Yes, you too? I am very much feeling exhausted...Whether it be from lack of sleep due to late night English classes I am teaching or arguing with my spy, I am only half sure. Whew! I somehow have the energy and desire to post something tonight. Somehow it helps me process.
What am I doing? I want to fly when conflicts arise now. I don't have the fight left in me. You know the fight or flight reflex during stressful situations?
I am in a dilemma-a pickle-up a paddle without a canoe, if you will. No one can really help me but God and I want to listen to Him.
I come up with my own half-way solutions, but they are far from complete. I need completeness in Him. I want to rest in His grip, but I feel so trapped in some ways (as we all can, I guess.)
Where is my escape? Psalm 121. I always come back to this, my favorite Psalm.
I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Please pray for wisdom and discernment.

  1. Hi Jenn, thanks for the kind comment & becoming a "Follwer"!
    I agree with your statement about blogging helping you process your thoughts & feelings. So true & pretty healthy I think.
    I'll be back to read you some more new friend!

  2. From one Jennifer to another -- it's a pleasure to meet you. I was delighted to see your name and face pop up as a follower at Getting Down With Jesus ... and now I am finding "rest" for this weary soul here at Chosen ... Precious ... Treasured. You are, indeed, ALL THREE.


  3. This is also one of my favorite Psalms. What peace it leaves us when we know that all we have to do is lift up our eyes to the Lord and he will help.

  4. Yes! He is our help--our strength--and our comfort! Oh how I know how you feel and I'm looking to HIm with you and praying for you as well!

  5. Thank you all for your sweet prayers and comments-I heart them very much:)
