You will find rest
Updated: May 30
Yesterday I was spaced out for most of the day. I was tired, the little boy child woke me up in the middle of the night and climbed in bed with me. Not only was I woken up at 2 am, 3.5 hours before my alarm went off, I slept with little feet in my back while he slept sideways and I clung to the edge of my bed for fear of falling off.
I made silly mistakes at work, my brain had a difficult time keeping my tasks straight. Last night I went to bed early. I was exhausted.
I woke up this morning feeling better than yesterday but still tired. My body craved more sleep! Waking up at 5:30 am after sleeping in over spring break the week before had taken its tole on me. Usually the morning drive is when I do my best thinking. Its the only time I'm alone. I think about blogging and about God mostly, but this morning I didn't have it in me. And I was reminded that its OK to be tired. Its OK to rest.
So this morning, I prayed that Jesus would take over. I was too tired to even think of a prayer. I just said the name, Jesus. Jesus. And He did take over. I was filled with joy and peace today and enjoyed my Friday before the hustle and bustle of Saturday morning soccer set in.
Jesus wants us to rest in him. When you don't have anything left, when life's demands are too heavy, when your burdens are too much to bear, I pray you just say His name and rest.
