I’m Tired …

I have made that statement too often in recent weeks. The irony is that I am tired of being tired. I have figured out the biggest reason that I have been tired so often recently. It is time to make a change. Actually. it is a reboot and a return to something.

What I have come to realize is that my fatigue is a result of something lacking.

It is not sleep that I am lacking. It is not healthy food or vitamins. It is not exercise and it is not time off. My wife might comment at this point and say that I have been lacking all of the above. She might be correct. But those things are not why I have been tired.

I have been tired because of a lack of creativity. I love to dream of possibilities. I love to imagine what could be. I love to create, sometimes to a fault. I realize that I have been tired because I have allowed some things, and some people, to steal my creativity, and I am tired of it.

It is time for a reboot. It is time to be creative. It is time to make some changes and release my creativity again.

I am annoyed that I allowed this to happen. I am grieved that I stifled some other people’s creativity during this time. Please accept my apology.

Acts 2:17 says, “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” This verse from Acts is quote from Joel 2:28. Old or young, I want to be a part of this holy creativity. I love that in God’s plan, we are never too old or too young to a part of His creative plans.

This afternoon I shook loose some of the junk that has been weighing on me. I began typing some thoughts on possible things. It was invigorating and it was convicting because it has been too long. But I am focusing on the invigorating part because I have dealt with the convicting part.

It is time for this change/reboot on my God-given creativity.

Look out and hold on, this could be a bumpy ride. One thing is for sure, it won’t be boring and if you join in it will be a blast.
