Burned Out :(

I went into the laundry room to dry a load of clothes. Before I started the dryer up, I decided to check the lint filter. To my surprise, it has not been cleaned in a while. The lint was very thick and fuzzy. When the filter is dirty it makes the dryer work harder, resulting in a burned out dryer. This can present a fire hazard.

Which brings me to myself; this past weekend I felt like I was going to have a break down. I have been slammed with task, deadlines, laundry, work, bills, projects, etc… People would call or text me, not with a “Hey how are you doing?” but “Can you?” “Will you”?? “Why not”? I felt just like that dryer; over worked and over heated. No matter how busy I explained to others that I was; they still found a way to add more. If only they took a second to do a lint check. They would have known that I was about to burn out. The Bible teaches us not to be people pleasers. I’m working on balance and learning not to be a “yes” person. One thing I do know; is to ask for wisdom and call on Jesus when I’m in need of rest!

Verse of Meditation: Matthew 11:28 (KJV). Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

If you desire to know God deeper and desire to walk with him closer, today
is your day. If you are not sure when you die if you will go to Heaven to be
with Him in eternity. Please say the following prayer out loud.

“Lord, come into my life, I will make you Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I believe you died on the cross for my sins and three days later you got up
with all power in your hands. Wash me and cleans me from all my sins and make
me whole before you today. I renounce my past and look forward to my future in
you. Lord fill me with the Holy Spirit as only you can. In your name of Jesus
Christ, I pray.”

If you have said the above prayer by faith, you are saved my friend. I
encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions about your salvation
or would like to connect to a faith-based church.

I'm a dedicated wife, author, CLC and mother of a blended family of five children and 3 grandchildren. I started a personal relationship with Jesus Christ on March 2, 2013. From that day forward, my life has forever changed! I love Jesus and I have a passion for helping women of all ages and walks of life. As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I enjoy helping moms and baby breastfeed successfully. My favorite moto is "Any breast milk is better than none." I believe every mother and baby have their own unique breastfeeding journey. I look forward to walking with families to make the journey rewarding! I have been married to my loving husband, Michael since 2005 . We have experienced God's unmerited favor on our lives. However, It has not always been easy. Just like other married couples, we have faced many obstacles: In-law issues, financial issues, blended family issues, infidelity, cheating, etc. In 2011, we were near a divorce and our marriage was nearly over, but God had other plans for our union. He has restored our marriage, healed, and delivered us both. We are now SYMBIS Marriage Counselors and the proud founders of A2GG (Adding 2 God’s Gifts (Adding2godsgifts.com) A2GG is a sports development and mentor-ship program for the youth. To conclude, we enjoy attending church and helping families overcome the strategies of the enemy.

  1. Wheew Chile! Thank you for sharing this. I definitely know how that can feel. Lord help us all not to be “yes” women and men, but give us some boundaries and wisdom on when to say no.
