rest

Rest. Not always an easy topic for me. I struggle to stop, to take breaks. Even in the moments that are supposed to be "breaks" for me, I find myself stressed, working on the next project and pouring my energy into anything and everything. It's hard for me to just STOP. To just rest. In Psalm 46:10 He says: "Be still and know that I am God."

Ouch, that kicks me in the gut every time I read it.

That doesn't say: keep stressing over that homework project with your kindergartener so you look like the best mom. It doesn't say: try to attempt all the things in one day. Nor does it say: the more "things" you do will make you a better wife, woman, mom or follower of Christ.

It doesn't say anything but to BE STILL and KNOW. That means letting go and trusting God. Trusting. When your income doesn't quite equal what needs to be paid each month. Trusting. When your son is hurting because of a bully at school. Trusting. When you just can't seem to get more than 2 hours of sleep at night.

Trusting. Taking a moment to stop, rest and know that He is God. That He is good.

rest

As I strive to be a more intentional being, I first have to rest in Him. Realize that I can't do it myself. That even me being intentional is meaningless if I am not giving Him full control.

I encourage you to take some moments to truly rest this weekend. Whatever that means for you! Just rest and know.Β
