Am I Tired?

My life revolves around the Lord in some way or the other, the preacher, the church, etc. As a pastors wife I get asked many times do I get tired of it. My answer is always "That is All I Know". Alan has been pastoring since we were 24. That's right 24 and I know no other life. There have been times that I or the family have had to take a backseat to the needs of someone else in the church, but there have been many more times that the Lord has poured out His blessings on us because of the call on my husbands life. We have seen God do some amazing things in the church, and in his peoples lives and also in our own lives. For me, there is no greater honor from the Lord than to be a preachers wife, or to be the mother or a preacher. So some days there is much to do, and other days there is much more to do. And I do get tired a lot.

But today, I want to share something with you that I have read in the Bible that has been in my Bible Study the last couple of days that has really stuck in my mind about being tired.

Acts 28:28

"For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed: lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them".

I want to see, I want to hear HIM. Oh please Lord don't let me get cold on You or get tired of hearing You or about You, or get tired of seeing You or seeing the things You do. What a tradegy to get tired on the Lord and become cold-hearted.

Is our hearts waxed cold because we don't hear or see anymore?

Because of Christ
