“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)
Recent weeks have been busy ones for me. I have felt overwhelmed and over worked. I know that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. This is my favorite bible verse – yet I am still learning that while I CAN do all things, I do not HAVE to do all things.
I am learning to balance life, to step back a bit, to take time for me. I have a long way to go, but I am confident that this balance is one that I can find.
Where do you go when you are tired? What do you do? How do you refresh?
Once I completed everything that needed to be done these past few weeks – I was able to step back and relax a bit. I was able to His that have sadly gone unnoticed and unappreciated during the hustle and bustle of “life”. The warmth of the morning sun as I walked with a friend; the sound of a gentle rain; the laughter of a young child, the time to reflect on His word – each a and a gift. I am finding joy in the little things that surround me.
As you work on this week’s Providence 365 challenge – take time for personal reflection, are you finding joy in His daily ? Are you taking time for you? Know that God loves you. He is there to wrap His arms around you and provide you with the rest that we all need.
