A day of rest
I love Sundays that I do not have to work. Lately, I have had to work too many of them. But today I was able to go to church, come home and take a nap. AHHHH!!! Time to restore my weary body. Matthew 11:28 says: Come to me all who are weary and burdoned and I will give you rest." Praise God that He knows we will become weary in this world. We need time to not only rest our bodies but also time to rest in Him. To "be still and know that I am God." I am one who needs frequent reminders of this. I tend to go, go, go and then wonder... why am I so worn out? Ususally it means I have not taken the time to adequately rest my body and rest in Him who restores, refreshes and refuels me.
