You know what I am?

I am tired.

That is it, tired.

Physically and emotionally tired.

As a military spouse who is preparing for an upcoming deployment, I am tired.  I mean being a one-parent family, who cooks, cleans, takes out the trash, feeds the dog, homeschools the blessings, volunteers at church, does the laundry, pays the bills, brings the blessings to their activities, my own schooling, oil changes in the vehicles, calls the insurance company to replace our truck windshield, shovels the driveway, and shampoos carpets.  I mean who would not be tired? Oh did I mention that can all happen in one day?

Yes, I have my meltdowns and I cry and whine but I pick myself back up.  I cannot stay down.  The devil would love that but God does not want that.  He wants us to rely on Him, to trust in Him, and to have faith.  God has put us in a situation where trusting in Him is the only thing we can do.  Yes, I may be tired but God provides my strength to make it through each day. 

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13


  1. you are a strong woman, dear friend!! there are such greater things for us further down the road -- we just have to endure the seperation for now ;)

  2. I have a little stone with that verse on it in my truck :)

  3. You are a very strong woman and with God on your side you can be even stronger!! Praying for you and your family right now.

  4. Great post! we are fixing to enter our first deployment as well and we have a 15 month old and a 3 month old! Thanks for the simple reminder that God gives us strength even when we think we cant do another thing!
