Just a thought to help start your week.
I bet none of you ever have technology issues, do you? Ha. Just as I finished typing a word for you this morning, and readied my finger to hit “send”, what button did I hit instead? Well, “delete”, of course! Wow.
I wanted to tell you to look at this hammock hanging here, and let it speak to you. Maybe it says to you, “Come to me, bring me your burdens, take a load off, and rest for a little while.”
Of course, no hammock ever spoke those words, but God the Father did when He urged us to “Come to me, you who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Who among us refuses to admit that we need rest?! Whether we like to admit it to the rest of the world or not, even God’s little children find it difficult to trudge along some days. He invites us to take a breather, lay it all down, and rest our head in the arms of the One who orchestrates our days.
Maybe you need to step away from the technology, turn off the phone, and listen to the silence. Rest. Don’t treat that word as a “four-letter word”. Admit you need it, and be thankful He can provide it.
Just a thought.
