Have you ever felt weary, right down to your bones? That is the only way I can describe the feeling I have had for the past week. As I have learned from past experience, I need to embrace such times and recognize them as a prompting to slow down and rest. I need to choose my activities thoughtfully during this time and allow myself to unwind and be at peace.
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
If you are anything like me, you typically try to ignore the urge to rest. Slowing down just doesn’t seem like an option when life keeps you running 24/7. Resting feels like a luxury and becomes our lowest priority. I know, however, that this is not a healthy pattern or how the Lord intended me to live.
So today, as I enjoy a well-deserved holiday and celebrate the freedoms I hold so dear, I will begin my down-time. As part of this rest period, I’ll be taking a break from my Sunday blog. I hope that you will spend some time exploring and reading a few of my past posts. I invite you to use the search feature on my home page to find a favorite Bible verse or a topic you’d like to explore. (I especially welcome your comments and always cherish your feedback.) I pray you will find peace as you peruse. 😊
Wishing you a restful summer!
