For the last several days, I’ve had a gnawing feeling of unsettleness. I’m not sure that is even a word, but it seems to describe perfectly what I feel, you know what I mean when I say this? Lots of thoughts swirling in my head that are counterproductive and even though I knew it was, I couldn’t pull myself out of it. Well this morning, a friend reached out to me reminding me that I am loved and supported. Just this simple act meant so much to me and changed the course of my downward spiral. As I pondered this… I remembered an important concept I truly understood not to long ago.
“Let go and just be”
What does this mean? The Lord teaches us to honor the Sabbath day. What He is saying to us is to rest in HIM! When we try to do only what He can do, we get stressed, worried… this leads to dissatisfaction, discouragement, discontentment and confusion. We only find rest in Him. Jesus says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28. When we try to do things in our own might, we have lost our rest in Him. We have lost our Sabbath day. I was trying to do things in my own might and just yesterday I said to my daughter that I felt like I was not busy enough. Those words were a clue, but I didn’t get it till today.
I hope this encourages you as it has me. Let go and find your rest. Release the burden of being someone you are not.You are loved!!! xoxo
