Sometimes life gets so busy. I mean really busy. Busy like your days start running together and you can't remember what you ate for breakfast. When you get busy like that, it also means that you probably don't make the time for God. I mean he should understand because you're filling your days fulfilling the plans he's given to you. Right? No.. Wrong! Because you're so "busy" not making time for him, you probably don't have a good handle on how busy you are. You probably feel tired and uneasy because it seems like no matter how many hours you put into all of these projects, the to-do list never seem to get done. Then, your busyness is probably causing you not to take any time away for yourself. You know what I'm talking about.
God is literally standing in your doorway waiting on you to invite him in. I mean.. He's the one that opened the door for you, and made a way for you to walk through it. At the very least we should invite him in. Being as tired as we are, and possibly full of anxiety, we shut him out thinking that he doesn't understand.
But... He's still there. Waiting.. Saying, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest (Matt 11:28 *NLT)."
Truth is.. As strong as we may seem to the world... We're tired. Mentally. Drained. For having to think for ourselves and for all that depend on us to solve their problems and lead them to the right direction.
But at this moment we have a decision to make.. Do I keep carrying my heavy burdens because I believe I'm stronger than God? OR Do I admit that I need to take rest in the Lord, and what shall be is what HE has said?
Chose rest. Go to sleep. Cast your worry and care unto him because he cares so much about the things that that weigh so heavily on our hearts and minds (1 Pet 5:7).
I know this all too well, and tonight.. and nights to come. I will chose to take rest in the Lord.
