Who Is Tired?
I sit here today, thinking gosh, I am tired. Another Monday, another whirlwind of errands, appointments and schedules. The run, run, run definitely can wear me out, but also the fretting about something is actually my quickest way to run down.
When my mind is anxious, my body doesn't rest. And I don't know about you, but I just LOVE to plan my future or now my kid's future...so yeah, anxious when I don't know what will come can get me tired real quick!
But then these verses just came across my path MULTIPLE times this week, because you know what I say, HE speaks!
So here we go....
Yes, yes, I know, you know this one or have heard it a million times, or have it on a notepad somewhere, but there are two parts of these verses that really have been highlighted to me this week.
1. I actually already knew this one, YEAH! and TRY, key word, try to practice it when I feel myself getting funky (aka negative), or tired, or anxious, but be thankful!!! And being a list girl, actually writing what I am thankful for is the quickest way for me to help turn my mindset around.
but now for my new, need to incorporate like yesterday part of the verse...
2. PEACE, the peace of God will guard my heart AND mind! Oh that sounds heavenly. But here is how it was presented to me that I just love, and will hold on to.
God loves us. God will answers us. Sometimes His answers take time, but in that time, we don't have to wait miserable. We get to wait WITH peace. He gives us PEACE in the waiting!
This is amazing friends!!!! We don't have to wait for the answer to find the peace...I mean, wow!
So forget the worry, anxiety and fretting on the future, Hill, He offers peace right now. Enjoy the moments, find the joys in the in-between, and in the waiting. And can we just say it again, God is good.
