Do you ever get tired? I'm pretty sure what I have isn't depression--cause I've gotten that tee shirt and pretty aware of the signs. I'm not sick--at least no one is telling me that I'm sick! So, I think I'm tired....I think I need a time of renewal and refreshment. It seems that with Spring busting into the song of colorful blooms, their time of rest has done them well. I'm wondering if I would blossom better for the kingdom of God if I took time to lie in a dormant state for a little while in order to experience a rapid boost of energy for the work I'm called to do.
I know that there are many decisions that are made that will please some and challenge others. I know that me trying to be creative and inspiring for weeks on end takes time and energy. So what am I afraid of? Am I afraid that if I take time to take a break, I will no longer be needed? If I walk away for a time of renewal, will God pull a fast one and challenge me more? What am I afraid of?
Easter is coming and then the end of Rebecca's semester, I'm thinking it's time to look at the possibilities of spending time with the family before the busyness of summer moves into full swing and we've missed another one together.
I hope you find time to rest...
