In the last couple of years, I often find, that I have times where my body gives in and I have to sleep. I have no choice, I do it or I have no more strength for even that after noon or evening. It’s a weird feeling.
I find it a real struggle during these times, because I have many responsibilities to deal with, I like to be independent and not ask for help or leave the dishwasher for the day because who else is going to do it?
Whilst I was resting, I was really too tired to even think, I tried very hard to keep my thoughts in the right frame of mind, not to feel sorry for myself – but to keep on meditating on ‘Today is the day the Lord has made’ and accept that today was a day of rest.
It did make me think later on that day , how often in our busy lives do we find time for God? We have a choice in life where we go, who we spend time with, what we drink and what we eat, but like these every day choices how often are we spending time resting, and giving God the chance to work in our lives? Is that a challenge to you this coming week. To step away from the business of life and let God speak to you? Why not pray about your diary and ask God to cut out the unnecessary meetings and time that may be wasted.
Here is a verse that stood out to me thinking about resting in God
5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
