Some days there is no stopping. From the time I wake up till the time I go to bed. There is always something to do. Somewhere to go & be. A chore to be done. A meal to be cooked. Laundry to be done. Ironing calling to my name. A phone to be returned. A bill to be paid. A grandchild to be played with. One to be rocked. Noses to be wiped. And wiped. Did I say WIPED??? The wiping was this week 🙂 Which brings me to the question…..how can one little head & nose produce so much? Seriously. Where does it come from? But back to the word at hand…..
There were afternoons this week that longed for it. Just let me lay down, pull my comfort blankie over me & rest. But there was to be none this week. Sometimes the voice in my head tells me, “It is all for nothing” or “They don’t appreciate it” or this one is the worst, “You’re getting too old. You can’t do it.”
This morning I am so glad that I read my devotional before posting….”The voices of the world are a cacophony of chaos, pulling you this way & that. Don’t listen to those voices; challenge them with My Word.” (from Jesus Calling)
AMEN TO THAT!!!
“Come to Me all who are weary & I will give you REST.”
There it is. Rest. He said it. He meant it. He gives it. REST.
My daughter made the comment to me last night….”Just think, come the end of June, you will have the house all to yourself.”
My response to her? “Yeah, I know.But I am not sure I am going to like it at all.”
And I meant it.
May I remember that it is His rest that I truly want. May I remember where to find it. How to get it. I just need to go to the Source.
He calls, “Come to Me. I will give you REST.”
