Go to God and rest in Him.. He wants to bless you and to restore you. Breathe Him in with each breath because your road ahead is going to be steep & treacherous. Slow down and cling tightly to His hand and He will teach you the difficult lessons that can be learned only by hardship. Lift up your empty hands of faith to receive His Precious Presence. Light, Life, Joy and Peace flow freely through this gift. When your focus turns away from God, you grasp for worldly thing and you drop the glowing gift of His Presence as you reach for lifeless ashes. Return to Him; regain His Presence.
I see people almost everyday talk about how they’re tired. Tired of being on the go all the time.. Tired of this, tired of that. Many are tired of being sick & tired. I’ve been there.. Life can no doubt make you tired. It can flat beat you down. You go to work, come home only to pick up your kids so you can go to their extra curricular activities, come home again so that you can cook dinner, clean a little house, start some laundry, clean up after dinner and by now it’s already past 10pm and time to go to bed.. It’s already time for bed and you haven’t had any down time. The sad thing about this is that this is the story of most adults with kids. We even but have the nerve to question why the divorce rate is so high. Married couples have no time together or for one another.. There’s no time for romance. Heck truth be known when there is time both are to wore out to even think about getting romantic.
I learned that when you become sick & tired of being sick & tired it’s time to make adjustments in your life. What’s taking up most of your precious home time? Answer that question and then REDUCE IT… Is it really necessary that little Johnny do select baseball, take guitar lessons & karate?? Is he really wanting to do all these things or are you pressuring him to do these things? I think a lot of times parents push their kids towards things so they don’t have to deal with them. Why not let your kids be a kid? It will free up time for you too.. Who cares if Joey down the street is a multiple sports phenom. He’s 10 years old… Chances are that Joey won’t even play when he gets into HS because he peaked early or got burnt out. He could even hate his overbearing dad that never played any sports but forces his son to play them ALL even though he doesn’t want to. He’s 10.. Is your son or daughters resenting you worth it?? One day you will regret that missed out on making precious memories as a family.. It’s time we look at our lives and make some changes in our schedule. Stop sacrificing your marriages and your kids happiness because you won’t allow them to be a kid or want to live out your dreams..
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
My CHALLENGE prayer for YOU…. Instead of being sick & tired, turn to Jesus for rest..
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL day… Blessings & much love…D
Live your life like it’s your LAST 24!!
