While on Spring Break last week, I did not complete half of what was on my “To Do List”. I was tired in my spirit, my soul, my mind, & my body. I was so drained mentally and spiritually that I did not even post a devotion last week (forgive me). Have you ever been there? Have you ever been exhausted to the point of not wanting to get out of the bed? Well, I was on last week.
The daily routine of life can be overwhelming and wear on your mind, body, and soul. When we find ourselves experiencing these feelings, it is definitely time for a “Time Out”. Just as in any sport, when a coach sees that their players are worn and need a break, a “time out” is called.
A “time out” was exactly what I needed to rejuvenate my mind, body, and spirit. My “time out” was a week long and I feel much better. However, I have promised myself not to wait so long to take a “time out” from life. I have learn to shut down all devices and rest!
Help me to remember that I can rest in You! Father, help me to discipline myself with turning off ALL devices to rest in the bosom of Your arms. In Your word, You stated, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). God, I surrender to You to receive rest!!
In Jesus Name,
