day 35 – marathon weeks + fragments of thoughts

“runnin around like a chicken with your head cut off” – my gramma

i am very familiar with these weeks.  thankfully, not a lot of them have happened since graduating from college.  not in the traditional sense, anyway.

i think there are different kinds of marathon weeks.  of course there are the weeks where you have no time to do anything but go to sleep and do it all over again the next day, weeks where meals are counted in how many times you can quickly “grab a bite” before the next thing, where every moment is dedicated to something or someone.

and then i think there is a marathon week of the heart.

thankfully my weeks haven’t been too filled up with to the brim work, school, or familial obligations.  just 3 days of working, a little job searching, keeping house, spending time with people, and running errands.  but my heart has felt a bit like a marathon.

-to be satisfied in Jesus alone-

doesn’t that just sound nice?  i read it and it gives me peace, even.  i know it’s possible, i’ve been there before, and His Peace is free.

but sometimes you have those weeks when your heart feels asleep, stale, or dissatisfied.  where meeting with Him is frustrating, grating up against your flesh.  where earth feels more real than heaven.

my head knows the roots, and i know what i need to do, but what i really need and desire is for my heart to have a revelation!

the end of the “i can do it myself” rope is always a great place to be.
