For When You are Battle Weary
Do you ever feel battle weary? Maybe you have toddler or preschoolers who are full of energy and don’t always get along. Maybe your work environments is draining or you have some relationships that are really hard right now. Maybe you are a teacher like me or a homeschooling mom trying to balance many hats. Sometimes the days get long, and we become battle weary.
So this weekend, I have been recharging and regrouping. My time has been spent piddling around my house, reading, exercising, and spending time with my kids. I have been thinking about the upcoming week, and ways I can either help with or deal with becoming battle weary. Here is what I have come up with.
1. My battle is not against flesh and blood. Eph 6:12
Most battle weary days involve people whether it be family members, students, or coworkers. I often take things personal which makes things worse. So when children or students misbehave or someone says something that hurts my feelings, I need to remember who the real enemy is. To be successful in battle, I need to keep things in perspective with God at the focal point.

Recent world news of beheadings, Christians trapped on mountains, etc. in combination with some extended family members going through some serious trials had me pretty weary. My best of dealing (after allowing myself a moment to grieve) is to lay it all at the foot of the cross, to place world concerns and loved ones in His hands. I have a sister in particular facing some giants in her life and always welcome anyone to add her and her family in prayer. Thanks for sharing your encouragement here – with God, truly, all things are possible. Have a wonderful weekend. (following you by e-mail)
Praying for you and your sister right now. You are so right we can get battle weary just seeing all that is happening around the world. Laying it all at the feet of the cross-great reminder. Thanks for reading my blog. TJ
