A big source of the problem for me is that my restless leg syndrome problem has been rather severe for the past few weeks. It is quite "maddening" NOT to try and relax so I can sleep. For a number of nights I have had to exhaust myself before I can fall asleep. And unfortunately I can't sleep in late so I have been getting up very tired.
But the good news is that the biopsy of my polyps shows that my stomach and intestines are clear! :-)
Tiredness obviously affects productivity so it is a bit harder to cope with busyness especially when there are a couple of "crisis" situations thrown into the mix.
But at the same time I find a lot of strength in 2 Corinthians 12:9. The context may be different but the reality of grace is very real.
7 To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.
8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.
9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
Okay back to work on my Easter message, then off for some visitation.
