I just watched this sermon by Steven Furtick
with Elevation Church and all I can say is WOW, just WOW.

Maybe it was the title, “Tired on The Inside” that caught my attention? But God KNEW I needed this message today to speak into that tired and weary place within my soul.

I am going to be vulnerable here for a quick minute and just put it out there. I am tired on the inside. It is not just Covid-19 that I have been battling for the past 5 weeks. It’s the last 4.5 years of ongoing health issues. It is the worry and fear I see in my husband and children’s eyes. It’s knowing that you did nothing to cause the chaos in their lives. However, because of the storms you are entrenched in, you are the cause of why they are hurting so badly. It is the emotional, mental, and spiritual battle. It is holding onto the knot at the end of the rope with every ounce of fight I have left and trusting He is fighting the battles with me and for me. It is choosing joy in the midst of so much sadness. It is knowing it is ok not to be ok and that grieving is essential in healing. So yes, I am tired, we are tired.

But know this, I will walk through the valley of the shadow of death and fear no evil because I KNOW God is with me. My ongoing prayer is that the masses would come to know Him, His great love and His unwavering faithfulness. They they would want more of Jesus and be willing launch into the deep with Him. That if somehow, somehwere, someway, someone surrendered their lives over to the Lord because of my story, His story through me, well it is all worth it. I will walk through my Samaria over and over again so that YOU can meet Him face to face. “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21)

If you are tired on the inside WATCH this sermon. Tired does not mean you weak. Tired does not mean you don’t have faith. Tired means you need rest and like Steven Furtick says in this message, sometimes we just need to sit with Jesus at the well. The well where He can meet us and fill us with His living water.

Praying for all of you that are in the midst of a storm. For those who are barely clinging to the end of that rope. For those who are weary, tired and overwhelmed. I am praying that you can step away and find a place of solace, a place of peace and sit with Him. Let Him meet your and speak to those places hidden deep within the crevices of your soul that you have been avoiding or are too scared to acknowledge. Allow Him to lavish you with His love and allow Him to breath His healing breath into your collapsing lungs. Trust that He is the way to bring you rest and freedom. “Come to me all who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yolk upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest in your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-20)
