To my dear friend,
I hope you are well and happy today.
I value honesty a lot and so I wanted to let you know that this week I am so tired. Every day I come home exhausted, from working hard and never being finished and chasing people up and committing to too much and just general busy-ness. There are so many good things that I have been given but at the moment, I feel entirely overwhelmed and out of control. I would pay someone to pretend to be me for a few days while I snuggle into a doona and sleep.
One point of encouragement though has been Jesus, who said,
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
When I am tired and frustrated, He promises to provide rest and peace to those who trust in Him and I need to remember this as I get through the next five months particularly.
Love, Ally xx
