Struggling with Crushing Exhaustion


crushing-exhaustionThis post has nothing to do with sex.

But it’s a platform I have to ask for prayers. So I’m going to humbly ask.

I’m struggling with crushing exhaustion.

Yes, the coronavirus crisis is part of that, meaning it is exhausting to be homebound and homeschooling and various other disruptions because of the crisis. We all are navigating exhaustion along these lines, of course.

But I was already dealing with crushing exhaustion before the pandemic hit. I was already depleted with no end in sight because of something else going on in our lives. Something I can’t really unpack completely here. And those circumstances haven’t changed.

I’m so tired. I have never been so tired. Not even when I had newborns.

So this is my plea to simply ask you to say a prayer for me. Pray that tonight I get a good night’s sleep. Pray that I find some kind of emotional and physical reserve to do tomorrow like a trooper.

Please just pray. Thank you.

    May God grant you all you need to live faithfully into your many important roles, beginning with sleep tonight and patient endurance tomorrow. Amen.

    Praying for you! Crushing exhaustion is no fun, especially when we have to still find ways to go. Praying God’s peace to quiet your mind and calm your soul.

    I have experienced both physical and emotional exhaustion both of which effected my ability to sleep for an extended time.
    (yes when I’m over tired, I can’t fall asleep, without a distraction, like putting on an old movie and setting the sleep alarm for 60 minutes and the volume low as I follow with my eyes closed)

    My emotional exhaustion was ignited by intense stress that lasted for years. Without going into details, it felt like I was in a deep hole.

    When I prayed to God, it felt as if he began to fill the hole I was in with his “love” one shovel full at a time. Emotionally I was tapping each scoop of his love, with the bottom of my feet as the hole was filling up and I was able to walk out.

    It felt like God truly had my back.

    I pray that whatever is making you tired that you are able to feel God covering you with his love. (oh and take it easy)
