Do you ever have days

when you just feel drained?

Today was one of those days.

It wasn’t a bad day…I think I’m just feeling the effects of a late night, a busy morning/early afternoon, a nasty headache, and honestly…writing yesterday’s post exhausted me emotionally.

So today will be short and sweet, which isn’t always bad. :)

I’ve been trying to read through some of the Psalms

this week. On Monday I read Psalms 16 & 17 and found so many promises that connected with exactly where my heart is right now.

(Here are a few… you get my paraphrased versions.


He is my Lord; I have no good thing apart from him.

The Lord is my portion.

I have a beautiful inheritance.

I have set him before me; because he is at my right hand, I won’ t be shaken.

He hides me in the shadow of his wings.

I will behold his face in righteousness; when I awake I will be satisfied with his likeness.

Love those two Psalms.

And I love how, even though I’m feeling drained, His precious promises fill me up.




  1. Hiya Mel! You stopped by my place (Prodigals Story) and commented, so I thought I’d do the same *smile*

    After reading some of your writings, I’m thinking we may have been seperated at birth! *laugh*

    I love barefoot! More accurately…..I despise shoes!!!!!

    I was scared out of my mind to bare my soul on my blog. God gave me a voice I didn’t know I had. Because He is the reason I even have something to say!

    And it SO isn’t about legalism, or denominations, or others preferences! WOW!! My newest tattoo is Solus Christus which is latin for Christ Alone….there ya go!!!!

    I’ve added you on my favorites list…..and you can count me in on reading every day!

    Oh and thanks for stopping by and being the first (and only, pout) person to participate in Faith Friday!

    See ya next time,
