe evenn depressed?) feelings we experience. Sometimes that's true... but other times, our hearts are trying to get our attention & tell us that something else is going on. Anyway, God is good & breathes fresh hope into us in the most creative, redemptive, & heart-healing ways. Thanks for your openness to a strager's comment! Press on sista!
