Heavenly Hug

You ever needed that one big hug in the moment of uncertainly?

A moment of frustration, pain or anguish?

A moment of despair or discouragement… like you need that one big hug.

The moment that you are mentally exhausted. Emotionally spent. Spiritually drained. Physically tired.

I got an email this morning from Pierre Jeanty’s auto-list. It caught my attention right away…. “You’re emotionally exhausted. There’s a heavy burden laying on your heart. As if it is pinned down under a weight too heavy for anyone to lift off you.”

Then he goes to the “bullseye target….” I’m like get out of my prayer room!

Here is the boom — “You’re emotionally exhausted from trying to give DEAD THINGS all the life you have to live. Let them go!”

Yeah — that was real necessary and on point of what is needed to be heard. When you have done all that you could over and over to the dead things you actually come out of it feeling pretty dead inside. That is what the enemy targeted for. Mission accomplished.

Mission aborted — right here:

Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40: 28-31 NIV

A heavenly hug with words. Everyone gets tired, weak, weary, stumble, fall and the like…but if we HOPE in the LORD and not in dead things, we are going to live. And I mean really live. Free and unbound by any toxic situations. All the things trying to emotionally drain you like a vampire sucks the life out of its prey.

I’m done. I just need my heavenly hug.
