2 Corinthians 6:5 We have been beaten, been put in prison, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured sleepless nights, and gone without food.

Today I am exhausted. Self-inflicted exhaustion from doing too much and not getting enough sleep. In recovery we all learn about HALT. Don’t get to Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. But in practice we often ignore the warning signs. I have felt since Monday this week tiredness creeping up on me. Instead of stopping and taking time to rest I intentionally decided to push through the feelings and warnings and keep going. As a result I find myself exhausted.

I want to say to anyone reading this when you feel tired, take time to rest. If you don’t the result can be tragic.

The enemy waits patiently to pick off the tired and vulnerable. Don’t let it be you.
