A Time for Rest


I hate when I come home from work tired. Exhausted. Emotionally drained. Mentally spent. All creative energy zapped.

I wish I was here…

But, of course, I am not. Instead, I am sitting in my recliner wishing I had the energy to do something productive. I am scrolling through Facebook looking at all the other productive people.

And, that’s where I must step back for a moment, pause, reflect, and give myself permission to rest. It’s okay to have days like these. It is okay to not accomplish all my goals and dreams tonight. It is okay to rest.

Resting is not something I do well. Giving myself permission to rest is something that I really do not do well.

New year, new opportunities. Maybe one of the opportunities God wants me to embrace is the opportunity to rest. 

Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Maybe tonight, I am supposed to simply rest. And be okay with that.
