I have to admit that Mondays are usually hit-the-road-running days for me. This Monday morning I just could not get out of bed early to do all the usuals. Little bear and my Leelee both felt sick last night, so I simply scrapped the usual Monday morning rush and kept them at home with me. I cannot tell you how many moments throughout the day I felt myself getting stressed that I was not getting through my usual Monday morning run around errands .... finally I heard the whispers of my Heavenly Father reminding me to simply "breathe" and to find "rest" even in the busy moments of the day. Rest??? But how when you have so much to get done??? This is a journey of discovery that I am embarking on with the Lord at the moment and something that I will probably keep posting on as I practically learn His principles of rest in my every day life. I truly believe that the promises found in scripture are not only spiritual but also practical. Here is how God showed me today to MAKE TIME for rest ...
Instead of cooking my usual Monday night supper we spontaneously decided to get fish and chips and headed down to the beach.
The girls got to dig in the sand, run as free as they desired and soak up the last few rays of sunshine before sunset.
I, on the other hand got to sit back and take in a cuddle from the best looking man around :) I so treasure these moments, because work and the routines of life certainly keeps my precious man busy.
As I looked out and breathed in the "rest" that God gives, I can honestly say that I now feel equipped and ready to tackle the rest of my week, and I am looking forward to discovering how to grab more moments like today.
I am praying that as you face your week, that you will breathe in all the refreshing that God desires you to receive so that you can tackle the rest of your week empowered by His love, strength, wisdom and grace!
All my love,
PS - How do you find REST in your busy days?
