I know you’re all probably expecting posts about the Missions Trip I just got back from, and I promise they’re coming… next week?
But today, I have something else on my heart. Actually, it’s more like consuming my mind. Since last week I’ve been an emotional wreck. I don’t know if it’s due to a lack of sleep, medication, stress, caffiene… I’m not sure. But I tear up at just about anything these days.
Music. Prayers. Sermons. Testimonies. Pictures. Facebook posts. Happy children. Love. Stress. EVERYthing.
Stressed? What could I possibly have to be stressed about? Well, for one, I’m stressed over my health. I know the Lord is in control, but it’s frustrating to be tired all the time because of mono. It’s frustrating to still be having pain almost 7 weeks post-surgery. I’m stressed over finances. Let’s face it… I’m slightly broke. I have school books that need to be paid for, but there’s not enough money in my account right now. Oh yeah, and classes start next week. I have pre-assignments in classes that are due this week that I cannot do without books. *sigh*
I’m stressed because my schedule is about as overwhelming as a flood. I’m taking 6 classes this semester (19 credit hours), working full time, serving in various church ministries, and attempting to stay as healthly as possible.
Sometimes I question whether or not I’m borderline depressed. But that’s a weakness… and I don’t like to be weak. I don’t really even like admitting that I have weak moments. But lately, I’ve been having a lot of them.
So what does a person do when they get like this…? I know, I know… pray more. read your Bible more. sleep more. watch your diet. exercise more. do something for others. just let it all out and cry.
Do you ever get “down in the dumps” like this?
