I'm Tired.....


I thought I'd do something a little bit different for today. This is a list of things I've been feeling lately and then below the list I included God's response to my thoughts and also a song I really enjoyed. I hope you enjoy it....

I'm tired of trying hard and getting nothing back
I'm tired of trying my best and still failing
I'm tired of being strong
I'm tired of acting joyful when all I want to do is cry
I'm tired of caring what others think
I'm tired of being neglected
I'm tired of being invisible to others
I'm tired of showing love when I don't feel it
I'm tired of always putting others first
I'm tired of being cast aside
I'm tired of being vulnerable
I'm tired of asking for help
I'm tired of being sad
I'm tired of feeling lonely
I'm tired of not feeling loved
I'm tired of not being excited for anything
I'm tired of being cast down by others
I'm tired of failing
I'm tired of not feeling good enough
I'm tired of being judged
I'm tired of doing the same thing everyday
I'm tired of feeling unneeded  

:D


God replies...

I'm tired of trying my best and still failing.....Part of failing is learning, learn from your mistakes and move on (Isaiah 41:10)

I'm tired of acting joyful when all I want to do is cry....I understand how you feel. We all need someone to care. I care for you even when you feel nobody else understands. I understand how you feel! I'm here for you. (Hebrews 4:15)

I'm tired of caring what others think...Don't worry what others think of you- all that matters is what I think of you (I Samuel 16:7)

I'm tired of being neglected.....You are never neglected by Me- you are always on my mind (Hebrews 13:5)

I'm tired of being invisible to others....Your presence never goes unseen by Me, even though sometimes my presence goes unnoticed by you- I always know wherever you are and I'm always protecting you! You will always know where I am too because I will always be with you. (Joshua 1:9)

I'm tired of showing love when I don't feel it...I know how it feels to show love to others who don't seem to accept it. I know how it feels to do something so amazing and feel so unloved. (Hebrews 4:15)

I'm tired of always putting others first...You will never be second in my mind- you are special and you will never be put beneath another in my thoughts (Jeremiah 1:5)

I'm tired of being cast aside...You are so important to me! I'm always here to listen to how you feel. I will be your best listener and I will be open to listen to your heart. I understand your circumstances and know what is best. (1 John 5:14)

I'm tired of being vulnerable....You are not vulnerable to others- they may take advantage of you but never will they get by with hurting you (Psalm 7:11)

I'm tired of asking for help....Don't be afraid to ask for help. I'm always here for you and I will always help you through (I Peter 5:7)

I'm tired of being sad....Don't be cast down, enjoy your life, know your purpose and remember all that I have done for you. (I Thessalonians 5:16-18)


I'm tired of feeling alone.....You are never alone. I'm always with you. Never will you EVER be alone- I'm with you right now (Psalm 73:23)

I'm tired of not feeling loved...Others may make you feel unloved- but know that I will never stop loving you. My love surpasses anyone's love for you- I love you and I created you just how you are on purpose! (Romans 5:8)

I'm tired of not being excited for anything...If you don't feel excited for anything know that you can look forward to a future with Me. Look forward to an eternity of no sin or tears! I can't wait to spend time with you for an eternity! (Psalm 26:3)

I'm tired of being cast down by others...Others may hurt you, but know it will never go in vain- I see everything and I know all that you have gone through. I know your life story. I know you best! (Proverbs 15: 3)

I'm tired of failing....No person is perfect, admitting you fail shows that you are humble and doing something about your failings shows that you are taking the next step.(Romans 3:10)

I'm tired of not feeling good enough....Everyone is precious in my sight. Nobody is more special than another. Nobody is more special in my heart than you. (Jeremiah 1:5)

I'm tired of being judged.....Don't focus on what others think of you, don't worry about the false stories others say about you- you know who you are and I do too. Don't let others put you down. (I Samuel 16:7)

I'm tired of doing the same thing everyday....If your tired of doing the same thing every day- do something extra special, do something extraordinary! (Philippians 2:4)

I'm tired of feeling unneeded .....You are so important in other people's lives. You may not know just how important your life is to others, how much you impact them and how much you change them. Don't doubt your importance- you are so SPECIAL! (Luke 15: 4-8)

I thought I'd share this song that really encouraged me. It is so inspiring!! I hope if you get a chance that you could  listen to it!! : )

  3. Britt,
    I get how that is I was going through something like that not that long ago, and you know what, it was during that time that I felt closest to him. Sometimes God puts us through those experiences so that we can grow to love him more.

  5. Britt this is a really great post! I want to print it out and give it to all my friends. :) It has so many great reminders of what God says when we are struggling. I think you should make this into a book. It might be a small book, but you could add a few more, and it would be a truly helpful and encouraging book. I know I would buy it! I would probably buy multiple ones to give to people! :) I'm not joking, this would make a great book Britt! Please think about it.
